Repeat after me: I AM POWERFUL!!! I AM POWERFUL!!!

Isaiah 40:29He gives power to the faint and to him who has no might he increases strength.

As I journey through life, I have to constantly remind myself that I am POWERFUL!! I take situations and make them work for me, even if they are designed to work against me.....I make them work FOR ME! How you ask??

My Aunt once said to me that everything that happens to you is for your good and for God's glory. This blessed me so much and gave me so much perspective.  

Take a moment and imagine that to be true. Everything that happens to you is for your good and for God's glory.

This statement is based on:

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.


John 11:40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”

As much as I don't want to be identified by certain things, they are a part of my life. Instead of waiting to be what I consider to be my best self, I found purpose in my broken self. I found power in my broken state. Too often many feel empowered when they have it all together, but there is something so special about moving in a broken state. It gives us the opportunity to see God perform true miracles. 

I never planned on being an overweight divorcee who's baby died shortly after birth. I didn't ask for this life.

Divorce: I wrote about it, learned from it, and empowered others along the way.

Losing Farah: I shared my journey and encouraged fellow Angel Mommies as God encourages me.

My weight: I found the most fly clothes for my size and found a passion for fashion that reaches beyond curvy women.

I could be embarrassed, depressed, lost, or even so focused on the future that I miss my opportunity in the present. 

God continues to use my brokenness for my good and for HIS GLORY!! 

Say it with me again...I AM POWERFUL!!!


I challenge you to find the most insecure area in your life right now and find a way to be empowered in this area. Discover a way to support others in this area. It doesn't have to be public. Find a private way to see God through it all! 

Here are five ways to locate POWER in your brokenness:

  1. Journal the journey
  2. Volunteer with organizations
  3. Locate a support group with others like you
  4. Get a counselor
  5. Pray!

2 Corinthians 12:9 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
