This is my Roar!
32 years! That’s how long it has taken me to realize to who I belong. 32 years is how long it has taken me to be comfortable in my skin and be proud and unashamed of where God has brought me from! Guys! This is my year to let God truly transform me into all He has called me to be. I’ve been stuck in a victim mindset for a while and I didn’t realize it until this past year. Acknowledging this helped me break out of it. I’m not a victim. I’m free now. I don’t know who has been praying BUT through those prayers it has all finally clicked. Maybe you are older than me… this can be your year too. If you are younger than me don’t waste your life feeling down on you. You are so important to God. You are so loved by Him.
It’s 2020 people!!! 2020! I’m done. I’m done with all the self hate, guilt, comparison and so on. I’m ready to confidently transform into all that God has called me to be. I’m ready to wake up and choose to love myself. I’m ready to love me because Jesus loves me. I am His and in Him I’m 100% complete.
I’m tired of feeling bad for who I am!
I’m tired of wishing my body looked the way my brain tells me it should.
I’m exhausted from 2nd guessing myself as a mother, a wife, a coworker and so on!
I’m done thinking I’m not good enough to be where God has brought me!
I’m worn… truly worn from the worry. I just can’t worry anymore.
I’m tired of getting mad over really stupid things. Like, so mad my day is ruined!
Oh!! It’s gonna be hard. So hard but this is the year I say goodbye to all the broken parts of me. We live In a broken and fallen world but I don’t have to live like I’m broken. I can choose to walk in His freedom. You can too. Because we are His we are free!
It’s His! All of it!
It’s time that we break out of this mindset that we are too broken. It’s time we stop living with a victim mindset. It’s time we stop thinking that our past defines us. It’s time we stop feeling unworthy of His love. It’s time we stop telling ourselves day in and day out that we don’t deserve the forgiveness that He has given His life for. Of COURSE we don’t deserve His love and forgiveness. None of us do. BUT HE still gave it because His love for us is that big.
I’m ready to love all of me.
I’m ready to feel good in my body because it’s healthy. (Even if I do have cellulite growing on my butt)
I’m ready to be proud of the mother I have become and the wife God has called me to be.
I’m ready to know God placed me where I am with all the gifts I need to make a difference.
I’m ready to praise God for all the good and let my life be a blessing to others.
I’m ready to shout his love and this freedom I have found in Him from the rooftops.
I feel like Kevin from the movie Home Alone. I’m standing in the hallway yelling at the bad guys “Did you hear me? I said I’m not afraid anymore!”
I feel like we all need a Kevin from HOme Alone hallway moment.
I mean seriously. What makes you and I so different from anyone else who we esteem higher than ourselves? Nothing!! Absolutely nothing!
I’m no different to God!
I’m no less special to God!
I have no less value to God!
I’m loved no less by God.
I am His and in Him I can stand free from all self hate, comparison and feeling of not measuring up because I am His. You are His! You are His And in Him is where you find where you belong, your purpose and His love. His love for you is so big and it does not run out.
Is this too much? Have I gone too far? Maybe I should edit out the cellulite joke. Well actually that wasn’t a joke. Have I made some uncomfortable? I don’t know! If I have, I guess I’m sorry! Look! I think it’s pretty clear that I’m not perfect but I’m a work in progress. Jesus is continually working on my heart and transforming me into who He has called me to be NOT who the world has called me to be. Guys! I can’t say it enough. I am HIs. You are HIs. We are 100% complete when we realize that He is where we belong cellulite and all. Here we are in 2020! Are you ready? I am! This is my roar!
