Only YOU can tell your story!
They say it's easy to let go but I beg to differ. Part of me wants to move on but I'm scared of the new me. The new me is good and everything I prayed for but sometimes it's shocking and hard to accept the fact that He paid for it. My new life is something that I did not earn; but by His stripes I'm healed and that's my only concern. I want to live right and do His will but then there is that voice that tells me to chill. My purpose is to help others by sharing my story. I wonder why it's so hard for them to give Him the glory. I know it sounds like a bunch of rhymes and you consider it boring but who am I to act like I didn't go through life worrying. Of course this is contrary to what the world wants to see but if not me then who will it be? -The Diary of Alexis Love
I wrote this short poem after being criticized for sharing my story. Get this, I know that there is a right and wrong way to do things. However, the word says "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free"John 8:32. Please note: everyone will not agree with your story, some may not even believe it but the harsh truth is that we go through things to be able to help others. I believe that is what this life is all about. In my darkest times, I could not understand why I had to endure so much pain but it was also temporary. I am truly thankful for it all. Without the struggles and the pain, I would not be the woman I am today. Although the truth hurts, it is one way to set us free.
I have learned this one thing. People will have something to say whether you are doing good or doing bad. That in itself is not of importance as you find the courage to tell your story. Your story can change someone else's life. As ugly as the truth may sound, it is where we find true beauty; the beauty of life. Sharing my life story has allowed me to move on from the former things and live free and healed in this new life! If not you then who?
