A, bb appreciation prose 🌹
It’s that smile,
Pat on the back,
Cheering from the sidelines with their large signs
That keeps you going
The energizer bunny strong you are if you let them tell it
High-fives and “good jobs”
A+’s and compliments
Likes and long fb comments
They make you blush,
Make your heart flutter,
Decieve you into believing that void and self-doubt you feel you can fill with just them
It’s that stamp of approval you get for answering the question correct
That slight hesitation you experience but they catch
You need to feel like they like you
And that whatever you decide to do they think is right too
You rely on them for pick me ups and warm heart revival
But what you don’t understand is that you need none of this for your survival
You are beautifully and wonderfully made
In his image
You are great and it’s independent
Of what people think
Or what they tell you
Everybody got an opinion, they’ll pull you up down left and right too
Spending so much time trying to please people you’ll always lose you
Most importantly you’ll distort the point of why God made you You
Unique and cool
in your own way
Spreading your own light each and every day
Embrace who you are no matter what they say
Do what’s in your heart and try not to stray
From the person he called you to be
He’ll always make a way.
Because really it’s His stamp that is the only one that should count a thing
Sometimes you go through things in life that seem to derail you from your path so much that you wonder, what am I doing here? Like how did I get to this place and what is the purpose. What am I supposed to be doing. I know where I want to be but how do I get there. All of these things run through your mind and things can be incredibly discouraging. You start to feel like why am I alive. What have I done. Am I important. What am I doing that’s important. Especially with people all around you flaunting their accomplishments and successes everywhere you look.
In life there will always be obstacles. The struggle is the same as time progresses, however, there is a purpose through each struggle. And this purpose helps you to figure out who you are and what your ultimate purpose is, as well as gets you closer to God. Because your faith will be tested each time. You will be tried and tested and for some it’s a battle between doubt and worry. God wants to know that you will rely on him and seek refuge in him through anything. And mostly that you will put him first through everything.
So I’m telling you, let go of all of that nonsense.
Get free of all that bondage.
God got you.
