Just a little somethin'.



Let the sign of what he has done be evident in your life.

Can I be real with you? Freedom and peace was something and is something that I have had to fight for and learn. My story is a broken girl, looking for love in all of the wrong places. Lost, and making some bad decisions. I could never understand why I went through the things I went through, and up until a few years ago I would ask why I couldn’t have been born into a family who was “regular”, why I couldn’t have been born with a father who was involved. 

The feeling of abandonment and brokenness growing up was so intense, that I became very good at pretending. Of Course, brokenness had fallowed my mother into her life as well, and it was a cycle that the enemy was determined to keep in our family and in my life. I had to be real with myself, and my heart, and my problems. If I wanted to be different, and break a cycle, I had to face the enemy, become brave, and begin to look into the deepest and darkest places of my heart. Intense.

Jesus had different plans for me, and my life. I am not just thankful, but humbled and ripped apart for him and what he has done in my life. I am thankful for my life and testimony now. His plans are greater than mine, his thoughts are higher than mine. He knew what to do with me way before I thought I knew what to do with myself. No matter where you come from, what hear and pain you have, what you are dealing with. 

He is able. He can, and he will. 

Freedom knowing that I am free in him. Forgiving others because he has forgiven me -Knowing that I was born into sin, like everyone else, and he has called me his beloved, his daughter. That he heals broken hearts, and is doing this for us so that we may be able to tell and witness our stories of redemption by grace.  

Break whatever cycle the enemy may have you in. Be brave to step out, and call the enemy out on what he has taken or stolen from you.

Know that freedom is something that God desires us to be in. He called us not only to be delivered from things- But free. I'm on a journey to fight for my children, my family, and this generation. I want to take adavtange of every second that I have hear in earth to make a difference. 

When you feel a tug at your heart to do something, do it. A smile, a hug, a word, prayer, a buisness, whatever it may be that God is tugging at your heart with, do it. Don't be afraid of change, don't be complasive with where you are at. 


As always, You Rock.

XOXO,

Alexandra

  1. I resonate with this a lot. I am continually pressing in to free myself from some not so awesome cycles and things that have cycled in my family. Freedom is amazing, and He is so good <3
