The words cut like a knife. My whole world went into a tailspin. The what if’s controlled my thoughts and my every moment. There was nothing I could do. I couldn’t heal it or fix it. I couldn’t put it back together. It was there in all it’s ugly messy glory.

I had one choice and it was time to choose. I could stay down and out or I could fight.

It took a ton of looking inside and finding exactly what made me tick.

I had to shut off what I thought people needed me to do, and actually do what God had called me to do!

Whether it’s a diagnosis, a death, a failure, we all have something that has completely broken us. Something that has twisted our hearts so hard we are brought to our knees. It’s raw it’s real. Nothing can turn it off. Time can’t go back. So now what?

I am here to tell you God saw your pain and he needs you. He needs you to stand up and dust yourself off. That pain and misery can be turned into life changing glory. You can walk taller, have a stronger love, change lives.

You can have all the blessings you want and more than you can ever imagine.

There are people who need to see you walk through the fire and bloom. It’s in those moments that you find a whole new you that is bigger, better and more aligned with your calling than you could ever imagine.

Don’t live in the fear anymore. You are born for so much more. Let’s grow together!
