The more I seek God the more I realize the change I want to see needs to start with me. I am so very blessed in the midst of my storms, yet I pass over acknowledgment of God’s merciful grace by living in yesterday or tomorrow and focusing on the storms creating havoc throughout. All the Lord wants me to do is be right here, right now, in this moment, He is with me in my present.
- My greatest battle lies within. Control over one’s own emotions, desires and actions often defines the success or the failure of a promise. I work to build self-control so that I may better myself and the world around me.
- I seek to live a life where what I believe, what I say and what I do are all in harmony. I should treat others the same way I think I should to be treated. As I work to be honest with others, I cannot forget that I must also be honest with myself. The truth is often both hard to deliver and desperately needed.
- I must be willing to accept personal responsibility for what I have done and what I have failed to do – both in what is good and what is not. Accountability helps me understand that my decisions have consequences. I help hold others accountable, but before I become too upset with the broken promises of others, I remember that I too have weaknesses.
This verse sits on my heart and allows me to “dance in the rain”, because God loves me and has never left me, rejected me, forsaken me or stopped blessing me. I’m learning more and more why I am so strong. Thank God.
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9-11
