A letter to myself (Just a reminder)
Sometimes I wake up with tears in my eyes but I know I have to remain strong and I don’t have to ever stop looking forward to the future. I stumble and come across so many hurdles, sometimes they are small and sometimes they look gigantic for my tiny frame to climb. There are even times when I grope around and fumble in the dark, there are the times when I do not know whether I am coming or going. Giving up though I must not. I will hold on tight to my ship that seems to be sinking and bless it with all that I have because joy always comes in the morning and trouble don’t last always. If Samson had strength in his hair and David found his strength in a stone, surely I can take a reed in the midst of a fast falling waterfall and it becomes my strength.
I do not have to compete with my brothers and sisters or my neighbours. Life is a marathon, it is not about winning but whether I have run the race. It says in the Bible I have run a good race and fought a good fight. It’s not about anyone else it’s about me. I will not trade my life for anyone else because I have learnt to circumnavigate around my own trash and know how to recycle it and create a masterpiece on the most beautiful canvas ready to hang up in my own gallery.
My own life is a carefully woven masterpiece and I must not follow trends, let me be the trendsetter. I am not the next best thing after so and so; someone else can be the next best thing after me. No one has to tell me how great I am, I already know I am legend, I stand astride my own history book as phenomenal as I can be. My thoughts govern my reality, so I may take a few wrong turns but one way or another I will get to where I want to be.
I am beautiful, blessed, highly favoured, anointed and no one can stand in front of me and tell me that they are my blessing. Anyone who comes across my life should realise I am the one that is a blessing to them and not vice versa. After all I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am the virtuous woman they wrote about in the Bible. Whatever my hands touch is blessed, so whenever I feel tired I will read to myself this reminder. When I feel weak I will gain my strength back from this reminder.
