“Excuses sound the best to the one that is making them up.”
One of the greatest lies you could ever tell yourself is the one laden with excuses. The lame excuse, which seems mighty only in the mind of the one giving it, unnecessarily binds the precious lives of a countless many. They sit in a prison of their own design, unwilling to acknowledge that they hold the keys to their freedom.
There is a path where passions lay, where victory is known and dreams are realized. It must be chosen. One cannot hold onto excuses and expect miracles. The one will cancel out the other.
Choose. Choose now. That power is always yours. If you would only open your real eyes and see all the beauty Divinely laid out before you, you would lay down your excuses, challenge your doubts and rise in your faith.
Your excuses deceive you. Let them go.
Choose what your heart has always known, but which you’ve been too afraid to believe.
Choose to believe.
I joyfully challenge you to believe.
A Chinese Proverb states that “women hold up half the sky.” What a beautiful and true statement.
Ladies, today we celebrate you! (though one day is not nearly enough!) You are the queens and princesses of this world in all your various roles. You are the crowning glory of God’s creation. You are pure power and beauty, grace and wisdom and this world desperately needs you to shine.
There is a great awakening, an unfolding throughout the planet that is finally embracing the splendor of how you are Divinely designed to be. This is your moment. Dance in your essence, release your unique melodies into the chorus, speak boldly from your precious heart, let the earth feel your mighty roar!
Be you. Fully you. As Melissa Etheridge says, “you are more powerful than you know; you are beautiful just as you are.”
King Solomon once said that you are far more valuable than diamonds! (Proverbs 31:10)
Your value is immeasurable!
Ladies, thank you for all that you do and all that you give. You are loved. You are needed. You are cherished. You are wanted.
Happy International Woman’s Day.
