1 John5:14 — And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: (KJV)
Your confidence is uncomfortable for some people. But most people don’t know the journey that has brought you to be free in who you are and in your actions. There are lots of unsettling things I’ve been through but I’ve learned to grow and come to terms and peace with those areas of my life where I felt less than, or diminished. But people will always be around to jab at that confidence and peace. Don’t let them.
I hear the snarky or underlying tone, every time. Do I feed it, most of the time no. Do I allow it to second guess who I am and what my end game and goals are, not a bit. But it shows me who you are and how minimal you are to my life. So thanks for showing me that my tight tribe and inner circle is beast and that I am moving away from the toxic and towards those who build up and are worth the value I contribute to the greatness of others. God made us to great and to flourish. Don’t let those that don’t get it, get to you.#lifeisgood #sisterhood

Pray this prayer with me:
Most Precious Lord Jesus, Gentle And Wonderful God, Truly Awesome And Ever-present Holy Spirit, Precious Lord Jesus, I love you.
I was blind but you did not desert me.
I was blind and you gently led me in ways I did not know.
I was blind and you led me on unfamiliar paths.
I was blind and you turned my darkness into light.
I was blind and you made the rough places smooth.
I was blind and now I see.
Lead me on, precious Lord, and help me reform and conform my actions to your will.
Give me insight and awareness of the deceptive words and deceptive idols around me.
In my world gone astray, help me reflect your love and grace.
Help me deal with others in a kind, gentle, and just manner.
Place your power upon me and put into my heart the holy unction to help the alien, to help the fatherless, to the help the widow, to comfort the hurting, and to shelter the lost and broken.
May all my thoughts and actions reflect your love for generations into the future.
Inspire me every day to trust you more.
Inspire me every day to put my full faith and confidence into your nail-scarred hands.
Remind me often how you have blessed me.
Remind me how you have nourished me and quenched the thirst of my soul with your living water.
Remind me how you have kept me from the heat of the sun and from the cold of winter.
Remind me I have no worries even when my life seems dry and parched.
Remind me you will help me miraculously bear fruit in season or out of season.
May I always be strong and humble as I help you gather your flock in your holy name.
All these things I humbly pray in the name of my most Blessed Lord Jesus Christ, my Mighty God, and my Ever-present Holy Spirit upon whom I can rely.
