Good Morning Beautiful Survivors!
Have you ever noticed as we travel through this life, labels or stereotypes become attached to us, like sticky notes? We don’t have to do anything to acquire them. Some of them are negative stereotypes, like divorcee, cancer patient, single mom, bankrupt, poverty, uneducated; you know what I mean. It seems that you are what your credit score says you are. Let me tell you, today, that you are worth so much more than your credit score. You are not just another number, like your insurance ID number, or your social security number. In God’s eyes, you are worth far more than mere numbers. The list can get longer and longer, the more we travel through life.
Or, we can turn it around. You may be going through a rough season in your life, but, remember, it’s just a season. Seasons change and your dry season can change too. Never let anyone tell you that you are stuck in a rut, and that you can never get that label off of your name tag. It may take a little time, but you are so much more!!!
Jesus came to change these negative labels into positive ones. He is in the business of transforming lives. What may take you a lifetime to erase, He can do it with a single prayer. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you aren’t worthy of all the good things in this life. Tune out the negative voices all around you and listen to what God is telling you today. He calls you Over-comer, forgiven, chosen, greatly loved and beautiful!
I know one thing for sure; I’ve been through a lot with my cancer journey, but I don’t want anyone to look at me and think of cancer. Instead, I want them to look at me with a positive mindset as a beacon of light to others and that there is hope, after all. I want them to know that I may not be able to help them, but I want to redirect them to the one Who can!
I want to be remembered as Fighter, Warrior, Joy, Faith, Hope and LOVE! Now, those are some labels that I want to attain. Pursue them like you would your Masters. Shake those old stereotypes off and clothe your self with all that God says you are! Put on praise as a garment. You are going to see the goodness of God in the land of the living!!!!
I love you guys!
