Please know...

I wake up so angry.  I am mad.  I am infuriated.  I am heartbroken.

I want to hold your face in my hands, look you into the eyes, and tell you something you need to know.  I don't want to tell you something sweet and encouraging, because "that's how she is" or "that's just what she does." No.

I want you to open your yes.  
The veil to be lifted. 
The lies to be exposed.  
The fog to fade.  
The truth to be known.  
By you.

I want you to know that what I am about to say is true, attainable, nonfiction, not only a possibility--but a reality to be had.  I want you to know this message is for you.

I want you to know this deep within your soul. Imprint it on your heart. Never forget it. 

Don't let the negative thoughts,
words of others,
mistakes of your past,
the situation you are in,
the trials you face,
or the lies of the enemy
to rob you of this truth.

You ready for it?

You are loved.
Yes, you!

You do not need a man to love you to feel and be loved.
The best behaved children to determine your worth and value.
The perfect marriage to feel constant adoration.
The validation of those around you to feel valued and affirmed.
To constantly act a certain way to get people to like you.
A certain number of followers on Twitter to feel heard.

Please understand the sincere and passionate truth in these statements:

You are treasured.
You are loved.
You are pursued.
You are worth more than you will ever know.

Please stop accepting defeat, pain, and a life without hope and peace as the norm.

Please stop letting the mistakes and failures of your past keep you from the truth that you are a princess to the King of Kings.

Please stop settling for less than when there is so much greatness ahead of you.

Please stop wallowing in the victim of life's circumstances puddle and rise up to the royal position you are called.

There is so much more for you, baby girl.
You are destined for greatness.
Step into it.

You are more than you think you are.
God is closer than you think He is.

I love you.


  1. Thank you! So needed this morning!

  2. Wow. I didn't even know I needed to hear that until I read it!

  3. thank you...I needed this, and if feels good to know that I am not the only one!

  4. I just want you to know I read this and I think this is for me, Just me. No one else.

    I have read it five or six times over and over and just cried.

    I love you just as much as you love me.

    Don't you ever forget it.

  5. Just needed the reminder today. LOUD.

    Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into some serious goodness.

    Also wanted to extend an invite ... to share this post (or another fave) to encourage even more moms. We could use it.

    you girls are wonderful and give a long up people hope, and put their faith where it needs to be.

    Keep up the amazing writing!

  9. Yes! Those are truths we all need to hear. And believe. They are the ones that will keep us going when we're tempted to believe the lies of the world that we are NOT treasured or loved or worth anything.

    Beautifully told. Thank you.

  10. So good. A message everyone needs to hear every morning.

  11. I'm in love with this. Something I needed to hear!


    Found you on Grab A Friend Blog Hop & following your links!

  12. What a great read. Thank you! Found you through Grab A Friend; happy hopping!!


  13. Thank you Falen!!!! I understand completely & I truly did not know this was inspired by me. Its beautiful & down to the bone truth. I will not allow my fears & pain get in the way of what is yet best to come. I am a fighter and will come out of this hole of despair. Words can not express how you made me feel. I love you with all of my heart!! Like I said... I wish I had at least 48 hours with you so could understand the battle & tribulations I have faced & facing. Its like does it ever get any better but I myself have to stop thinking this way and know it will be okay. I have two beautiful blessings that I never thought I could have. When all doctors said it wasn't possible for me to have children, I showed them!! And I will not settle for nothing more then what I have settled for. I love you all the way to avatar world & back. ;)
