Have you ever just saw a theme arise out of all the readings, posts, or blogs that you come across? I have and these are the words that I compiled in one sitting at the computer, so I made them into these paragraphs, some have minor alterations; however, for the most part each was written down as I found them in the order received…

Keep your head up. God gives His hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Life has knocked me down a few times. It has shown me things I never wanted to see. I have experienced sadness and failures. But one thing for sure, I always get up! No matter what you have gone through and what others have put you through, you are still you. To embrace happiness, to find your passion and to love yourself, remember these things were never taken away from you. Nothing can stop you from rediscovering yourself. The greatest journey always begins within you.

Heavenly Father, thank you for today. Thank you for my life, although it is challenging at times. I believe I am stronger with you. I pray that I would grow closer to you everyday. Refine me Lord, transform my character, ignite my love for you and others and help me to build up relationships in Jesus name. Lord I ask to help me to never dwell on the past, as it can bring tears, to never worry about the future as it can bring fears, but to live today and everyday trusting you and the provisions you bring knowing that it will always be enough. Instill in me a will to never give up, to never lose hope. To always have faith, so that I can face the trying times knowing they will pass. Instill in me patience, asking for my dreams to come true, and in everyday place a smile on my face trusting in You that together we will pass through the pain and live according to your grace.

Discouragement is what the enemy sends you when you are making them nervous. You will always be too much of something for someone, too big, too loud, too soft or too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge. Apologize for mistakes. Profusely apologize for unintentionally hurting someone, but don’t apologize for being who you are. So live a life of love, honesty, appreciation, kindness and strength while sprinkling it with a little silliness, laughter and things you’ve not done before and never forget all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord.
