Turn The Page

Dearly Beloved,

People will come into your life. Some will come in as a blessing, others will come as lessons. Some will talk behind you and others will slander you. Thank the people who love and choose you despite your shortcomings. Say a big thank you to the people that walked in to your life and made it better. And thanks to the ones who walked out and made it amazing. Don’t worry about those who talk behind you either because they are behind for a reason. Everyone has a chapter that they don’t read out loud (2 Samuel 11:5-27). Be proud of your chapter. Be proud of the man or woman you have become because God is proud of you (Acts 13:22).

Irrespective of your current situation, stop living for what the world thinks of you but for what you think of yourself. Stop looking for people’s validation or approval and never start seeing yourself through the eyes of people who don’t value you. Know your worth even if they don’t. You don’t need everyone around you. You only need at least one friend who understands what you do not say. The people you need in your life are the ones who make an effort to stay and be there for you no matter how blessed your mess is.

Letting go doesn’t mean that you’re quitting. You are simply choosing yourself instead of continuing to try for someone who wouldn’t try for you.

Don’t stop caring for yourself and don’t stop caring for the ones you love, but if they decides to push you away, go, and be friends with yourself because no one is you and that is your power. Letting go doesn’t mean that you’re quitting. You are simply choosing yourself instead of continuing to try for someone who wouldn’t try for you.

Today, if you are in an abusive relationship, turn the page. If your relationship is not drawing you closer to God, turn the page. If your partner doesn’t see anything good in you, turn the page. If you have been lying to yourself just to keep that relationship, turn the page. If you do not have peace of mind in that relationship, turn the page. Turn the page because God’s blessings are without sorrow. Stop struggling to love and be loved. Stop crying your eyes to sleep, turn the page.

A day is coming when you will realise that there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on. That day is today!

A day is coming when you will realize that turning the page is the best feeling in the world. A day is coming when you will realize that saying yes to God and to yourself is the best answer in the world. A day is coming when those that looked down on you before now will begin to see the mighty hand of God upon you. A day is coming when no one can deny that God has been there for you. A day is coming when you will realize that there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on. That day is today! Be proud of your chapter and be bold to turn to a new page because things can ONLY get better.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.
