I had a conversation with my girlfriend today about my struggle with my emotions and my tendency to absorb the energy of those who I encounter on a daily basis.
I knew I had it bad when I woke up with a headache that didn't belong to me. My heart was filled with emotions that didn't apply to my current moment and I just couldn't understand why I wanted to stay in the bed when the sun was calling me to come outside and shine with it. I cried because I didn't want to stay in bed, I wanted and deserved to feel the Joy that belongs to me.
My girlfriend proceeded to enlighten me with some words that changed my life. She said that I was carrying the energy of others around me, instead of giving them back to God. She reminded me that my assignment here on earth isn't to be Jesus for I can't save anyone, but I can be an instrument that God uses to pray for those who are hurting.
I needed to pray, I had to release the people who I love and the people who I'm striving to love back to God. For when I release them, God can do what needs to be done for them and me.
I was also reminded that every person who enters our life, enters for a reason and a purpose and we must be open to love while protecting our hearts.
Life is a journey! A journey that comes with pain, but also passion and purpose.
My heart's desire is to grow closer to my Abba so that I can become the woman that he designed and created me to be. I want to make God proud of me and I am thankful for my friend Lavern, who spoke life back into me this weekend.
It is so important to have support while you are on this journey called life and I hope and pray everyone who reads this dose today will remember that life is truly worth living!!!
Passion and continual blessings to all of you.
