Hello My Beautiful Sisters,

A few years ago I used to tell myself that I wasn't good enough. I began comparing myself with other "more Godly women" who deserved "more than I". Then one evening, during a Ladies Meeting at church, God basically told me to "knock it off!!" (potted version ) Well I took it to heart (literally) and never looked back. It made me do a complete 180.

I'm not claiming this to be the instant cure for everyone, but it can be - if you believe it and receive it. It's a process, a journey. For some, it's as short a journey as going to the mailbox while for others it's a cross-country drive, and the experiences along the way are different for each one of us.

The first leg of the journey is known as "head knowledge". That's when you hear or read the Word but you may not quite understand or believe it yet, so it sleeps quietly in your mind (the seed is planted).

The next leg is "heart knowledge". At some point "the [proverbial] light goes on" and we believe it, we understand it - we get it! The seed has been watered, has sprouted and the plant has grown until it fills our very soul.

Now comes the best part - ACTION! We do whatever it takes in order to make that belief a physical reality. For me it was "You know what? I AM worthy, I AM priceless and I DO have value, and there is no one on Planet Earth who can make me believe any different!"

This is for those of you who are wading through the river. I have prayed for you believing this spirit of depression to be lifted and completely gone from you. I am not praying that anymore because I know that prayer has been answered. Now I'm praying for daily strength, renewal and upliftment because that's all I can do for you now. The rest is up to you.

This is my most favorite scripture in the entire Bible:

"Fear not: for I have redeemed thee. I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, they Savior." (Isaiah 43:1b-3a)
