Growing Pains

You never know what a person is going through… And the harmful effects and actions of people once close can hurt, but it doesn’t have to break you, nor does it define you.

Even the most well known Celebrities, Billionaires, Pastors, and even Jesus had people they once thought were friends turn against them. Family that weren’t for them, and many who didn’t understand their calling, gift, or purpose in life.

Your friendship and loyalty towards people aren’t always valued, acknowledged, or appreciated. And sadly, not every person is genuinely for you. Some actually have alternative motives to try and destroy you, manipulate, hurt, sabotage your name, and ultimately recruit others to turn against you.

10 Important Life Principals…

⚡️Don’t share your goals, personal problems, or dreams with everyone.

⚡️Don’t let anyone intimidate you, make you feel wrong for standing up for yourself, or rightfully defending your family and/or children.

⚡️Don’t let anyone ever pressure you.

⚡️Don’t compromise your biblical beliefs or standards.

⚡️ Don’t worry about the opinions of others.

✨Know your worth and who you are in Christ, regardless of others opinions.

✨ Know that if God be for you, then No one can stand against you.

✨Your Talents & Gifts Matter!!

✨Evil and Malicious agendas will eventually be exposed.

✨If you’re in an unsafe or uncomfortable situation… Leave!!!

🌳Remember those in your life that are true and rooted will always remain loyal.

🍂And those that are fragile and weak will fall off and go astray.

The Lord is developing you for your next chapter in your life, and not everyone is invited. Growth comes with growing pains that are Necessary for the building process. Don’t take it personal!

Pruning and Trimming are Necessary in order to get rid of any dead weight that will hold you back, weigh you down, or delay the process.

It’s All Necessary to Prepare the grounds for what’s coming ahead!!! Look up Dear Child of God… The Best Is Yet To Come!!!🙌🏽💫

Scripture Meditation…

✝️Matthew 5:43-48 NKJV

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…”

✝️ John 15:18-19 NKJV

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

✝️Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways Acknowledge Him, And He Shall direct your paths.

Stay Strong, Don’t Quit, Be Encouraged, & Fight That Good Fight of Faith!!! 🙏🏽❤️

Much Love Always,
