Wounds that empower…

Sometimes life hurts.
Seasons of sadness are inevitable.
Sometimes your heart becomes wounded to the point where it feels like it can beat no more.
Nevertheless, it keeps beating desipite your your circumstance.
In that moment, the steady beat is given to you as a reminder that life and resilience exist within you.
The beating of this inner drum is a call to rise up an fight.
You were not meant to live a life of defeat.
You were created to rise above every person, situation, and obstacle that rises against you.
You are more than a conqueror.
You were created in the image of the living God.
Stand up and claim that what is rightfully yours.
May the enemy regret the day that you were born.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord ’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.
Isaiah 61:1‭-‬3 NLT
