You Were Born to Stand Out

You Were Born to Stand Out

Queens,  You and I were never created to be like everyone else. I spent so many of my adolescent years trying to fit in with others. If I did manage to fit in, I always ended up feeling like I betrayed who I really was. That would be because as queens, we were created to stand out. We were never meant to blend in with this world. If you’re feeling frustrated when you’re compromising your values for others, this is the reason. Standing out isn’t always a good thing in our eyes. Queen, pray that God will give you the...

How to Stay Grounded

Queen,  Have you ever heard of the saying “Hope for the best but prepare for the worst”? If I’m being honest, I’ve used it a few times. The problem with this statement is it isn’t really full of hope at all. It’s a cop out just in case something good doesn’t happen, we can say: “well I knew something bad was going to happen anyway.” It’s a coping mechanism for when we don’t get the outcome we were hoping for. Here’s the thing about hope: we have to place it in God and not an outcome. Hope is the anchor of...

Love Yourself

Queens,     We’re commanded to love others as we love ourselves. I think we forget about the second part of this commandment: as we love ourselves. Self-love is so important but why do we put it off? Sometimes it’s easier to make time for other people and things before ourselves. There are times we even treat other people kinder than we treat ourselves. Think about this: would you talk to others they way you talk to yourself? Are you thoughts about yourself kind or negative? If we aren’t careful, this can become a negative pattern. So how do you break...

What to do with Fear and Anxiety

Queens,    Just do the next 24 hours well. So many times, we get caught up in something that happens tomorrow, next week or month. Of course it’s good to be aware of situations but don’t become so anxious and afraid of the future that you don’t live for today. When we become so filled with anxiety about tomorrow, you know what we’re not doing? Enjoying today. We miss out on what God is doing right now. Fear and anxiety of the future take us away from the present. The truth is, the future belongs to God, not us. He’ll...

Why It’s Okay to Take More Chances

Why It’s Okay to Take More Chances

Queen,  We’re not in control of everything that happens to us. Life isn’t set up that way. However, that doesn’t mean we should stop living boldly. We shouldn’t let the fear of messing up keep us from enjoying life and trying new things. God  created us. The scripture says “He called us by name.” We belong to Him. So while we don’t have control over everything that happens to us, we belong to The One who controls our destinies. If you mess up, know that God is going to make it work in your favor. If you’re afraid or anxious...
