Here's an awesome and profound thought by Paula White "Some people can't discern what God has developed in you because they're not supposed to! Don't waste time trying to convince someone to believe in you who is blind to you!"
God uses broken people. There is strength to be gained through the breaking process, so embrace and endure (persevere through) it because God's grace is sufficient.
Most importantly, decide to let go of the internal deception and entrapping beliefs of this world. I've found as I let go there's transformation enabled by God's grace and mercy occurred internally. Really its about learning every day to let go of past and present hurts and failures for personal growth to occur, to ultimately deepen our relationship with our Creator!
Check this out... in Gen 32:24-32 there's story of Jacob wrestling with an angel as he's struggling with a broken spirit based on past hurts and failures. ..but when he embraced his brokenness, God delivered and blessed him by changing his name and identity. Powerful! The text states Jacob's perspective of the process as 'For I have seen God face to face and my life is preserved.'
Magnificent! In the process Jacod was delivered of his past, healed, freed and blessed. Yes, God uses broken people! I know; I am one of them and in the process of my deliverance, healing and freedom I lived in the magnificence of God's presence, grace and mercy...like Jacob, God preserved me to speak of it.
Joy comes in the morning - Trust God!

Habakkuk 2:2 “And the Lord answered me and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon the tables, that he may run that readeth it."
Write it, read it and run it!
Whatever God has impassioned you to do, ‘write it down’, ‘read it out loud often’ and ‘live it by running it’ daily.
Refer to it as often as you can, and live in it as though you have already received it. To do so, you may have to change the places, persons and things you've habitually kept in your life as they may be the limiting factors to your purpose. The real talk is 'you must detangle yourself from the conflicting positions, actions and relationships.
Need a starting point? Begin with complete transparency before God, by allowing Him to see your nakedness. His grace is more than sufficient because it will enable the deliverance, healing and freedom needed to live a full life knowing God is your covering, not this world!
Do you receive it? Reach for it. Yes, it is time to write down in your heart [and on paper too] God’s purpose for your life, read it daily [speak it to yourself and others] and run it—live and thrive in it every day! There's power in Walking The Talk!
Be encouraged and patient—God is able!
Be blessed and be a blessing as you live an inspired and encouraged fulfilled life!
Persevere and enable your resiliency through God’s Word and Grace.
Don’t fence yourself in the past-our Creator has no boundaries!
