Last of all, I want to remind you that your strength must come from the Lord’s mighty power within you.
Ephesians 6:10 KJV
I got this! If you do, why then are you contemplating now what your next steps will be with some hesitation? Take a moment and reflect on the things you’ve encountered: heartbreak, loss of jobs, loss of loved ones; there’s always been something. Remember the times you felt overwhelmed and wanted to give up? Guess what? You’re still here!! Because of His power that worketh in you, you have been girded up and strengthened to make a difference. A key I’ve learned about recognizing my strength is not to minimize the successes I experience, no matter how minimal they seem – as they are notable and substantial.
Pull out your mirror and see the superhero in front of it – YOU! Today, affirm to yourself, “I’m Stronger Than I Think!” Okay, that wasn’t too convincing; let’s do that again, “I’m Stronger Than I Think!” That was much better! Now hold on to that enthusiasm and that inward power placed in you by the Lord and keep it moving! There will be afflictions that we face, trials, and tribulations we will encounter, but there is nothing too hard for God, and He will not put more on you than you can bear.
Let me recommend that you find an accountability partner, mentor, or coach who will help you stay grounded during your journey. Take time with this search as anointed godly counsel is a precious blessing.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
