I sat down in the dark one evening in my bedroom and pondered so hard; what can I do? For some reason the Belgian social system says I am not entitled to certain ‘privileges’ because I have this or that status.

Okay! Looking from within I have fought a few battles in the past and God gave me the victory, and I got one more victory to record. The world’s systems sometimes attempt to put limitations on us that we need to be watchful to know what to allow. You know what? We have been endowed with so much potential that the world can’t snatch from us.

Retreat, have a ‘you’ time and begin to harness that which is on the inside of you! Forget about the noisome pestilence that stalks around. There’s got to be an escape road and the good news is you got this! NO system can mess with your mind if you do not authorize them to do so. Celebrate others yes, but enough of repeating the success stories of others, yours could just be the next.

Pray, work it out, love and live rejoicing. Nay, in all things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us (Rom 8:37). You know of the saying: “When life throws lemons at you, use them to make lemonade” I encourage you to get up and start making some sweet tasty lemonades. I will be your customer and I will bring with me your detractors:). It will be just a matter of time before the same system will start celebrating they had you all these while.
