I ran across this on Pinterest the other day, whomever put this little gem together was speaking my language 🙂
Morning all! I goto church by myself all the time. I started going while bartending and drinking long hours into the night,but made sure to get up and goto church Sunday mornings-tired and all,I felt like I needed him most at this time for my spiritual covering in the nightlife. Going back to the church I grew up in was intimidating at first because I havent been there in so long and knowing that i was one of few women my age to actually attend regularly. So it was a bit discouraging. However, I kept in my mind that I wouldn’t let those feelings keep me away from Gods house and the Word. Now 2 years later my church family is growing I know a lot of the older folks as well as the babies ☺, I’m telling this story only because it hits home and maybe there’s aomeone out there that may allow fear of not fitting in or being judged keep them from going to church -heres some motivation!
What is fear? Why am I afraid to let my light shine? I have so many gifts that God has given me yet am just beginning to notice them,we’ll they have always been here but… to tap into them. I have the heart to take on the world but I chose to sit on the sideline with the normals . Dwelling with the sidelines as if tomorrow is set up to come slower. It was that bitch confidence all this damn time-fear vs confidence- two words I allowed to rule my thoughts. No more! Thank you fear for instilling humbleness but I have started a new relationship with confidence, she has allowed me to realize that no one will believed in me unless I believe in me.
Thank you confidence! For allowing me to wake up from that bad dream
It isn’t a crime to shine, just love God, be humble, and treat your neighbors better that you expect to be treated. That’s life ,lets live!
Hi, My name is Tonisha. A (late) twenty something year old lover of Jesus. I have learned a lot of lessons along the way,still learning. Coming into the woman God created me to be takes improvement, coming to this realization awhile back i now see that I am changing everyday, and i would like to bring people on my journey.
