You Are Not Alone In Living By Faith

Dear Someone,

If I were in your shoes, you that wanted love so badly, but couldn’t tell it wasn’t love that you have, I’d go straight to God, I’d throw myself on the mercy of God.

If I were in your shoes, you that is struggling to get started, you that have the itch about starting your own thing, I’d go straight to God, I’d throw myself on the mercy of God.

If I were in your shoes, you that from the first day you met them, they have become your most toxic addiction, I’d go straight to God, I’d throw myself on the mercy of God.

Life Is Not A Straight Line

Dear Someone,

I don’t know who this is for, but understand me well as I type these words.

Your current challenges are not there to kill you but to build you up. They are not there to stay but to pass. Your current challenges are not the most difficult thing you’ve ever had to face — acknowledge them but do not live in them. Your mistakes are your own mentorship, they are part of your story — they are not who you are.

Irrespective of the turns and detours in your relationship, stop wondering and asking if they ever really loved you. Irrespective of the detours that life has thrown at you, understand that where you are right now is where you’re supposed to be. Understand that “Sometimes, your ‘Plan B’ is really God’s ‘Plan A’. And your “detours” are all a part of His plan for your life.”- Dr Sorke.

Be Proud Of The Person You Are Becoming

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind and emotions because of their actions and words.

I know this might sound strange to you at first, and possibly for a long time to come but as someone who once suffered from depression and overcame it, I want you to understand that the inaccurate version of you that people have created in their mind is not your responsibility just as the version of yourself that you have created in your own mind is not others’ responsibility.

The way people treat you, the names they call and labelled you with, the horrible things and lies they say about you, are all a reflection and a statement of who they are as a human being and not a true representation of who you are in the eyes of your creator.

Don’t Be So Down On Yourself

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s been judged by people who only know your name and not your story. You that’s been judged by people you don’t even know simply because of your last name and for things that your family members have done way before you were born or thought of. You that have always been judged by people for just one mistake you’ve accidentally done. This letter is for you, you that have been judged by people you care about, ignored by those who said they’d never leave and hurt by the ones you love the most.

You’re Not Your Past!

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s stuck in one way, shape, or form with an ex or somebody or something from your past. You that is hiding from an ex forgetting that they are in your past, not your future. You that is hurting from having someone in your heart, but can’t have them in your arms. This letter is for you, you that is depressed because you are living in the past.

You Deserve The Love You Keep Trying To Give

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is being ignored because you don’t fit in. You that’s being ignored because of something you know nothing about, you that is being ignored because you don’t know anyone and have no one to help. This letter is for you, you that have been ignored as if you were dead, as if you were a broken pot and you that’s tired of putting up with being ignored or shunned, spat at, and berated by those you once called your own or someone who means the world to you. If you think you would be the most popular in the universe if being ignored meant so, then this letter is for you.
