This journey called life has many ups and downs. I'll never forget the day I gave my whole heart to Christ five and a half years ago. Like a new born baby I was ready to learn and explore everything the world had to offer me. Of course the road wasn't easy, but nothing worth having is easy. The more I grew in this 'new' me I realized I had placed a clearance tag on my worth. Downplaying what God had for me, pushing in the background what the spirit had already revealed, but too afraid to leave my normal, my village. I began to pray. I asked God to guide me, remove what is not of Him, prepare me and use me for His glory. The scripture says, " I CAN DO ALL Things through him who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13. I no longer am afraid when its time to stand. I no longer have fear in my worship and praise. I no longer worry about what people say about my change. I no longer have fear when no one understands when I choose to STAND ALONE.
I can't water down my faith to make anyone else comfortable. I must say it's amazing when you get to a place when you stand alone, but you are still not alone. Gone are the days my praise was watered down for those surrounding me. I speak, praise, and move in my authority.
The song says.....
I'm walking in authority, living life without apology,
It's not wrong dear, I belong here.
So you might as well get use to me!!!
