I am the Warrior!
I am not just a survivor. I THRIVE!
I am the phoenix rising out of the ashes.
You can kick me down; but I will always get up.
I WILL RISE AGAIN!
All that life has handed me has fallen by the wayside.
I have been molested. I have been raped. I have been beaten. I have been hated by those who should have loved me. I have an auto-immune disease that knocks me down; but has yet to take my life.
I have stared death in the face 7 times to date and still I live.
I am strong! I have a monster inside of me that will not die. She is a conqueror.
I am the hero of my own story. It is the story that God has guided me through, encouraged me to keep going and to be the conqueror of. It is not the story of the weak; but of the strong.
I am not a princess to be saved. I am not a damsel in distress. I do not wait for a man to rescue me; but depend on Christ who gives me strength (Phil. 4:13); because greater is He who is within me than he who is living in the world. (1 John 4:4). And to Him be the glory given.
