Do your imperfections or what you think are imperfections keep you from really plowing forward and setting BIG goals for yourself? If so, you’re not alone. Insecurities hold LOTS of people back. The problem is that we are way to focused on what we think we are not or what we see as lack. If we could only learn to focus on all that Jesus is, we would have a LOT more security in our own gifts and talents because we would realize that they are gifts from God. He gave each of us our own unique set of gifts, talents and abilities. Only when we realize that these are all used and performed in His strength and not our own will we really have the confidence to plow forward boldly.
If you’re like me you have spent many years being unsure of how good you are. Probably because you have spent far too many hours comparing yourself to others with similiar gifts. This will get you nowhere fast! We have to learn to accept who God created us to be, how He created us to use our gifts and trust in His timing as He teaches us how to develop them.
YOU are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G – at who you are and at what you do, if you are using what God (or your mama) gave you! How do I know this? Becasue there is no one else just like you, that does what you do, just the way that you do it. That is amazing!
Here is my BIGGEST point of this post – Ready? – Where you are weak He is strong!
Whatever it is you think you lack or aren’t good enough at, God’s got that covered. He is in the business of using imperfect people with imperfect lives to do wonderful, amazing things! I truly believe that when we are pursuing our God-given abilities and talents there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
Repeat it...Where I am weak, He is strong….Where I am weak, He is strong…Where I am weak, He is strong.
If you took a minute to repeat that and really took in what it means, there is probably a thought flotaing through your heart and your mind right now. This is what you need to surrender to Him. He’s got this. Step out in faith and trust in His abilities.
That’s my two cents for the day.
God’s not done working in you and showing you how much He loves you! Grab your free pages from my new book The Power of Resting and take your next step into freedom! Grab them here 😉
Keep it real ~
Being loved by Him, with you,
