I AM WHO I AM…

You think you’re better than other people. You’re self-righteous. You’re holier than thou. Just because you go to church doesn’t mean you’re better than me. Or when they begin to attack on a more personal basis…she thinks she’s all that! Or my favorite…she thinks she’s cute!”

These are words that have been spoken to me over the years. Words that stung. Words spoken in anger. Words that made me feel rejected. Words that made me afraid to stand out from the crowd. Words that made me dim my light and shrink to the background. Words that made me afraid to be me and walk confidently in who God created me to be.

In 42 days, I will be 40 years old! Yes, that deserves a round of applause! Thank you! As I get ready to enter into a new decade, I have been reflecting on some things. One thing I know is that life is too short to be concerned about what people think of me. So, I’ve decided that enough is enough! I AM WHO I AM! And I’m okay with who I am.

I don’t think I’m better than anyone else and whoever thinks that obviously doesn’t know me. I’m not holier than thou. Truth is…I’m trying to get it right every day just like everyone else. Just in case you’re wondering…let me tell you who I am!

I AM BEAUTIFUL

I AM POWERFUL

I AM LOVED

I AM HARMONIOUS

I AM COMPASSIONATE

I AM BLESSED

I AM WISE

I AM FORGIVEN

I AM GRATEFUL

I AM HAPPY

I AM LIGHT

I AM FREE

I AM ME

I AM HIS WARRIOR PRINCESS

I AM WHO I AM…
