As I woke this morning and allowed my thoughts to have their way, I began to have an inner mantra, "I AM NO LONGER AFRAID." Afraid of what you may ask? You see when WE begin to declare I AM NOT the ears of others perk up because you are setting boundaries, creating new and no longer accepting something ( an action, a way of life, a word, a limitation) in your life. Have you come to the place in your life where you are ready to BOLDLY declare "I AM NO LONGER?"
This morning my declaration is...
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO BE ME.
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO ALLOW GOD TO SHIFT ME INTO HIS PLAN.
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO BE A FRIEND.
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO BE A STORYTELLER.
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO BE.
I AM NO LONGER AFRAID TO LOVE & BE LOVED.
THIS IS MY MANTRA.
THIS IS MY DECREE.
THIS IS ME
You may feel you are not ready to make such bold statements in your life. You may believe you are too broken and battered to create mental, emotional and physical boundaries in your life. Yet, I beg to differ. All that you have gone through in life that you and others thought would kill you, literally, has not taken your breathe. You feel the inner turmoil of the fear, the pain, the doubts, the fears, the anxiety, the depression, the insecurities and more. Yes, Girl, I know that song far to well. I could have sung it as an anthem in my own life. It is is constant reminder that God is merciful and loving, because I AM STILL HERE.
SO ARE YOU
You are the amazing woman that God always knew you to be. It may not look like it in the mirror because all you see are your broken pieces, your damaged heart and your negative mind. What if you took one moment to say YES to what God says about you instead of replaying the same ole' song in your heart and mind? What if today, you take a chance on yourself and God? What if, YOU BELIEVED IN YOU? Sounds scary, right? I know that feeling also. It sounds like a hurricane erupting in your soul of all the reasons why you are not good enough to receive anything contrary to the image of the broken women you see. It causes a storm of emotional roller coasters of words you and others have spoken over you that crushed you. It is in these moments that we must take the storm and DECLARE PEACE.
Well Lynette, that's easy for you. You have already overcome this storm. I have overcome and I am overcoming. None of us ever arrive at the place where we don't have to FIGHT. None of us ever arrive to a place of being without a hidden pain. Yet, the more I choose to give myself permission to climb on the lap of God and lay my head on His chest and let go, the more I can really say from the depth of my soul, I AM NO LONGER AFRAID.
I want this for you too sis, I want you to be able to accept in your life that Greater is for you
Start with one thing
Give that one thing to God,
Trust His process, even when you don't have all the answers
Create your I AM NO LONGER STATEMENT
Stand on it, Shout it, Decree it, Announce it, Live by it, Believe in it........FOR YOU
I see you and God sees you. Create your own life mantra today and NO LONGER BE AFRAID...
