It's not going to work out the way you expected. Nothing turns out the way you plan. That's okay. It isn't our plan that we should be concerned about. It's His!
If you're like me than you've struggled in and out with not feeling at your peak. Things happen that hold up our progress. If we were playing a video game this would be figured as "part of the game." Let's look at these challenges that way. Part of 'our' game.
If you were in a game right now what level would you be facing? Level one or 10 with the monster? Whatever part you're facing just know that it will be okay. You will be able to overcome these obstacles and/or fears.
The past few times I've had physical therapy I became emotional. At first I couldn't understand why, but now it's become clear. Because I'm being pushed to the next level. The point when you give all you got until you can't move anymore. When my arm feels like rubber and my body has to lie on the mat and breath for a few minutes before trying the next exercise. The breaking times.
These are the moments that are the toughest and change you. Do I face them or run away?
What about your challenges? Are you ready to face them or run? Some seasons are uncomfortable but necessary. These are the times when I realize that it isn't about my strength but His. Will Jesus' strength let me down? Do I believe that the man walked when He said "get up and walk?"
Moments like these are difficult because we don't know, until we step forward. That's the key. Moving forward.
Whatever you're facing know there IS a way to move forward. To get closer to your goal. Keep moving. Don't quit! (Psalm 23)
May this message be a Blessing in your lives and mine!
In Jesus' name, Amen
