From The Ashes We Will Rise
SJW Week 5Jasmine N Cannon-Ikurusi
Ashes are a sign that something is over.
Ashes may be a constant reminder that something happened, but its over nonetheless. That means its time to dust yourself off and see yourself for who the Lord has made you rather than what the past tried to make you. Begin by making a firm decision that you won’t keep rehearsing what happened. You won’t keep talking about it to friends and family.
There comes a time to make a decision to move on.
Oh Yes baby its going to be hard!
Oh yes it will feel like you are ripping out your heart!
Oh yes it may seem like no one will stand with you!
Oh yes you may feel alone!
Oh yes it may feel like an impossibility!
But I just want to tell you, “Rest”
You do not need to carry the battle on your own!
When you decide to do this, God will supply you with something beautiful!
The ashes will eventually disappear!
You cannot continue to light a fire that should have been put out years ago!
The pain will get easier!
Just take it one day at a time!
Its a process!
But make the decision today, to let go!
Let go baby, so that you can live!
There is no denying that your past is a part of you! You can’t change it! But it doesn’t have to continue to be your anchor!
Sometimes insecurities have a way of only saying what is wrong with you, that we become so blinded to see the best parts of ourselves! The past is not the better part of you!
TODAY WE STAND TO SAY THAT OUR PAST IS NO LONGER OUR ANCHOR!
WE HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE TODAY!
LIVE IN-DESPITE OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES!
LIVE IN-DESPITE OF YOUR PAIN!
TODAY WE LIVE!
I KNOW YOUR MOTHER RASIED A WARRIOR!
SO START GO GET YOUR WEAPONS TAT YOU HAVE BURIED FOR TOO LONG AND GET READY FOR THE WAR AHEAD!
