Broken For A Purpose
Realizing and owning my brokenness was a process. I had to ask and allow God to heal the inner part of me so that it could reflect on the outside. The process did not happen overnight, it took years, heartaches, headaches, pain, suffering, sacrifices and so much more.
Allowing others to dictate who I should be cost me years of brokenness. I allowed myself to become an individual who God didn’t mold me to be. I allowed others to mold me which included worrying about weight, appearance, goals, life, finances and much more.
Having to hear all the negativity from others began to weigh in on me. You’re too fight, you’re gaining to much weight, you’re losing too much weight, you keep having babies, what are you doing with yourself, you’re working too much, you’re working too hard, you’re not working enough, he’s not good enough for you, he’s too good for you, you’ll never be anything, you’ll never further your education, no one will hire you, your children won’t be anything, you’ll never rise above your situations. I can go on and on but all of that is irrelevant to me now. But God🙏🏾🙌🏾!! I’m soooooo in love with THIS woman, the woman who God has made, molded, created and called me to be. It took a long time for me to get here, but God. In the words of one of my buddies “when I look in the mirror, I don’t see what they see”, lol. So what/who are they talking about, because that’s certainly not me, lol. No, I’m not perfect, I don’t always do right, I don’t always have good thoughts, yes I get mad, I say the wrong things, I have thoughts of being petty and “clap back👏🏾” at the negative people, I’m human like everyone else. At this point in my life, in this season, I don’t have time for all that. I’m reclaiming my time!!! I thank God for those who are in my life who accepts and love me for who I am. Those who supported and pushed me into this season. Those who witnessed my brokenness but yet loved me through it all. Those who witnessed the “raw dawg” (in my Cousin @yolonda,s voice) part of my life. I love and appreciate you all more than you know.
