-Made in His image-
Keep your head up darling
Oct 02, 2014
Keep your head up, little fighter. You can do this.
I know sometimes it’s hard. But you’re not alone.He’s right there with you. He’s taking your hand and he’s guiding you to more stable ground. You’re almost there. Just hold on a little bit longer.
Tell yourself that every day you wake up and find that life is still harder than you imagined. Hold on just a little bit longer. Because better days are coming your way. You’re going to know joy and companionship and acceptance and love again. I promise. A few dark moments doesn’t mean you’re headed for a dark life. You are basking in light.
Don’t give up. Don’t think that it’s over. Everything is just beginning. Life and beauty are just beginning to make themselves manifest. Let hope and faith embrace you and lift you up. You deserve to fly. And God will give you the wings to enable you to fly to your dreams. You don’t have to give them up. Just because someone tells you they’re out of your reach or impossible doesn’t mean they are. You determine your dreams. And with a heart committed to Christ you will achieve them without question.
Don’t just commit your efforts or your works to Him – commit your life to Him. Give it all to Him. Give it all to Him and watch what was once yours be turned into more than you could ever imagine.
Never give up, little fighter. You’re almost there. You’re so very close to the place you were created to be. You may have taken a few wrong turns along the way, but there’s nothing to worry about, darling. They were considered by the heart of God and promised to fit into the story of your life. He’s writing your story along with you. And with Him it is undeniably a story of redemption and forgiveness. So let the tears fall if they need to. Because your faults and misgivings are no longer the sum of your whole. Let them wash away every thought in your mind that tells you that you can’t do something. Let them silence the voices of those who couldn’t find it in themselves to believe in you. I believe in you. He believes in you. We believe in your ability to do great things and to affect the world around you.
Chin up, darling. Look on your life with pride. Because it is so incredible. It is the most amazing testament of love and devotion. Did you know that you’re loved? Did you know that when you felt most unlovable there was a Being in this world that would have done anything for you? He hung on the cross while your name was whispered to His heart. He saw everything. He saw everything you’re ashamed of. And He wanted you. He wanted you more than anyone could ever want you. He wanted to spend eternity with you. He wanted to know you. He wanted to share perfection with you. He wanted to invite you into His family. He saw you and knew you were worth it in every way.
You are worth it, little fighter. You are wanted. You are cherished. You are consistently pursued. You are valued. You are enough in every way. Keep your head up, little fighter. Fight the good fight of faith and let the word surrender never become a part of your vocabulary. You’re going to win.
Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. – 1 Timothy 6:12
