Yes, it’s not just about taking back your power, it’s about taking back your person! It begins with building up yourself, spiritually, emotionally & relationally! You may need to open up to a mentor! Also, decide to live up to your godly ideals. And sometimes, taking back your power may involve reaffirming your boundaries, distancing yourself from certain people, speaking up, reporting to constituted authority, or just going public with an issue! Be strong & do it!
Your destiny is the topmost top! The Lord bring you out of every darkness of life! May you work in the fulness of his purpose for your life! Live strong! Go forward! Achieve greatness in Jesus Christ name!
