In my past, I was like a dandelion. I knew my place in the field. I was timid, easily hurt, and tossed apart by a gentle blow of the wind. God transformed me into a powerful rose; one that has finally found inner self-worth, strength, and acceptance. I am valuable to God.
Through the grace of God, I’ve grown in so many areas of my life. No longer am I easily broken. Now, I can endure the storms and rains of life because I’ve learned they’re only present in my world, my pasture, for a season. I have bloomed in the midst of rejection and adversity, and have learned how to apply the principle of prayer. I’ve witnessed its power. I desire to encourage those who are struggling to overcome the strongholds of the enemy. I aspire to challenge them to apply the very principles that created the victory I now walk in. Through the miracle-working power of God, you can be the very best you. If placed in the right garden, you can also bloom.
God desires that we are whole and complete in every area of our lives. He does not want us to continue to hold on to past wounds as trophies and residue as bad memories. He wants us to be free – completely. He desires that we have champion states of mind and withstand the challenges of life on every level. It is possible through faith. Philippians 4:13 assures us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. If you have the willingness to become better, you can. You simply need a made-up mind and relentless determination to WIN.
We have all experienced different walks of life; we all have different struggles that we continually fight to overcome. My struggle may have been different from yours, but it’s a struggle. I’ve learned that the ultimate reward for defeating the struggle is the chance – the matchless opportunity to live without strongholds and in complete freedom. The goal is to remain free… totally free.
