We've all been in that place where we believed, "Where there's a will, there is a way" and we have al tried to push forward and be our best selves and then cried when we failed yet one more time.
Many believe that the Christian walk is nothing more than living life with rose colored glasses on, but when you have been where I have been, stuck in the middle of that briar patch, unable to go left or right, up or down, without causing more damage and you have had to wait on God to carefully and tenderly pull you out, then you know, that's far from the truth.
How do you come face to face with knowing your own shortcomings YET encouraging enough to communicate that you are special to God and He loves you very much BUT you cannot do this in your own strength, but you MUST trust God?
This morning I woke to a post reminding women (that's the group it was shared in but it's for all believers - sons & daughters) how to win this battle. The message of hope, of motivation, of love comes from understanding your position in Christ. You are able to recognize where your strength comes from and who your Helper is that causes you to not stay down when the enemy has begun to make his victory lap yet God says - not today Satan, this is my child, this is my daughter and she will not fail.
Are you a believer, born again and baptized into the family? Your father is King
If you can say yes then take your place as a child of God
You are beautiful - fearfully and wonderfully made by God Himself
You are favored by God
And so much more!!! Read your Father's letter to you and be strengthened and know your blessings. It is not by me or you but by His Spirit. Raise your head high and start again for you are loved, you are adored and by His Spirit you will not fail if you walk in His ways. Trust Him, Believe Jesus.
