I’m posting up a video that I did on my channel a few months ago. I thought about this video this morning because of something someone said to me a while back. Someone told me that they felt I was ‘some type of person’ at the time when they said it, I didn’t say or think much about it, because I refuse to let people define me. But what I didn’t know was that the seed they planted started to grow an insecurity in me. I try my best to be aware of my short comings, so that when things happen I can recognize them. So I went to a few close friends and asked them, do you think I’m … I needed some honest feedback, I needed to know if I was just off about the person I thought I was. They all said no you are not, and gave me examples and reasons of why I wasn’t what that person said I was. That gave me a sigh of relief, these people had known me for 10 plus years, so they knew me. Also they all like to point out things that are wrong about me, but agreed this was not one of them. But I couldn’t shake this feeling and the words, and this morning it was eating at me, to the point to where I had to tell myself. ‘Look, you haven’t let anyone define you in the past, don’t let anyone start now. Remember what God says about you!’
You see our words matter, the little things we say to people, and then move on with our lives can stick with them. So what are you saying to those around you? I ask you, but I also ask myself this. When I speak, to those around me, am I speaking in Love? Are the words that I say uplift or put down? Am I breaking someone with my words?
I wanted to repost this video directly on FB because, I needed to hear it again, back then it was about something different, but the message, it is still the same. The reason I’m purposely not saying what I was labeled as, is because it doesn’t matter because that is not my label, and I will not pick it back up. I did for awhile, I carried it around like a pet and let it roll around in my brain to the point where I started to believe it, even after my friends told me it wasn’t true. What is rolling around in your brain that shouldn’t be? Put that label down and walk away. Remember what God says about you. ‘You are fearfully and wonderfully made.’ Now that’s a label we should proudly wear.
