I can’t even begin to remember what life was like before you. For as long as I can remember you’ve held my hand, gave me advice, and told me how far I can go. I remember those times when I had so much to say but you demanded me to stay silent. I remember those times when I wanted to believe in myself but there you were telling me over and over again that I wasn’t smart enough, pretty enough, or even loved enough. How can I forget those secret moments that we shared. Those moments when your voice overpowered the voice of God so much so that I felt hopelessly stuck. Those moments when God showed me my potential but you shouted so loudly not to believe Him. Or those moments when God would fill my heart with so many dreams and aspirations but there you were telling me that I didn’t have what it takes.
Even when I dared to believe that I could overcome you, there you were reminding me over and over again that we were more than just acquaintances, we were best friends!
You made sure to remind me that we’ve been holding hands for so long that it would be impossible for me to let go of you without a fight. You made sure to remind me over and over again that you were assigned to me by the powers of darkness to stop me. To keep me from going forward. To keep God from getting the glory out of my life. To keep those I’m assigned to in bondage.
You didn’t hesitate to remind me every single day of how powerful you are.
But today I’m writing you this letter to let you know that I’ve met someone more powerful than you! I’ve met someone who holds my hand, and tells me that I’m His. I’ve met someone who promised me that He’ll never leave me or forsake me. The one who reminds me daily to be strong and courageous. The same one who held Peter’s hand as he walked on the water. The same one who made demons bow, and storms stand still. The same one who crushed you on the cross and commanded you to bow!
Because of Him I no longer have to submit to you. I no longer have to listen to you. I no longer have to believe your lies because I’ve come face to face with the truth.
I AM GOOD ENOUGH
I AM LOVED ENOUGH
I AM PRETTY ENOUGH
I AM SMART ENOUGH
I AM NOT WHO I USED TO BE
I DO HAVE WHAT IT TAKES
I AM MAKING A DIFFERENCE
I AM MAKING AN IMPACT
I AM AN OVERCOMER
I AM STRONG
I AM COURAGEOUS
Today, I’m writing you this letter to BOLDLY declare that I no longer believe you and I no longer agree with you! My belief is in Jesus. My agreement is with Jesus.
Today, I CONFIDENTLY declare that I’ve OVERCOME you!
