Not I.

“You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.”-Song of Soloman 4:7

amen

In 2016, I wrote a post about how I was a survivor of spousal abuse.

I received so many messages from friends, family, and my fellow bloggers about the post. It was a hard one to write, because this is not a fun thing to talk about.

But it is a post I hold near and dear to my heart, and I am glad I shared it.

Because I am not alone.

We are the fighters. We are the ones that cannot be silenced. We are the ones who make people see those for who they truly are.

Though the world may not ever understand the struggles we face and will continue to face-we know.

They try to tear us down. They try to quiet us. They try to make us feel as though we are not enough.

But we refuse to accept those notions.

Not I. Not us.

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” from 2 Timothy 1:7 reminds us that God made us to be strong.

Be strong. Be feisty. Be powerful.

Be who God made you to be-not who that person claimed you were.

-Kristin
