The crayons you have to color with are okay. Don’t wait for a new box of “Crayons” before you start coloring. Color with the broken ones. Broken crayons come in different colors. They might be old and broken, but they are still useful enough to give you variety in your life… until GOD blesses you with new ones. Color……………

So what if everyone else has a new box of “Crayons”. Don’t stop living your best life because you don’t have what you want…. Treat the old… like it’s new. Love what you have until you get what you want. It can work wonders for you. Pray over it. Let GOD be in it… and HE will give you what you need to bring about increase.

Your Crayons are your gifts and talents. GOD stored them inside you for good use at some point. So, “Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling… but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just start.”

If your “Crayons” are broken, it will give you more pieces to use. So continue to color. Color in your life. Fill the gaps with what you have… to keep your life from being empty. Watch it make a difference. It will. For sure……………….. It’s up to you. FINISH.

Don’t Let How You Feel… Make You Forget What You’re Worth

You can make broken look beautiful… and make strong look invincible. You can walk with the world on your shoulders, and make it look like you are walking with a pair of wings. That’s what walking by faith looks like. It is then that nothing can defeat you, and nothing can get the best of you. Yet it can only happen if you trust GOD.

Sometimes, it will seem like with all of the possibilities life has to offer, you just don’t measure up, and it might make you feel useless. Then, those thoughts might get you to thinking about your dreams, all you want to be, all you want to do, and where you want to go, but you for whatever reason, just don’t how to get there. Somehow, these thoughts might make you feel a sense of brokenness.

Hold your head up. Listen up! Remember, broken crayons still color! Therefore, even in the midst of tears and heartache and brokenness, you have to be able to find your strength. First, though, you have to be able to allow yourself to heal.

The struggle you are in today is developing the strength you need to face tomorrow. Have faith in the fact that you are “Fearfully and wonderfully made.” You are not made to stay broken. You are not made to stay down. Moreover, you were not created to be defeated.

Your greatest strength lies deep inside you. Look within. Dig into your power! GOD is there… and HE is waiting to be called upon to supply your needs, and fix everything has caused you to feel broken. Allow it to happen.

When you focus your thoughts on GOD, everything about you can be brighter and more joyful. When you feel weighed down with problems, however, it is easy to become anxious and nervous about what comes next.

Still, never allow the default setting in your mind make you focus more on problem-solving than depending on GOD’s ability to solve problems.  Instead of allowing your thoughts to flow towards what’s wrong and how to fix it, pray and allow GOD to determine what the next step is, to help correct what is wrong.
