Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through him who strengthens me…”
It was in 2002, we sang this song; I believe I can Fly by R. Kelly – at our valedictory. Everybody sang with so much authority. We indeed believed we could fly, as we ended off our school career. Throughout my student years, the lyrics was close to my heart. I can honestly ratify it has been my navigator on my stair case.
I trusted myself knowing God will bless me and uphold His promise, as my plans was written in His hand palm even before I was born. Join me on this journey as I take you through how I kept believing in God … In order to Fly…
“I was on the verge on breaking down”. I use to think every step I made, was a mistake. I always second guessed myself with every decision I needed to make. As a young girl I was naïve and foolish and made some wrong choices – I am not ashamed to say this. This is Real Talk!
Many times it was hard for me to believe in myself. I use to develop negative feelings for everything. In my mind I always formulated this idea that I have nothing to offer. The worst was when I believed I was unworthy of things.
I want to plea today for all ladies, don’t ever be a victim of your wrong choices. Don’t ever feel you are unworthy of things. Don’t ever second guess your choices…. For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper and not to harm… Make this the prayer of your heart. And I know of a Man who died for all your wrong choices. So you don’t have to crucify yourself. Your wrong choices have already been paid for! Just turn your eyes to the hills, find and thank Him. “But now I know the meaning of true love, I’m leaning on the everlasting arm…”
“If I can see it then I can be it” … Do some self-introspection, do some stock taking of your life. All the things you have already accomplished. Reminisce over your life. See the positive in every negative, let them balance each other out. For every setback there is always a major comeback.! This is the only way you will see how far you have come, even better how you have grown!
“There are miracles in life you must achieve, but it all starts inside of me” … “If I can see it, then I can be…. If I just believe it…. I BELIEVE I CAN FLY!!! “
