Like a caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly, so will you—into the beautiful woman God created you to be!
God wants to heal our hearts and the pain we have endured, bringing the joy back into our lives. He can only heal us when we are ready to surrender totally to Him and His will by letting go and becoming vulnerable. Are you ready to say goodbye to your past? Find the freedom to step into your healing and purpose. The enemy wants to keep you distracted by encouraging you to run from your pain and cover it with worldly desires. Instead, choose to go through the storms, into the arms of God.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you: he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
Let the little girl in you be free to know God has her back. She is safe, forgiven, and loved—no matter what. As a little girl, I lost my voice through the pain and heartache. I was told how to feel and at times felt nothing at all. When my parents divorced, I was so lost and alone. I felt unloved, unwanted. I felt abandoned by my father and disconnected from my mother. The pain was too great to bear as a child lost in my emotions. The only way I knew to cope was to escape, which led to drugs, alcohol, and men. Thank God I can share that, because it all ended in true FREEDOM when I gave my life to Jesus. We were made to be strong and courageous, and our voice matters! Our opinion matters! We matter! Speak truth, and let your voice be heard!
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
When I found the Love of Christ, I found my strength, my hope, and my courage to overcome my fears and put my trust in the LORD. I had never trusted anyone, so it was hard to lean in and learn to trust the LORD. It took some time, but today I can say I am FREE to trust in Him. Take the step today to put your trust in the Lord, for he wants to bring freedom to those who are captive. No matter what your past holds, he still loves you and will forgive you. It is through the storms and pain that we find our greatest victories, and we must take the step and be willing to overcome and not give up. I know how hard it can be to walk in the pain and struggles of life. In the agony of my pain and tears, the ONLY way though was with GOD. Some days he had to hold my hand and pull me along, while other days he held me in his arms and told me everything was going to be okay. I know how scary it might feel to take that first step and surrender your life to GOD, but know that you are not alone. He wants to be your heavenly FATHER who loves you so.
And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18 NIV
Are you ready to be transformed? To become the woman God created you to be, and not what the world says you should be? Are you ready to receive the love the Father has for you? Know that you are the daughter of the Most High, and He loves you so.
Prayer: Lord, today I surrender my life and will over to you. I invite you into the dark places of my inner heart and ask you to heal me. Show up and help me become the woman you created me to be, not who I think I should be or have become. Teach me to be still and instruct me in the ways I should go.
