It’s okay to be tired.
It’s okay to ask yourself , how in the world did I let this happen?
It’s okay to not have all the answers.
It’s okay to be scared.
You know what’s not okay? Letting someone mistreat you.
Love doesn’t neglect you.
Love doesn’t make you feel less than.
Love doesn’t silence you.
Love is suppose to grow you, not kill you slowly.
You may think you’re in love but you’re dying on the inside. That man hasn’t hugged you or held you in forever. You think sex is love so you stay.
“ well he does come from a broken home”
“He’s had a bad past”
“ he doesn’t know how to love”
“He doesn’t have anybody”
The excuses we make. The denial. We deny our whole being as women in hopes of making someone else happy.
You know the saying, women aren’t rehabilitation centers from broken men.
Silent treatments. Stonewalling. Telling you to STFU. Calling you stupid. Throwing your imperfections in your face. Comparing you with other women. Flirting with other women. Abusing you in such a subtle way that you’re paranoid and so out of touch with yourself that you’re the one that’s made out to look unstable.
How did we get here? How did I get here?
Boundaries . Standard. We had none.
we don’t lower our standards to make someone else comfortable. We set standards and allow people to rise up to them.
Jesus never died for his daughters to be mistreated. Jesus died for you to know that he SEES YOU. Jesus died for you to be free.
So many of us have never been loved well. We are dying to be wrapped up in a man’s arms that we are willing to lay in bed with the devil just to feel some type of warmth.
We all tell each other , KNOW YOUR WORTH GIRL! But let’s be real here. No one deserves to be abused , whether you know your worth or not.
For every woman being gaslighted.
For every woman that’s experiencing cognitive dissonance.
For every woman saying “ how did I let this happen to me , I knew better”.
For every woman blaming herself for a man’s actions.
For every woman that feels like she’s not enough because he doesn’t know how to love.
IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S HIM.
You are me and I am you.
Im still standing by the grace of God and God alone .
You know that scripture about everything else fading away but the Word Of God standing forever? THAT IS A FACT!
The Word of God has brought me above water when I was drowning. The Word is like CPR. Any time I have a panic attack or anxiety starts to cripple me I go to THE WORD. Even if it’s one scripture, one song, one word from God , take that AND HOLD ON TO IT!
The devil is a liar and YOU WILL SURVIVE AND THRIVE. See, I wish I could say that it’s not going to hurt and that you’re Going to be okay as soon as you give it to God, but to be real , you might have to go through a process.
The Lord may be trying to reveal something to you. The Lord may want you to obey him in some area. Pain has ALWAYS brought me to the only one that can comfort me.
It’s easy to go and seek peace and healing in your abuser, but we know it’s temporary. The love bombing is temporary . It’s all temporary. The monster will come out sooner or later.
For every woman suffering,
For every woman that feels stuck,
I SEE YOU AND IM PRAYING FOR YOU !!
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD AND I HAVE EVERYTHING THAT I NEED!! What the enemy meant for evil the Lord will use for his glory !!
You can never be too far gone for the Lord! That’s why I love Jesus !!! The world may fail, people may fail us, BUT GOD NEVER WILL.
Believe again, even if it’s as small as a mustard seed. HOPE AGAIN, even if it’s a tad . That’s all you need .
You are needed in this world! Don’t give up.
YOU GOT THIS!
Philippians 4:13 🙌🙏💕
