We know God is able, but do you know that you are?
I spent my morning crying about how I feel like I’m slipping backwards in my stamina to continue on my weight loss journey. It takes effort and focus! And I don’t feel as focused as I was a few weeks ago. I see the signs….sipping a bit of juice here…snacking on foods outside of the plan there. I can’t afford to draw back.
So as I started to slip into a mini depressing whining session to God, He stopped me in my tracks. “You are able.” That threw me through a loop. I am used to me saying that to God. You know the song, “God is able to do, just what He said he will do….He’s able!”
But what about me? There is a scripture in the bible (Philippians 4:13) which says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me,” right? Can means able, right?
There’s another scripture (Mark 9:23) which says, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him (she) that believes!” God tells us over and over and over again in His word that we too are able. And with Him…His strength, grace, empowering presence in your life, you are able too.
So today, I challenge you as I challenge myself to stop the pity party, quit the self doubt and believe that you are indeed able!
Great post and I definitely needed to read it today. It’s so hard at times but I think the main thing is to keep pushing. We fall down but we get up. I’m rooting for you…you got this!
Thank you, CaNesha! Yes, we fall down but we keep getting up. Let’s go! Thanks for the encouragement!
