This holiday season called for family time + travel time.
There was a lot of togetherness with my siblings, in laws, and extended families,
but with every moment, during every holiday (Thanksgiving + Christmas), I learned something new about them and myself.
Joyful, big deal things.
Somedays, difficult, big deal things.
Lots of big deal things.
we had one another.
I had so much support from my people in 2015 I could bust.
The kind of the love and kindness that if I thought about it too much, I would just cry all. the. time.
“you mean to tell me you are going to let one person tell you that you can’t do something? AND you believed them? I know you can do it and so does the Lord.”
It seems so basic, so simple, but there is something about that that strikes me.
He isn’t just talking about other people telling you that you are incapable of experiencing big deal experiences.
He is talking about that little voice in your head that tells you no.
That little voice that reminds you of your fears, anxieties, insecurities, and weakness.
He is reminding us (all my fam jam) that we are capable of far more than we ever imagined.
He is reminding us that the Lord sets you free to accomplish things that He created you to accomplish.
He is reminding us that we were made to have divine purpose, which is meant to be accomplished on earth.
I think far too often we don’t really feel known, understood, or valued by others or even ourselves.
So, we push to prove ourselves to the world, to make people notice us, to give ourselves a name or a place in society, or all together…
we try to be someone else.
No matter how exhausting, emotional, joyful, exciting, or scary life may become,
we have so much freedom to use our unique gifts, time, and resources to make an impact that lasts for eternity…
not to prove you’re worth something,
but because you’re worth EVERYTHING to God.
So with all you are worth, what are your goals for 2016?
I would love to know 🙂
