Good morning to you wonderful people! This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it! It has been a few hours and I’m trusting your focus remains it. To shine on. To make a difference. To grow. To be positive. Everything good, amidst the bad!
Today I want to speak to any lady like me. One who’s felt belittled. One who’s been betrayed. One who’s felt a mess. One who’s been confused. One who’s experienced self pity. One who’s always walking on coals of fire. One who’s full of scars and wounds. This goes out to you.
You were born, rejected at child birth. Grown up feeling unwanted and rejected. This is for you. Your birth is something beyond your control. You are not lucky but blessed you’re still living. Your fate lies in your hands. You can be that change you’d wished at birth. You can be a super woman!
You went to the schools in the village. You walked bare feet, your uniforms were rugged. You had no friends, you sat alone, you could only carry a dish of boiled githeri. This is for you. You’re now a grown woman. It doesn’t matter where you schooled. What matters is what you are doing with the little or much you gained then. Be the voice for those like you today!
You are done with school. So much struggle you’ve been through. Time and again you were in and out of school. There wasn’t enough school fees to keep you in consistently. Girl it is okay and this is for you. At the time, that was how it was supposed to be. It’s gone now. You have an ability, a uniqueness. Use that to grow yourself!
You fell in love. Innocently you remained so faithful to the love of your life. You got pregnant and was rejected. You have no good job and you do not know how exactly you will look after baby. This is for you. Tears may fall in the night, but joy comes in the morning. It is well. That child will eat, will sleep and live a life they never imagined. Because you were strong enough to bring him into this world.
Now you are single. You have wanted a life partner. Love has failed you. Companionship has failed you. Friendship has failed you. Joy has left you. This is for you. You have a friend who is closer than a brother. Feel His embrace now, He needs to fill you with Himself first, and then He will send love your way.
Darling, I know you have not only been hurt, you have been rejected. Insulted and mocked to your face, looked down upon and made to feel of no worth. I want to encourage you with the story of a woman who’s been like you, a period of 12 years.
I don’t know her name, but I know she has suffered. I don’t know where she lived, but I know she found Jesus. This woman suffered hemorrhage, for 12 years. Blood leaving her all that time and still SHE WAS ALIVE! Well today, it’s easy to die from loss of blood for not so long a time. But she didn’t!
As Jesus was passing by, she wondered how she could just reach through to Him. She felt ashamed because of her condition. People rejected her and considered her dirty, filthy, impure. But somehow she managed and got through to Jesus. “I don’t have to get to where He is. All I need is to touch the hem of His cloak, and I will be well!”
She was bold enough to do it and voila! She was made well. Jesus noticed strength leave Him. He didn’t condemn the woman. Instead, He was impressed by her faith. “Daughter, go in peace. your faith has made you well.” That was it! The whole word was against this woman, rejected her because she was “dirty” but see how Jesus responds.
This goes out to you once more daughter. You feel that life has been nothing but unfair. Jesus still lives. Walking among us. In the crowds of the streets. Even Tom Mboya! Are you ready to touch His cloak? Are you bold? How about a boost to that faith?
You are wounded, rejected, single, unemployed. Here is how you touch His cloak. It is in John 14:14 “If you ask the Father of anything in my Name, I will do it.” And after, He will grant you peace as you walk on the streets of this big town, city, village, etc.
This goes out to you. When the world has been nothing but against you, Jesus is and will forever be for you.
I love you. 🙂
From my heart to yours. 🙂
