Introducing Short Simple Sundays, which will be posted with 500 words or less packed full of encouragement, motivation, and inspiration to start your week off the right way.
This week short post is entitled ” You Are Greater”
You are greater than your problems.
You are greater than your pain.
You are greater than your past.
You are greater than your imperfections.
There are many trials, tribulations, encounters, and circumstances that we have faced, are facing and may face in the future that will try to tear us down. Some of these things may happen that will try to make us feel counted out or that we don’t measure up.
But even in the times that we get knocked down, even in the times that we question our worth and purpose we have to remember that there is greater. There is greater in a God who is the greatest, because of his greater we are able to be greater than our circumstances.
We can put our hope in knowing that becomes of his love we are able to be more than what we face on a daily basis.
There were times in my life I questioned who I was and where I was going. I questioned if I could be greater than the toxic environment I grew up in. I questioned if I could be greater than the negative labels that people put on me. I questioned if I could be greater than the immature mistakes that I made. I questioned myself during those hard times into an anxiety and depression pit.
It wasn’t until I encountered someone feeding into my life the love of God outside of what I was going through, did I realize that I could have greater and that I could be greater than the limitations, circumstances, and setbacks that were around me.
I couldn’t be more thankful for the people who reached in to pull me out of my mess and show me something different all those years ago.
I want to be that person for you. I want to help feed into your life and show you that no matter where you come from or what you go through that you can be greater than those things.
Yes, life is hard but God is greater.
This week when you think about the rough patches that you are facing right now I want you to have the courage to look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you are greater. Tell yourself that these things shall too pass. Tell yourself that you can overcome these things and that you will overcome them just have you have overcome other hard times in your life.

This week when you get discouraged thinking your not good enough or that you lack something. I want you to silently whisper to yourself that you are greater than that negativity. I want you to tell yourself that you are greater than materialistic things. I want you to remind yourself of all the greatness you have within.
When you look at this week make up in your mind that no matter what happens you will be more than a conqueror and will conquer whatever comes your way because you have greatness inside you.
Be Great this week because you are great and because you deserve to show your greatness in each and every day.
How will you be great this week?
