Who AM I?

19th July 2018 by Toye Sofidiya

I AM… The light I never thought I could be.

For so long, I have allowed life circumstances, failed relationships & education history along with numerous other set backs to scream at me the very person (I Am NOT). I realise today thatI have given (and still do sometimes) so much space to to those life happenings to sound like my truth and my final destination. What an injustice I have been living in over the years.

I am the light I never thought I could be, even in the darkest times in my life, I have still, somehow, shone so bright. It’s true, I still shine.

Even when I fail to realise it, I shine.

Most times, it will take the observation of others to distinguish the very strength you posess, to remind you of this great truth that, You. Are. Strong.

You are strong and full of light, even when you’re at your weakest, in the darkest and most desolate of places. It is in you.

9. “And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then i am strong.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

I am the light I never thought I could be, because I am in Christ, And Christ In Me. *drops pen*
