When discouraged, don’t look inside yourself to find courage.
When your frustrated because you are not strong enough, don’t look inside yourself to find strength.
When feel like you are tired, don’t look to yourself to muster up the energy you need.
Look to God.
Ask for help.
Admit the reality of where you are.
And let go of the shame laid upon your shoulders for not being courageous enough, strong enough or good enough to be who God has called you to be.
You were never meant to do it alone.
You were created for relationship. For give & take and honest conversation.
To love and be loved.
Real strength is not pretending you are strong or holding it all together or faking it until you make it.
Real strength is being brave enough to admit the truth out loud.
Real strength is living the truth out loud.
I am not strong. I am weak. I can’t do this on my own, I depend on God.
