Last week I took a Life Language test. It’s like a personality profile.
It says I’m hard on myself…ummmm, yeah. Knew that. Tell me something I don’t know! Lol.
Some people do NOT like what those profiles say about you!! Like they get MAD!
They told me one of “my strengths”.
It says Im ‘strong’. Awesome. Like strong how? Like a yard of onions??? Like an amazon???
Like if my kids get hurt, I’m like – “you’ll be ok! C’mon you can get back up. Dust it off! Good as new.” Kiss on the forehead. Hug it out and let’s roll!
My friend is like, “Let her cry a minute. Just allow her to be hurt a second.” I’m thinking – why???? Let’s fix this! There is so much fun to have!
I wish I was warmer, fuzzier, slower, softer, cuddlier, and cried a little more….
I’m not. I’m just strong. Guess the profile is right. But it says it’s a strength. Why does it feel like a weakness?
The enemy tries to get us to hate our strengths….our strengths? Yup.
The enemy will tell you over and over again – ‘people don’t like that about you. Dumb that down.’
‘You talk too much. You are SO bubbly.’
That’s not you? Then he says,
‘You’re so quiet. Do you ever say anything?’
CONDEMNATION no matter which way you are, no matter which way you try to be!
So guess what enemy!
Yes – I am strong. And if my friends are ever in a battle – it’s me they want with them. I will not quit. I will stay to the end.
If the enemy kicks, I stand up one more time. I am a warrior.
I am not ‘strong’ in a bad way, devil. I am strong in the LORD and the power of His might. (Eph 6:10)
I look like my daddy.
I AM my daddy’s child.
And by the way, my Father is GOD!
You officially have permission of the Most High God to embrace who YOU ARE in Him. To love your strengths and to lean on Him where you are weak. That is why He is here.
“..for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength).” 2 Corin 12:10 amp
