This article is dedicated to the vessels that God took His time in creating.
Every ounce of love, strength, boldness, creativity, beauty and so much more -- God inundated us with the ability to withstand and to endure.
Some of you have been so battered and torn down by situations, circumstances, and poor decisions that reaped coals of distress that you go into "auto-pilot" mode.
I know this all too well because I have been where you've been and I'm not too far away from it now.
The Word of the LORD declares, "But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high" (Psalm 3:3 NIV).
What an amazing declaration of faith, especially when it seems that instead of things getting better, it's getting worse.
I know what it's like to have tear-stained pillows, swollen eyes from the pressure of crying so hard that your soul cries along with you.
The hollow feeling in the pit of your stomach that is filled with so much distress that you wonder, how am I going to make it past...
this moment? Imagine what King David was feeling when he said, "I am worn out from my groaning.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears" (Psalm 6:6 NIV).
Daughters of God, my kindred sisters, as I encourage myself...
I extend it to you as well.
YOU are a VESSEL FULL OF POWER! (Say it to yourself! Then repeat it again only this time louder and more confidant and with total belief!) I KNOW it's not easy.
I know doubt and fear try to creep in but the awesome power of sound! To use the instruments of our voices to make a declaration of power because of who we are and whose we are! Today, I believe it and I need you to believe with me! There is a life awaiting for you to grasp a hold of and conqueror.
Do not be defined by your current circumstance and decide today to no longer be a victim of your situation.
The greatest thing about starting over is there is a "beginning"! Once a decision is made to no longer being a victim you not only set yourself free but those that hurt you.
Free then from this dismay and watch God move in your favor! Go forth and conquer what's yours! NOW!
