God is good.
I just finished watching the movie Right to Believe. I teared up three times and honestly I haven’t cried at all in awhile.. the raw emotion, passion, and love portrayed in this movie kept my attention until the end.
A little over a year ago I believed I was homosexual. Today I am so extremely grateful for friends that didn’t sway from their beliefs and ultimately for God who eventually got through the walls I built up. I was caught in deception by Satan, but more and more Gods truth is reigning in my life. God is bringing up even small things Satan got me to believe at a young age that are still effecting me today.
In middle school one of my best friends was Helen. We had a common interest in cats and enjoyed hanging out! One day, however, I greeted her excitedly accidentally by the wrong name. She abruptly became highly offended and it was not long after that minor incident that she never spoke to me again..
Today, someone greets me “Hey Danielle!!” I immediately feel the sense to say “Hey (insert name)!” in response. However, this belief that I will say the wrong name offending them holds me back to where I end up just simply saying, “Heyy!!” with a big smile in an attempt to not be too socially awkward. I’m determined to break this fear and false truth I hold tightly.
Love is a choice. When someone takes that small extra step of saying aloud my name I feel a spark of love. It’s time I begin to return the sparks. ❤️
