I was cruising the internet looking for some motivation because my spirit has been troubled lately dealing with all of life's obstacles. And I was led to this poem by T.D. Jakes. It is very powerful, and gave me the motivation I was looking for to continue my "battle" against spiritual enemies. I hope this helps to uplift and encourage someone else...

"Because" - By: TD Jakes
Just because no one has been fortunate enough to realize what a gold mine you are...
Doesn't mean you shine any less.

Just because no one has been smart enough to figure out that you can't be topped...
doesn't stop you from being the best.

Just because no one has come along to share your life...
doesn't mean that day isn't coming.

Just because no one has made this race worthwhile...
doesn't give you permission to stop running.

Just because no one has realized how much of an awesome woman you are...
doesn't mean they can affect your femininity.

Just because no one has shown up who can love you on your level...
doesn't mean you have to sink to theirs.

Just because you deserve the very best there is...
doesn't mean that life is always fair.

Just because God is still preparing your king...
doesn't mean that you're not already a Queen.

Just because your situation doesn't seem to be progressing right now...
doesn't mean you need to change a thing.

Keep shining, keep running, keep hoping, and keep praying,
Keep being exactly what you are already...
