Your Life Is Yours 

Beloved of God,

Never forget that there is an evil day (Ephesians 6:13) for the child of God. There is an evil day when things seem to go wrong. When that day comes, when something bad happens, you have three choices: You can either let it define you, destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

In your day of trouble or during your trial period, don’t explain yourself and tell people everything that has gone wrong. Don’t narrate your own version of the story. Don’t try to explain how it wasn’t your fault. Don’t try to show people that you are a good person. You owe no one any explanation of what you do. You owe no one any explanation of what actually happened because no one will truly understand. You owe no one nothing. Your life is yours not theirs.

If your trouble or situation has something to do with your relationship, you must realise that at your absolute best, you still won’t be good for the wrong person. At your worst you will still be worth it to the right person. So go ahead and do your own things. Don’t let your world revolve around someone else’s. Be kind to yourself! You are not what happened to you but how you overcome it.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.
