You’ve Gotta Give Some to Yourself

“Abigail, you need to forgive yourself.”

I began realizing that it wasn't just in my head, and I started asking:

"How do I forgive myself? What is it that I need to forgive myself for?"

I've come to realize that the reason why I find it easier to forgive others but struggle to forgive myself is due to the standard in which I hold myself to, knowing my potential in contrast to my choices, and trusting myself.

It is in our imperfections that our true beauty and strength lies.

The Power of Being Present

Picture being present with the Lord as that memorable scene from Beauty and the Beast. When Belle comes down the stairs in her beautiful yellow dress and all she and the Beast notice are each other. They lock eyes, and in every movement they make are in sync. The couple seems to have been in a world that is entirely their own. This scene is as close to what it means to be present with the Lord in Disney terms.

[…]Sitting in his presence is more fulfilling, peaceful, loving, and healing than anything the world and people will ever give you.

[…]There is power in being still. Being tranquil in the presence of God strengthens us because we are present with the rock that never moves; hence, we are unshakable. Being present with the Lord causes us to discern effectively and confidently. Being able to be present with the Lord allows us to heal and perceive life and people the way that the Lord does. To be present with Christ will enable us to add more color ( I adore art) and depth in our relationship with the one, our soul loves the most. There is life, growth, freedom, peace, and consistent peace when we a present with our Father.

Would You Choose to Love Someone Who'd Never Choose You?

If you knew that no matter how long you love someone, (what you do for them, how many times you tell them that you love them,) that they would never choose you and would never love you, would you continue to love them for eternity? Would you want to sacrifice your time and energy for those who would never accept you? Would you continue to pursue someone who you knew, come rain or shine, they would never say yes to you?

[…]if someone says no to us, we reject them. Some of us put up a good fight, but we stop eventually because we weren't as crucial to the one we wanted to be accepted by as we hoped. This is our nature.

Jesus is the anomaly of us. He knew while he was hanging on that cross that many will reject his sacrifice and love. Y'all, God knew that not everyone would say yes to Jesus, but he chooses to love regardless of it.

[…]Saying, "Hey Jesus, I'm with you," is to say, "even if no person says yes to me Lord, I want to keep pursuing your children with eyes like yours, heart like the one you have, and acceptance that has no prerequisites."

Bold Surrender : The End of Me & Beginning of Him

"I love you. I have and will always love you. You are never going to be enough when it comes to the battles that have been set before you. Your abilities are minuscule in comparison to your obstacles and my power. But darling, I love you so much. I'm madly obsessed with your crazy self, and this love isn't going anywhere! I will fight these battles for you. I have armies among armies geared up and ready to slay your enemies. You just need to sit yourself down and trust me. Understand that at the end of you, darling, that's when I begin. I've got this child. So let me do what I do best, and you do what I've been training you to do: trust me."

You are not enough for this life you've been called to live.

Keeping still in the middle of a storm when everyone is packing up and making moves doesn't make sense. […]you're faith, decisions, and life wouldn't make sense.

[…]the beauty of the moments when our lives feel like they have been thrown into the fire is where we focus our eyes on who we're with. […] there is no way you and I can seek the face of God and please the Lord without faith. Works are the fruit of faith

To The One Who Wanted To Give Up

I…have...been...there and it sucks!

I wish I could perform a psychological surgery and remove this depressive mental state away. But...it doesn't work that way.

They have all sacrificed everything for me. Each person I have mentioned has laid down everything in hopes of seeing me and seeing me live this life to the fullest.

It was the reminder that my mother and father sacrificed their comfortable home in Ghana for my education, joy, and success. It was the reminder that my brother, though 9 years younger than me, looks up to me and wants to see me make it in everything I set my mind to. It was the reminder that all the beautiful humans that called me friend valued the genuine smile they initially fell in love with. It was the reminder on the day that she left this earth, the day my grandmother completed her mission, that I recalled that nothing, absolutely nothing, in this world would make her happier than to see me ( broken, hurting, and ratchet in all) living a life that is filled with joy and hope.

I..have...been...there.
