September 18, 2019 At the crossroads of strength and determination. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. When someone is empowered they will use their power to do what they feel they are able to do. Knowing that you can direct your intentions to choose the reality you want to experience is a game changer. However, as we know life does not follow a straight and orderly(much less expected) path. So, what do you do when a traumatic event turns your life upside-down? Well, you can stew in misery for awhile feeling stuck in your circumstances-OR- you can choose to overcome them. This becomes possible when you are told that you can overcome them! Indeed, for a time I felt powerless as if I was aimlessly drifting along on the waves of time. But then someone much more enlightened than I, told me that I had the power to break free from such circumstances. Lately I have been meditating on these truths. With each passing day that I do, it becomes clearer and clearer that I have an exciting future. No longer am I fearful that I will have a life lived inside a small box, but rather I can see the possibilities. And. Let.Me.Tell.You. It is exciting! The massive stroke did not kill me, it did not steal my humor, lessen my intelligence, or revoke my creativity. In fact, in the oddest(and sometimes worst) way possible this major setback has become my setup. Therefore, I have learned that I am an overcomer. And just in case you’ve been misinformed… SO. ARE. YOU.
