Have you ever felt so passionate and thrilled about something that you feel you can conquer it?
Just last semester I took up my Creative Writing class and what a thrill! To stich up words and sentences under the shade of a huge tree just to express that voice in your head and get graded afterwards felt like winning a hundred bucks. I totally enjoyed that class and excelled in it as well. Everything was going right until the day that I saw what may grade was.
I was almost at the bottom of the class.
Pure disappointment washed down the ray of happy bubbles inside me. But why? I know that I’m doing well in the class. So I asked my professor what happened to my grades. She made me sit on a chair and so did she and the clutter filled desk bore witness to the explanation. ‘’You did not submit a paper to me.’’ I nodded and remembered the question and answer paper that lay crumple at the bottom of my bag. Apparently that paper requires little of your creative juice and I forgot to pass it. I understand my professor’s sentiment, as much as she wants to pull my grade higher because she thinks I deserve a better grade, she can’t because my recorded scores tell otherwise.
Just like in this world, some people’s standards will say NO, YOU CAN’T. YOU ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH. And sadly most of the time we believe I this lie. We limit ourselves even though deep inside there is a unsilenced voice whispering that maybe you can only to be shut down by the shouting of this world and it’s taunting fears.
Let me remind you something. You are fearfully and wonderfully made and you are designed to make God happy and not this world. Your identity in Christ is more that celebrity like! You are His child, His favored princess!
It may hurt sometimes because the persons who bring us down are the person we thought would urge us to be the best that we can be. It maybe our family at that holds us back, our friends who do better and make you feel worthless or that teacher who branded you as stupid or that boss of yours who deemed you incompetent. Let me remind you now that you are nothing of what was said above. You are strong, smart, talented, determined and world class.
Always remember that God the Father smiles proudly at His child whenever we seek to break free from the lies the enemy tells us.
Do not forget who you are.
With love, A.
With love, A.
God I pray that may the person who is reading this be blessed by your spirit. Give your child the strength to see and believe her worth is not determined by the people around her but by you. And that we are worth more that the sparrow. Father teach us to love and forgive those who prosecute us. And may we glorify and exalt your name forever and ever.
In Jesus name we pray.
