WHO LIED TO YOU SIS?????????
My grandmother use to say, "A lie don't care who tell it" and she was right. Lies hurt, hinder and hold people captive. Lies can change the course of a person life before they know what hit them. How so? So glad you asked:
When someone (a loved one, the media, peers, a mate...etc) lies to you long enough, you start believing it. Sometimes lies come from other people and other times lies come from within. We lie to ourselves to avoid painful realities because it's easier. Some people lie to avoid from hurting others and to avoid conflict.
Take me for example, I lied to myself for years making myself believe I would never find love, I'd never marry because of my size. I was suspect of men who showed interest in me and it was hard to trust their intentions. I told myself this lie to avoid being hurt. After meeting a beautiful man who loved me for me, I had to learn how to accept a new truth that set me free: I was worthy of love and all good things.
When I lived in D.C., a friend invited me to a workshop. The workshop changed my life. I learned something very powerful and I am going to share it with you. But before I do, you have to understand the process. I had to learn who lied to me so I could kill the lie and free myself. I learned most of the lies I was harboring I created myself - Ain't that some mess...LOL. But it was true. I was holding myself back from what I wanted because I convinced myself Love would never happen for me. Once I decided to learn a new truth -The Freedom I felt was exhausting - so much so I fainted...(LOL). I literally fainted.
Self Reflection Work:
Who lied to you?
Who told you that you could not be or do something?
Who said you were not good enough?
Who lied and said you didn't matter?
Who lied & told you that you were fat and unworthy of love?
Who lied & cursed your womb?
Who lied & said that you would die before your time?
Who lied & said you didn't deserve more than what you have now.
Who lied & said you would die unfulfilled and feeling unloved and unwanted?
If I didn't hit your lie or the lie someone told to you...fill in the blank for yourself, but whatever lie they told you...toss that crap in the trash. It is not your job to hold onto or carry lies that someone told you. Nor are you to create lies to protect yourself. The truth will always make you free, trust me!
The Truth Will Make You Free
The truth is you are a child of the most high God. God desires for you to be in health and to prosper.
The devil is the father of lies. You have the power to "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Cor. 10:5). But if you don't know the word of God you are powerless and unable to fight the devil when he attacks. You must know how to fight in order to keep your peace and joy.
God wants the best for us. He loves to see His children thriving and living abundantly. We have to make a choice to live above and not beneath. We have to choose what we believe. God has placed greatness inside each of us for His glory. We have to stop thinking small and trust God's plan for our lives. So if you are someone who has settled with the status quo and you think this is the best you can do - or maybe you don't see yourself as powerful, beautiful and capable of doing all things through Christ; I offer you this:
Through Christ you can do all things. God can do any thing but fail. God created us in His image which means if we seek Him and read His word, He has the blueprints for our lives to be great - You have to decide for yourself to walk in the light of all truth which is God the Father.
So, here is what I learned at the workshop:
I learned "I am a powerful, loving and caring healer". Just having to say it out loud made me weep. For so long, the devil made me believe I was unworthy of the call on my life. The workshop helped me see myself for the first time without doubt. I can stand firmly and say I was born with great purpose and no one can do what I was born to do. I learned the power within. I learned that my voice matters and people want to hear what I have to say.

Here's to us living in truth and light,
Power Prayer: Father, thank you for removing the scales from my eyes so I might see the truth about who I am according to your word. Thank you for keeping me even in my unbelief. I now believe I was born with great purpose. Thank you for helping me become the best version of me I can be. Help me to renew my mind daily to become more like you. Thank you for giving me new sight where I was once blind. Thank you for loving me in and out of season. I am excited about who I get to be when I choose to know the truth which makes me free, In Jesus name, Amen.
