You were strong enough to get this far, so you are strong enough to keep going.
Sometimes you can get run down and start thinking that you do not have what it takes to make it happen. Whatever the “it” is in YOUR life at this time.
This is a negative mindset that can come from pushing so hard, for so long, that in the middle of your fatigue, the enemy makes his entrance and announces to you, “Your best days are behind you…!” Then if you’re like me, you look behind you and groan.
The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in him, and I am helped. Psalm 28:7
I love how David is saying, “My strength comes from God and I am helped!” Notice he puts it in the past tense!!!
Sometimes we just need to change the way we are choosing to view a situation and CHOOSE to see them as an opportunity to show the strength that God gives us.
EXAMPLES OF ALTERNATE PERSPECTIVES:
· Instead of saying I’m not that dumb, say I’m smarter than that!
· If you are a klutz, choose to view it as opportunities to practice gracefulness 🙂
When you SAY my strength has already been purchased by God and I AM helped, then it changes everything about your mood AND your momentum.
So change your perspective and how you choose to view your life and you will find that although nothing has tangibly changed, in essence, EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED and life is just better!
