Don’t Settle

bubbleI don’t need to settle

for a life half-lived.

I’m not the lies I’ve always believed

I’m not the patterns that I once learned

I’m not the person that I’ve always been.

I’m frightened; but I am not my fears.

I am not in control; but that is good.

I will not be bound by the chains that Christ has broken

I will not despise what He calls precious

I don’t believe in shame or self-hatred or self-improvements

I believe in Jesus

and He is my life.

  1. This is brilliant.
    I write a lot as I find it therapeutic when fighting against anorexia is feeling overwhelming.
    But I always long for something short, sharp and to the point, that will remind me of the plain truth.
    This does just that.
    Thank you <3
