If you are reading this and you are a parent of a child who has been bullied my heart goes out to you. If you are the student I want to empower you. My name is Lisa and I was bullied in school. Looking back I think many kids were it just wasn’t as known as it is now. I was made fun of for my clothes, beat up because I played with one set of sisters and not the other, rejected as a Junior in High School because a guy told a terrible lie about me and so on and so on. What I want to tell you is that it gets better.
And that most of these people who hurt me? They didn’t have half the life I’ve had nor a fraction of the success I have. None of them invented products or traveled on stages around the world, or have a ministry or an amazing 54 acre home or any of it….. Well maybe one of them might but if they do I can’t tell it.
Please know that I’m not braggin on the things God has blessed me with, all I am saying is that the words a person says about you or speaks over you have ZERO to do with your future. And I do mean ZERO. And honestly they will probably grow up and do very little in life.
So here we go. Do those words hurt? Yes, yes they do. But we can’t fix a dumb person. And we can’t fix a broken person. And someone who bullies another is broken. They have major issues and only God can help them or a smack from their parents. So I want you to write down on a sheet of paper 10 amazing things about you.
Like: I am a great reader, I’m kind to others, I have hazel eyes etc; Once this list is made I want you to speak this over yourself EVERY day.
The only words on earth that can stop you are your own. Listen I had a dad that spoke some terrible things over me. “You’ll be nothing, you’ll never succeed, you’ll be broke, You’re going to have 12 kids and you won’t be able to take care of them.” He was a very sick person mentally. He’s dead now.
But my point is that NOT one word he spoke over me…. NOT A single one ever came to pass. So I hope you look in the mirror and tell yourself: I am NOT defined by what a broken confused person speaks over me. I speak words of life over myself. I am successful and I will have a great future!
Parents: You speak this over your child daily as well. And I believe this is a great way that you can beat a bully. You beat them by not allowing them to steal your joy or by allowing them to speak words over you that come to pass. ONLY you can make a difference in your own life. And God.
Let me know if this helps you and I’ll be praying. For great videos on faith visit me on Facebook here:
