I do have a lot on my plate ... professionally, personally, emotionally, mentally, physically ... need I say more? I am sure you can relate and I am not in this cycle alone. What do you do to get out of it? What methods do you put into action to bring you down to reality for just a short period of time? I do not have a 'get out of myself for free card'. I normally have to fight to overcome. It is a battle and then I heard this female preacher this morning. I wish I knew her name so I could give her credit for what I am about to share but I do not. Bottom line, she shared something with me that brought everything into focus ... it removed all the fog, all the overload, all the fear, all the doubts, all the confusion, and it inspired me. It reminded me of what I need to say to myself every morning despite the thoughts I am thinking ... despite the burdens I am carrying ... despite my heartaches ... despite my fears ... despite my hurt caused by others ... despite it all. What she did for me she can do for you!!!! All you have to do is ask yourself:

THIS IS MY DADDY!!!!
When I verbally and out loud remind myself who I belong to, it lightens my load, fills me with hope and faith, and it enables me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I do not know about you but I need to see a shimmer of hope in my life today ... do you?
