How hard is it for you to believe in yourself? Maybe you’ve spent your entire life being told that you’re not good enough, and maybe the person doing the talking has been you. When you start believing that you can, you’re half way there.

Please my sister, recognize, you can be a masterpiece while still being a work in progress.

Psalms 139:14 tells me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Luke 12:7 tells me that I am of great value.
Philippians 4:13 tells me that I can do all things through Him.

Every one of those scriptures apply to you too. You are fearfully and wonderfully made, you are of great value, and you can do all things through him.

You have been given this life to live, so today, do that. That’s what I want you to do. But more importantly, that’s what your creator wants you to do today. Live this day of life and live it well! Believe you are worthy of this life that you have been given. Be that girl who believed she could (BECAUSE SHE KNOWS WHERE HER STRENGTH COMES FROM), so she did.

I have a powerful question specifically for you. In fact it’s so powerful, I encourage you to write it down and put it on your mirror for the next week. Are you ready for the question:

What will you do with this one beautiful life because you believed you could?

That better stir something in you. God has already given you everything it takes, all that’s been missing is your faith. Faith in yourself.

You’ve forgotten that you’re good enough.
You’ve forgotten that you’re fully capable.
Maybe you’ve forgotten that you’re worth it too.
But hey you, you who was fearfully and wonderfully made by the creator of the universe. You who are of great value to the King of all Kings. You who can do all, A-L-L, things through him. Yes, all things and that includes whatever you’re facing right now. All includes this, and you CAN do it through Him. It’s time you start believing that you can, because actually, you can.

So, what will you do with this one beautiful life because you believed you could?

God has been working on you for years. Oh if you only knew all the behind the scenes work he has done to bring you to this exact place today. It’s nothing short of a miracle that you are here and you are listening, and it’s all by design. You are meant to hear this today and God wants you to know that YOU ARE READY.

You’re ready to step into the fullness of your potential. You are ready to follow those dreams that he planted in you. He’s brought you through the fires, he’s protected you through the storms, he’s strengthened you through the battles and now you are ready. Look at all he has done; don’t you believe in Him? Look at all you have come through; don’t you believe in you?

What will you do with this one beautiful life because you believed you could?

Now, you know I like to keep it real, so here’s the truth about how it really feels on this journey of believing and doing … some days you won’t believe. Some days you won’t do. Some days you won’t feel it and some days you’ll go backwards instead of forward.

Does that mean you’ve lost it? Does that mean it will always be this way? NOT AT ALL. This is part of the journey.

Every day you and I wake up to a new invitation to believe in God and believe in what he’s equipping us to do. If you’ve been in a downward spiral of screwing this thing up, it’s harder to believe, but the invitation is still there.


Now, here’s the other thing, believing must be backed by action. All the faith in the world isn’t going to clean your house or pay your bills. You believe you can, alrighty then, do it! Talk is cheap and faith is wasted sitting in a mess and waiting for a miracle to change it. YOU ARE THE MIRACLE. GET UP AND DO SOMETHING!

God is looking for some bold girls to rise up and DO SOMETHING with their life. WILL YOU DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIFE?

Do something to make an impact. Do something to make a difference. Do something that brings you back to life. Do something that makes you excited to wake up each morning. Do something that brings joy and passion and pizazz back to your family.

Because you’re the girl. You’re the one he handcrafted as a masterpiece and included every single thing it would require to achieve it all. Now you have to believe. Have faith in the girl he made. Have faith he made you whole and complete. Have faith he gave you that dream. And have faith he’s going to go with you as you dare to do something with this one beautiful life.

And when you screw this up, because oh darling you will, have faith to believe that God’s not done with you yet. He started something good in you and he will finish what he started!
