Who do you think you are? You’ve taken one step forward, but you’ve stumbled two steps backward.
You’ve thrived, and you’ve failed.
You’ve progressed, and you’ve regressed.
You’ve transcended, and you’ve descended.
Thoughts of hopelessness & worthlessness have probably entered your mind.
“I’ve tried”, you say.
“I am nothing”, you moan.
We have all been there…but stop right there.🛑
In our individual and collective journey through life, we must never sabotage ourselves with words of defeat, even if we feel defeated.
We must never assault ourselves with shame, even if we feel ashamed.
Everytime we get knocked down, we MUST get back up again.
⭐When I am knocked down, I do everything I can to not only get up, but to get up and push harder.
I’ve learned to be grateful for the backward steps. They sharpen me and keep me focused.
🏹Like a bow & arrow, they launch me forward with double the power, double the determination and double the conviction.
I used to think that I could do all of that on my own. But I now realize that my strength comes from The One who created me.
So, the question is not “who do you think you are?” It is “WHOSE do you know you are?”
👉🏽You are a MAGNIFICENT, RESILIENT and BLESSED child of the Almighty God.
THAT is who you are.
