Nothing you’ve gone through will be wasted!


Isn’t it just so refreshing when we see the seasons changing, but what happens when it feels like winter when it’s supposed to be summer?  It makes us feel down, we feel like we’re stuck and feel the weight of the same all things. I just wanted to encourage you today;  that it will change, that however your feeling nothing you’ve gone through will stay the same, no matter where you are on your journey.

I felt encouraged as I listened to Oprah Winfrey, who in this brief but powerful talk, lets us know that nothing we’ve gone through in life will be wasted. Are you familiar with her story, she went through her own childhood traumas and challenges; she was a victim of rape by one of her cousin’s from the age of 9 years old, she was also raped by one of her mother’s boyfriends. She became pregnant and was a mother at the age of 14 years old, but lost the baby. What a lot to go through at such a young age. She also experienced emotional and physical abuse at the hands of her grandmother…

I mean, let me just take a moment here to just breathe!!! I need to use some African American vernacular to express how I’m feeling right now- it seems that no one can cut us to the “white meat” or “hitting a deep spot of no return in an argument or conflict” like our family! So as you listen to her, be reminded that you too can be an overcomer….. if she can come through so can we!! Can I get an AMEN!

Remember the book is now available on Amazon, so get your copy now! Thank you!
