Don’t you hate being known as “that person”?
“That person”, the one who loses it at the end of the day in tears. “That person”, the one who loses it because of someone else’s actions. “That person”, the one who everyone is waiting to see when the fuse will be lit. “That person”, the one who they expect some kind of reaction from. “That person”, who collapses due to insecurities and weakness.
What if I could be known as “that person” who is known for the positive instead of the negative?
“That person”, who overcomes the day. “That person”, who rises above the challenging person. “That person”, who doesn’t accept defeat but accepts victory through grace, kindness and love in response. “That person” who smiles in the face difficulty.
I so desire to be “that person” who exemplifies Christ’s grace, mercy, love, kindness, and forgiveness. I also desire to be “that person” who exemplifies Christ’s strength in me where I do not fall apart and I do not crumble in my own insecurities. The only way I can truly be victorious is through Him so I can become “that person” who He has created me to be, not who I have created, in and through Christ, His strength will be seen.
Look for me, I am going to become “that person.”

My motto is “Choose Joy” even though I do mourn, weep and cry I still try to fall on the choice of joy. Sometimes I think I comment too much on things or “like” too many things on social media but my goodness why not?! Life truly is bombarded with so much junk, negativity, and just too many bad days so why not be the encourager in this world? Where there is Jesus, there is joy! Don’t post things to show perfection in your life (which there isn’t) but post to show the beauty, grace and joy which your God has given you. God has equipped you to be the cheerleader in your life and in others! 💛☀️ Have a great day!
In our weakness He is strong and in our strength He is even stronger. ❤️
“Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity”-Weil As we are caught up in life with all of our daily activities and work, it is so good to remember to be still, listen, and respond. Remembering to take the … Continue reading
