I Can Do All Things…

18 Apr

I can do all things, through HIM who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

The ONLY options you truly have in life’s decisions: Go all in or not in at all. You are either committed or you are not committed at all. You can’t be indecisive, sort of committed to something.

I encourage you to be strong in faith when you are weak in the midst of your battle. Be willing to do the uncomfortable and face your fears. If you spend your life only doing what is easy, what is peaceful, what is predictable, you become weak. You really aren’t living or growing or becoming stronger.

Pain is part of our journey. We either run from it, ignore it, or push through to the other side of it. Our own spiritual growth is dependent on our ability to take those leaps of faith.

Some people get so caught up in the struggle, they forget what they are fighting for. They only see what they are fighting against. If you don’t stay focused on your commitment, you lose sight of the goal. The struggle sidetracks you, lies to you, encourages you to throw in the towel. When you fight against it, all that really happens is that it weakens you.

In our work, our relationships, our challenges, we will face ourselves and grow or we will become shells of all we could have been. Facing our knee jerk response to run, to hide, ignore or to lash out, to consciously deciding to push through…only then can we find ourselves with the peace of deliverance.

We must pray for discernment about our own free will and our own fears. Ask yourself if this is the lie your fear is telling you?

We must learn to challenge the lies we believe about ourselves and our journey. Pray for wisdom, for clarity, for strength to focus on HIS truth and plans for you life.

Learn to discern your fear from what is actually truth, to fight hard to push through that desire to flee from all that is uncomfortable, from what doesn’t give you the peace you long for.

There is only one true peace.

Fear is not it.

“For nothing will be impossible with God” Luke 1:37

It’s always too early to quit!
