We all have our bad days, days we are not feeling quite our positive self. Yesterday was one of those days for me. For some reason I was looking at the struggle, my mind began to speak negatively about everything I am working on. All of sudden, how and can’t  became my thoughts.  I began to feel anxious, and doubtful. When I get fearful, I like to look in the mirror to remind myself who I am. I am made in God’s image.  How can I lose? We are born winners.

Ephesian 5: 13-17

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Whenever you begin to feel discourage and hopelessness rears it’s sneaky head. Take a look in a mirror, and say “I am a child of God. Shining is what I do.

Embrace,Love, Live
