We never know how strong we are until being strong is all we can be.This thing called life here on earth can sometimes knock you down and you feel like there’s no way to get up. Well, I know different now after being in that place one time too many. I was knocked down when my ex-husband committed suicide out of no where leaving me with two Queens to raise alone. I was knocked down when I gave my heart to a married man thinking he would one day make me his wife and give me that life of happiness I so much desired. I was knocked down when I found out the man I called daddy wasn’t my biological father. I was knocked down when I found out my child was violated by someone I treated as my own child. I was knocked down when I found out some of my own family members had been sleeping with my husband. I was knocked down when folks in the church turned their back on me, speaking judgement upon me. I was knocked down when I found out my so-called besties were jealous of me and didn’t want to see me happy and with a good man. Yes Hunni!!!! I have been knocked down many times, but I ALWAYS found a way back up and kept pushing. Hallelujah!
The word of God says we are pressed on all sides, but not crushed: perplexed, but not in despair: persecuted, but not forsaken: struck down, but not destroyed (2Corithians 4:9). It’s in the word that I found my strength and still finding my strength today as trials and attacks arise in my life. We have to go through for the Glory of the Lord. The things I mentioned should have caused me to lose my mind and give up on life, but the devil is a liar because I’M NOT EASILY BROKEN!!! Yes it knocked me down, but it didn’t break the warrior inside of me. I chose to fight for my joy, happiness, peace of mind, strength, and my children and for ME. We have to trust and believe in God who said he’ll never put more on us than we could bare. People of God, you can't let that rape, being molested, that divorce, your haters, those lies, the loss of your job or home, the deaths of your loved ones, the betrayal of family and friends, jealousy of others, being cheated on , teen pregnancy, past mistakes break you down to the point of no return. You have to make a choice that you will NOT BE EASILY BROKEN.
Yes it’s ok to get knocked down, but you can’t stay down. The Lord has too much purpose for your life for you to stay down. Your husband, children, wife, mother, father, friend, co-worker, that homeless person, that stripper, that other broken woman, that young girl or boy, that prostitute needs you. Yes, those people need you so you can’t allow the enemy to break you. I know sometimes it’s easier said than done, but because I didn’t break and now I’m encouraging and ministering the word of God to God’s people I know you can too. So tell that devil I might bend to the left and right with tears flowing down my face. I might even get knocked down on my knees and sometimes to my stomach thinking of giving up, but I will NOT BE EASILY BROKEN.
May this word encourage you to push, press, stand and never give up on anything or anyone in life.
