A person is awesome
The food is awesome
Your outfit is awesome
The movie is awesome
Your BFF is awesome
Your hard work is awesome
I’ll add another one to this list, without a doubt, YOU ARE AWESOME and I will tell you why.
A – You are Appointed by God. Right now, right in your circumstance, right in a world pandemic, and right in your current state, you are where you should be. It may not feel great all the time, the pain may be deep, the struggles are certainly real, and the unknown may feel daunting.
An encouraging thought despite overwhelming issues is that you are chosen and appointed to be here. God has entrusted you to be on planet earth for a reason.
Over the years I have struggled with my purpose. It’s hard to understand purpose when day to day routine is just that. I see women climbing the corporate ladder, and the ladder I am climbing is to clean dust off the ceiling fan!!!
The best remedy to refocus is to stop comparing ourselves with others and focus on the giftedness we have. Remember your purpose is unique to you. God trusts you and has appointed you to just be faithful each day.
Life gives new opportunities as well, so don’t lose hope. It could be just around the corner. It has for me and sometimes quite unexpected.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit…John 15:16
W – You are Worthy
One of the best advice I got as a single mom was that I was a person of Worth and need to be treated that way. I had to learn to believe that in my heart, to set boundaries to protect who I was, and understand how I was to be treated. It is not being selfish it is being smart.
For example, many people kept telling me to start dating as a single mom. It wasn’t time and I had to stand my ground. I was busy raising my two girls and wanted that as a priority. I was Worthy as a single person and it was right for those 12 years alone.
Take the time to find out how Worthy you were made by God and engage in some important decisions based on that. Be treated with respect and worth and you in turn can do the same for others.
Just because you are alone, doesn’t mean you are less of a person or you haven’t reached your potential. You are awesome just for who you are and so Worthy. These can be exciting days.
The Lord your God wins victory after victory and is always with you. He celebrates and sings
because of you, and he will refresh your life with his love. Zephaniah 3: 17
E – God is Eager to help you
God adores you. He thinks you are awesome and so Eager to assist you while on earth. He placed you here and won’t dessert you. If you are a child of God, he has Eternity taken care of for you too! Now that is AWESOME.
Believe in God’s Eagerness to help and don’t give up on your life situation and God. My aunt used to say to me, ‘You never know what is just around the corner’.
The Lord our God will lead the way. He will fight on our side, just as he did when we saw him do all those things to the Egyptians. Deuteronomy 1:30
You are Appointed, You are Worthy, and God is Eager to help you= AWEsome
You might be alone but remember…You are AWEsome and then SOME.
Until next time…. Alone and The Advocator
