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.

Forgive Yourself And Begin Again

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is looking back at your life in regret instead of looking forward. You that is looking back at your life and can’t identify the person that you have become. You that is looking back at your life and realizing that in a quest of making everyone around happy, you have lost yourself. For everyone that’s looking back at their lives and seeing a series of mistakes and sins, for everyone that’s looking back at 2019 and thinking that 2020 will just get worse up the same, this letter is for you. I don’t know if you are a follower, but I am glad you stumbled on this letter. It’s also a letter for me, to realize how much I have done and what I have become.

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.

God Will Make A Way 

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s tired and sort of emptied out. You that tomorrow could be the someday you’ve been waiting for. You that want answers but you’re afraid to ask. You that have seen people say to you, “I’m here for you” and then run away as soon as things start to fall apart. You that there were moments you think you won’t survive and then you survived. You that is allowing your fears to decide your future. I want you to know that whatever it is that you are going through today, they all have an expiry date.

Stop Breaking Your Heart 

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is lonely at heart. You that is emotionally drained and messed up. You that found yourself saying, “I was foolish. I was lying to myself.” You that no longer know if you wish to drown yourself in love, vodka or the sea. You that have witnessed things that have changed you forever. This letter is for you, you that have lost your mind trying to understand the one that said they love you.

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.
