If you have social media or you are hip to pop culture then you have heard the term “The Glow Up”. If for some reason you have no clue what this means, let me explain it to you.
The Glow up is the transition from your awkward phase to your mature self. From broke to wealth, from Lil mama circa 2009 to Lil Mama circa 2017. From big chop to waist length, from unemployed to a job with benefits. From your mamas basement to your very own condo. From crying over your ex to moving on to the next.
The Glow Up is The Come Up.
It’s when everything bad that ever was, turns into everything good that is.
People tin to speak about "The Glow Up" as if it's some magic powder sprinkled down from God that will transform your life, over night.
The Glow Up takes time. Let me repeat that, THE GLOW UP TAKES TIME, and something else you might want to know, The Glow Up usually only comes after The Storm. There is usually some lesson to be learned or demon to be fought before you make it to the other side.
“The Glow Up” isn’t for some elite group of people who just happened to be favored over all others, but I do believe it is achieved after putting in lots of hard work and something called faith. When God sees your work and your faith he will provide your glow.
Just the other day I cried (I’m a crier), and I’m talking one of those good cries, one of those cries that was in need of release, it was a happy cry. I cried for all of the things to come. I cried in thanks for what God is going to do with my life. I don’t know what it is but I know its something great, because I have hope, and hope is the foundation that faith stands on.
There will be bumps in the road. I wont always follow Gods will. There will be times where I will go off track. I just pray that when I do I will recognize it and not go astray for long.
All the while, through your journey and even more importantly, through the valley’s, keep your faith and let God provide ......
