June 16, 2017 bullies and hard things

Standard

Hello, StrongHeart. 

Bullies. 

They come in all shapes, sizes, ages.

After an attack you have a choice. You can either let their opinion defeat you, or you can choose to be grateful for the things you know are true. The dark and empty place their words and actions come from don’t define you. You arrive at this turning point, and say to yourself, ‘am I going to let them define me?’ ‘Am I going to allow false accusers to define me?’ 

No. 

I Rise. 

I am going to let the Word define me. Every victory, every success, every goal, every prayer, everything that is a result of obedience to His call each day – that is what defines me. 

Call me a monster, and I’ll turn it into a prayer ladder to God’s best for my life. I’ve learned to use negativity as my driving-force motivator. The Holy Spirit uses it to light my fire, to keep going.

Use that.

Use that negativity in your life to make yourself better. I guarantee you this: God always wins, and that means you win by choosing to stay in His Spirit. Stay the course. 

Ask yourself what defines you.

Grace starts here. 

Grace bats last.

“We are pressured in every way but not crushed; we are perplexed but not in despair; we are persecuted but not abandoned; we are struck down but not destroyed. We always carry the death of Jesus in our body, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.

For our momentary light affliction is producing for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:8-10, 17‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Wake up.

Bear the weight of GLORY. 

Go.

About lewis3sunz

I am a blessed woman. Wife, daughter, mother of 3sunz, sister, author of 'Spirit Move Me: Memos to you that sway with the Holy Spirit', Jesus loving Oklahoma girl, I love exploring truth, early morning is my favorite time of day, teacher/trainer, lover of books and news and fascinated with butterflies, extreme right brained pondering creature; enjoy helping others find meaning, tap into their own inspiration and intuition to work more effectively, and overcome struggles and the rising and falling of life in the everyday grind and in small business/micro business worlds. Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey. I serve as Business and Industry Director and Business Development Services Coordinator at Canadian Valley Technology Center in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
