Don’t let it sink in…..

Don’t ever let the words of others keep you from being who you were created to be. Don’t take it personally when their words sting and you feel like a failure. Don’t let their words sink into your innermost being.

Instead, rise up and know that you are worth so much more than the words that were spoken over you. Know that you have value. Know that you have gifts, skills, talents and strengths that are desperately needed in this world. Know that YOU can make a difference and that God wants to use you in some mighty ways!

Remember, many times when people speak harsh words, it’s more about them than it is about you. Their frustrations, confusion, questions, insecurity,  hurt, anger, etc. Don’t let them stop you from running the good race that you are running! Keep going strong! Don’t back down! Be the YOU that you are meant to be! You Got This!
