Start Living Again

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you. You that takes pleasure in creating problems that doesn’t exist in your head. You that’s over thinking about things that will never happen. You that wanted them to chase after you when you left. You that’s wishing they don’t be in love with someone else. You that’s hoping that perhaps you’ll meet them again when you both are better for each other.

The world is not really against you, the only thing that’s against you is yourself. Don’t become your own worst enemy. Don’t abuse a kind heart. You may never be offered one again. Stop taking today and this moment for granted assuming that there would be a thousand more. There is no situation before you that’s too difficult for God to handle.

David said in Psalms 138:7-8, “Through your mighty power I can walk through any devastation, and you will keep me alive, reviving me. Your power set me free from the hatred of my enemies. 8 You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me! Since your love for me is so constant and endless, I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me!” (Psalms:The Passion Translation)

Everyone’s recovery journey is different. Don’t be a victim of comparison. God is keeping every promise that He has ever made to you and He will finish all that He has started in you. Stop walking around with an arrow in your chest. You’ll never get healed that way even if you think you’re functioning just fine. Until tomorrow, learn to walk over things that you used to trip over. Fall in love with as many things as possible. Do what you love, love what you do because it’s time for you to start living again.

Be blessed!

In Him,
~Ali Papa.

His Power Is Sufficient

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you. You that didn’t know what love felt like until you met them, but now you know what a broken heart feels like. You that’s feeling that you can’t love anyone else because your heart still belongs to the one who broke it. You that nobody can see your broken heart because it’s like having broken ribs but the pain is unbearable every time you breathe.

Leave Behind Your Excuses

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that was doing just fine before you met him or her. You that gave everything but still wasn’t enough. You that’s about to lose your mind because everything is confusing. I want you to know that things will get better. They will! Stop getting your hopes up about them. Stop thinking about them because they are not thinking about you. The truth is, you should never have to chase what’s meant for you. Don’t lose yourself trying to love someone. It’s better to be alone than to be with someone who can’t see who you are.

God Is In The Midst Of Your Pain

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, my dear, you that can’t stop loving the wrong person. You that have been weak and helpless before stumbling on this letter. You that’s trying to learn how to be strong and resilient. You that’s trying to learn how to fight for your voice and stand up for yourself. You that’s learning how to survive in this wicked world. You that’s learning how to live alone when all you ever needed was a hand to hold on to.

Hang In There

Dear Someone, anyone, somewhere,

I am writing you this letter and wishing you well. When you don’t understand the situation you are in, choose to praise God. When you don’t understand what’s going on in your marriage or relationship, choose to trust Him. When you don’t understand why your condition has refused to change, choose to love Him irrespective of time and circumstance, independent of situation, whether or not you understand it. His renewed mercies are still new every morning and they will continue to keep you in perfect peace. Today will not be an exception for you. Every need shall be supplied, and nothing shall be denied.
