““For this reason, I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”
– 2 Timothy: 6-7
Do you know you can make your life anything you choose to make of it? You have way more power than you think. And there’s nothing like feeling powerless or feeling like you don’t have a choice. It’s easy to get there, right? When you’re exhausted or tired, you feel like I don’t have a choice. You feel like you’re a product of your circumstances, you feel helpless. You’re not. You have the power to choose. You are powerful. You are called. You are filled with the spirit of the Almighty God who made the universe. That’s in you.
Thank you, Lord, for empowering me. Help me to push forward, always. I am not helpless, I am yours.
Do you feel powerful to overcome life difficulties?
It is very hard to feel powerful (even in God) or adequate when nothing I do (no matter how well) seems quite good enough in the eyes of others … when there is always someone else who seem to do a just bit better (even when that’s not true), and whom everyone else notices …
It’s something I have battled with all my life and just when I seem to have a handle on it and feel good about me and what I do, something else happens that just sends me right down that hole again …
I know I am a beloved child of God. My heart belongs to Him and my relationship with God is just fine, Almost everything I do, I do for Him and in Him. It’s people who cannot seem to accept me or what I do, who cannot accept the gifts God has given me or even allow me to use those gifts … which often simply leads to feeling invisible, unaccepted and totally inadequate …
