I’m done with wanting to be accepted and understood by people that don’t even accept or understand themselves. To be included or thought of in activities that really serve no purpose in my life. Done with wanting to be validated or recognized for things that won’t even matter later. I just want to be pleasing in His sight. And when people look at me, all I want them to see is Him.
To see how he is a healer, a provider, a promise keeper, a miracle worker!
They will know that it’s all God. Nothing but God’s blessings, grace, mercy, and faithfulness.
That I was able to make it though, that I was able to change, that I was able to do this, and able to have that. God will get all the glory from every area of my life.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
“You think you know me but you don’t. How do you supposedly know me, when I don’t even fully know myself? I know my capabilities and I know my worth, but sometimes I surprise myself. I have done things that I am not proud of. And although I cannot write my wrongs, I can improve my future. I have achieved many things I never thought were possible. I am still learning to love myself. I am still learning new things about myself. And for as long as I have breath, my story remains under construction. I am a good woman, not an angel… of course, I sin too. But yet, still, with all the setbacks, the comebacks, the rejections, and the achievements, I am proud of the woman I am becoming.”
– Tene Edwards
