“Quitting is not an option” by Monique Lynelle
Today 09/29/16 as I surfed the Net and I found this awesome video by Nick Vujicic. You cannot judge a book by its cover and sometimes you have to give something a chance before you determine what the contents of a thing. This man inspired me to continue on in the path in which I am going. This blog is not by accident and there are many people that give up on themselves, but like he says in this video we all have a purpose. Finding your purpose is important and helping others find theirs is one of mine. I hope this video encourages you, but first I want to share something with you. I was depressed after the death of my father in 2008, and then my new born baby passed away shortly after she was born a few months later 2009, and then my mother passed away in 2011. My daughter was born at 5 ½ months and lived for 3 hours and 16 minutes. I was devastated and thought I wouldn’t be able to make it, but because I have faith in God and I didn’t give up, now I have a master’s degree, a certified cosmetology instructor, a certified TV producer, an author of 3 books, an artist/songwriter, and I just finished writing my first movie, and started a television show, and I am going to have a documentary coming out soon. I am an overcomer and a survivor because I have not quit. God has not quit on me and I know that things will get better, not just for me but they can get better for you also. I made a choice to continue with my life and not let the hurt and pain of a loved one determine my future. I made a choice to follow Christ Jesus and although I am not perfect God is that sent His son to show me the way and to sacrifice his life to atone for my sins. It is not over for me yet and it’s not over for you either. That is why when the doctor’s told me that my child might not come out alive, I still named her Miracle Lynea, because she came out alive and she held on for 3 hours and 16 minutes to remind me of the sacrifice the Father made in letting his loved son Christ Jesus come to this earth and atone for my sins. (Read John 3:16) October is Pregnancy and Infant Awareness month and attached will be a link about how you can help people remember their loved ones. I will always remember my daughter Miracle Lynea. I will be attending a memorial for families that have lost their infants to still birth, miscarriage, neonatal death or SIDS on October 2, 2016 in Washington DC. The 9th Annual Service of Remembrance called Healing Hearts. http://www.october15th.com/ Find your purpose and don’t quit just because life gets a little difficult, because God loved you enough to give you a life. Live with a purpose. Also my books have the whole story, My Journey at 30 and the most recent one is Blessed in the Midst of the Storm. Just visit my website http://MoniqueLynelle.com and be inspired by the video by Nick Vujicic.
