You Are Important; You Still Matter!

~You might not be as independent as you’d want to be or where you’d want to be right now, but you don’t have to settle, be a doormat or let anyone push you around. You are still important; you matter as an individual; just by being alive! ~ Accomplishments does not entitle you to respect, approval, or acceptance by others. You already are, just by existing! You can speak up/ stand up for yourself; you can say NO without feeling guilty or worry about what others think or how they’ll feel. You don’t have to be fearful. God has your back, and He knows your heart. Say no/ walk away even if it makes people angry, especially if their intentions aren’t good/ pure, but for selfish reasons and their pleasures or convenience. You’re not a pushover! You don’t have to fear what man can do to you or concerning you- Psalm 118:6. You don’t have to be controlled by expectations or the pressures of society. You’ll be able to discern the difference between doing what frees your soul or what pressures you to feel or be obligated to…

You are valuable regardless of your dry and empty seasons; If you’ve hit rock bottom. You are valuable and worthy because you matter to Jesus! He thinks the world of you; he approves of you even when you are empty: your account is dry, you sleep under a bridge, you shack up with people, family member or a friend because you can’t afford a place of your own. Even if you don’t have a degree, a diploma, you can’t construct a sentence without 5 tries. Materials do not define you! A good education or high paying job does not either. Jesus accepts and loves you like crazy when you are with, and when you are without. It’s his love for us that defines us! You still matter! Your thoughts, goals, desires, wants, needs, dreams, hopes, and life are still very much important to him! See yourself through his eyes!

If everyone in the world had no job, no car, no house and we all lived in one house, eating from one hand, how would that make you feel? You’d fit right in, right? You wouldn’t feel inferior, because everyone would be on the same level. Well, the truth is, we are all being fed by one hand! I view the world as being under a dome, that means we all live under one roof, and God is our provider. The ones that “have,” achieved nothing without God’s approval. Unfortunately, some become successful through unjust ways. But overall, no one has anything without it passing through God’s knowledge -1Chron 29:14; Rom 13:1. It’s like a business/hotel; everything that’s needed has to go through the manager/CEO of that company. Documents that needs signatures, shipments that needs approval, monies going out has to be accounted for. The owner is aware of whatever goes on in his/ her company!

You are already a success by breathing! God has a plan for your life, and He promises that it’s good and prosperous; He promises to give you a future and a hope -Jer 29:11. So whatever situation you are in right now, you can hold your head up, you can still be joyful-laugh, smile; you can be confident and bold in Him because He is still working on, in and through you. You too will be fruitful. It just might not be your turn to bloom, glorifying God through works in the eyes of men just yet, but He is doing a hidden work in you. You are a precious soul, defined by Him and what He says and thinks about you. Wherever you are right now, keep seeking His face, His desires, His presence, and His purpose for your life. We are all created to worship and praise God, but we are each assigned a specific job to do for Him that involves building up or edifying each other, and bring glory to His name.

Hello, my name is Stephanie! It is my desire for souls to know Jesus personally; To be freed, uplifted, affirmed, and healed through our Savior. Know that you are loved so much! You have so much worth! You ’belong’ even if the world rejects and sees you as nothing! Despite what people around you, or even what your thoughts say about who you are, Jesus's truth is all that matters, and you are precious to him! Here is a bit of my story! I've been oppressed and ’held captive’ in my own mind for many years! I've struggled with depression for over 10 years. I had low self-esteem, not knowing my own worth. I chased after love, affirmation, attention, and a need to feel wanted- in relationships, to finding fulfillment in things. I didn't know how to love myself or how to receive love! I was sad most of the time to the point where I contemplated suicide twice. Deep inside, I felt a little girl full of joy, harmony, and peace who wanted freedom, and to live a fulfilled life; she was trapped inside. In late 2014 Jesus literally called out to me... and told me I would be okay. I committed my life to him in 2016. Since then, so much has happened! I've been finding shelter under his wings, and my mind is continually being renewed by his truth spoken to and about me. I have found and is still amazed by his perfect, unconditional love for me that follows me daily. I have found a secured relationship that attends to every area of my life. My journey started out rough, but it is BEAUTIFUL! It gets rocky and uncomfortable at times, but it is one filled with lessons, wonder, and crazy peace! It's apart of our walk. I am still healing (I view it as a life long process) some days I take a step forward only to take two backward but I now know to not depend on my strength even during healing as I am never alone. There are also many that I am unlearning and detoxing from my spirit that I grew up learning about. I have opened myself to allowing God to use me as I am, as an outlet to reach his precious ones. The purpose of my blog is to encourage a sincere and intentional relationship with Jesus! To help strengthen our faith and walk in him. To heal, uplift, and remind women of who God says we are. To walk in his identity- in hopes that you will know without a doubt that you matter much more than you can understand! I openly share my testimonies and personal experiences. I mean, it's a bit easier to speak and share from experiences. I firmly believe you will be blessed! Find yourself, find your path, and embark on this beautiful journey of life resting in God. Love, it's perfectly okay to be authentic- about where you are in every area of your life- in a world that forces us to mask our emotions and ’put the best forward, so people can ”see and think” we’ve got it all together.’ It's okay to NOT have it all together. Be true to yourself; this is an important step in being completely honest with our Lord.
