The below is a poem that I have in my "Encouragement File" and I pull out every now and then to remind myself of just what a gold mine I am, all because of Jesus Christ. Jesus washed away my sins and cleanse me white as snow! Glory.
This is dedicated to women who may be feeling discouraged about one thing or another. You are complete because you have Jesus in your life.
"Because" by Bishop TD Jakes
Just because no one has been fortunate enough to
realize what a gold mine you are,
Doesn't mean you shine less
Just because no one has been smart enought to figure out
that you can't be topped,
Doesn't stop you from being the best.
Just because no one has come along to share your life,
Doesn't mean that day isn't coming.
Just because no one has made this race worthwhile,
Doesn't give you permission to stop running.
Just because no one has realized how much of an
awesome woman you are,
Doesn't mean they can affect your femininity.
Just because no one has shown up who can love you on
Doesn't mean you have to sink to theirs.
Just because you deserve the very best there is,
Doesn't mean that life is always fair.
Just because God is still preparing your king,
Doesn't mean that you're not already a Queen.
Just because your situation doesn't seem to be progressing right now,
Doesn't mean you need to change a thing.
Keep shining, keep running, keep hoping, and keep praying,
Keep being exactly what you are already. COMPLETE!!
