It's Not About You - Intro

It is a beautiful thing to be able to go through a trial in your life and come out a winner.  Losing never feels good.  But no matter what you've been through in your life, being dealt a bad hand in life does not qualify you for unsuccessful living as an adult.
So many of us get through things in our lives and forget about helping others that are going through those things now.  If you have gotten through that thing, it is a testimony.  Your testimony is not for you.  It is to edify others, therefore, glorifying God when you do so.
Remember how you felt when you were going through your trial.  Some may have felt alone, depressed, angry, scared, etc.  As humans, we have the ability of being filled with compassion.  There is enough compassion to see someone else going through what we just went through, extend our hand and offer our assistance to get them out.  Of course, there are times you may come across those that do not want your assistance.  Nevertheless, you are still able to pray if that's what you believe in. In case you don't believe in God, you are still able to pronounce good things into someone's life and direct them to where they can get help they are more apt to receive.

You coming out wasn't all for you.  You came out to bring others out.  Never underestimate the power within to be just for you.  God gave it to you to share with others.  The power He placed inside you is to be shared with others.

What has He brought you out of lately, that you are able to share with others when you see them going through the same turmoil?

Much love,


  1. Powerful words from a wise and traveled woman.....I love this being a mother and grandmother...I always tell my seeds; its not always just about YOU...someone out there in the world is waiting on you to share your life and your be about the business of living and doing....learning how to be the best you...because there is always work to be done. Thank you Beloved....Ashe

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I agree, we must get busy living and doing. We must push each other into our destiny. Being selfish and withholding something that will help others is no good for them nor us.

  2. You spoke about being filled with compassion. Years ago, I thought I had compassion. I was living for God and just knew on a scale from 1 to 10, that I was without a doubt a big, fat 10. However, I was judgemental and critical. Then, it happened--LIFE. Life hit me with some very tough things which I did eventually come through. Now that I'm on this side of those things, I can see that I did not have as much compassion back then as I thought. But I surely do now.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to read the blog. Life has a funny way of showing you who you really are. I experienced the same thing as you and had to come to grips with who I really was. NO DIFFERENT THAN ANYONE ELSE. It's almost hard to believe when life slaps you in the face with such reality. Fortunately for us, we realized where the problem was, owned it, and changed. Thanks for sharing.
