Our God Reigns

I am a believer and I’m not ashamed of that… I don’t and won’t judge your belief structure God allows us freedom of choice xxx I’ve made my choice and right or wrong I’m sticking to it.

Our youngest son is in Matric and writing his first final exam tomorrow… oh my how time flies and I find myself already feeling as though very soon (in quite a few months time) he is going to leave the nest and want to get his own place (still a while to go… I know) and I honestly find myself feeling as though my heart is being snatch straight out of my chest leaving a void the size of planet earth.

Ok ok so that’s an exaggeration but any moms out there probably know what I’m talking about.

I’ve been told that I’m insane because I’m feeling like this.

Just yesterday I brought him home from the hospital and now BAM….

This is me…. The greatest showman…

I’ve always breezed past this song on You Tube and thought… I’m not going to listen now… tomorrow I will (maybe) but not today.

And then today happened… someone I respect sent me the link and said.. “This is just for you… it should be your anthem for 2019… give it a listen and tell me what you think…”

I listened and I totally loved it… here are the words…

This is me…

I am not a stranger to the dark, hide away they say…

Cause we don’t want your broken parts…

I’ve learned to be ashamed of all my scars…

Run away, they say, No one will love you as you are.

But I won’t let them break me down to dust

I know there is a place for us

For we are glorious…

When the sharpest words want to cut me down…

I’m going to send a flood gonna drown them out

I am brave

I am bruised

I am who I’m meant to be…. This is me!!!!!

Oh oh oh oh oh oh ….

Another round of bullets hit my skin … Well fire away… cause today I won’t let the shame set in. We are bursting through the barricades and reaching for the sun… (we are warriors) Yeah that’s what we’ve become…

I won’t let them break me down to dust…

I know there’s a place for us…

For we are glorious!!!!

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down… I’m gonna send a flood gonna drown them out… I am brave, I am bruised… I am who I’m meant to be… This is me!

Look out cause here I am.. and I’m marching to the beat I drum… I’m not scared to be seen, I make no apology…THIS IS ME 🤗

Oh oh oh oh….this is me!

And I know that I deserve your love ❤️ cause there is nothing I’m not worthy of…

When the sharpest words want to cut me down, I’m going to send a flood going to drown them out

This is brave… this is proof…. this is who I’m meant to be…this is me.

Look out cause here I come… and I’m marching to the beat I drum. I’m not scared to be seen I make no apologies, this is me!

I love this song so very much because it is as though it was written for me.

Thank you for inspiring me xxx

Love you muchly.

This little light of mine… I’m going to let it shine.

A our journey into the new week is upon us we need to realize yet again that we have the power to either allow people to break down who we are because they can or cut out their words of harm and poison and take back our lives and our power.

Is this week about strategy or is it about chance?

We have the ability to cut out their words of disrespect and hate but knowing that we don’t have to be who they say we are…

Let’s live a little and be examples of radiant courage and strength and fight back for our sanity and self respect… You see I don’t need people to like me for me to be a roaring success in my life. Yes it would be nice to be respected, appreciate and liked by people around me but I don’t think that haters will make me hate myself and everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I actually like who I am as a person.

If people really knew you… I’m not talking about the dramatic performance you put on (or even the comedy) I mean knew you… what would they think? Unfortunately in all honesty, what others think of us has absolutely NOTHING at all to do with us… everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Is there a little bit of truth in what they say about us?

Is there opportunity to learn from it and grow or do we need to make changes in our lives?

Sometimes it is better to keep our mouths solidly shut and just observe.

E motivated and don’t lose your identity to be something we not. Ignorance is definitely not bliss because it makes us look stupid.

Look deep within and notice that just like we do not want to be judged we in turn should also not be judge-mental (so) over others. Be not only inspired by others but also inspirational to those around us.

Today will be a challenging day and it is also going to be ok. I am going to be myself every step of the way and that’s ok because I know who I am within myself. I’m here to learn more about me everyday and even when I am judged or ignored I know I’m going to push myself to bigger and better.

I need a hug more often than not and I know it’s going to be a good one.

This is our chance to not only sparkle but kick adversity in the teeth and know we are who we are… unapologetically. Let your light shine brightly in all you do because you can.

Challenge accepted?

What do you think?

Pay it forward

Its a good day to be alive…

Today is our day to shone and pay it forward by blessing someone else… whether its something small or big just so it.

Get out of your comfort zone and make someone’s day.
