I believe I have stated here before that I am a Christian. That means most of my ideologies as a person are based on my beliefs. Just felt I needed to put that out there.
I woke u today to the late Whitney Houston’s song ‘I didn’t know my own strength’ and that is the only line that has been playing over and over in my head. I guess there was a message encoded in it that I was to decode,which I did.
I don’t know where it all started but I do suffer from a lack of confidence at times. I often think I need someone’s approval or support for me to do something I am very much capable of doing. Words of affirmation is clearly my number 1 love language. LOL.
This has been a huge debate between God and I as I always end up questioning why He allows certain things in my life or why He gives me certain duties. And I have been beating myself up lately over some water that is now under the bridge, thinking that my big break was swept away with the water. God somehow has been trying to reach out but I have been too distracted and I guess He was like ‘Enough is enough! We need to get this child from this space so she can go on to do the great things I have in store for her!” Music speaks to me and He created me so He’s privy to this information and so ‘I didn’t know my own strength’ happened.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. That’s where my strength comes from and me doubting myself, means I am doubting my source of strength which is not cool at all. So there has to be a paradigm shift in my thought process and yes when I look back at the things I have been able to achieve,when at times the odds were against me, I am pretty hard core and awesome,when I get my confidence boost; like popeye and his canned spinach. LOL.
The approval you and I need to do the awesome things we have been created to do is already given by God the Creator. All we have to do is launch out and give our best and we will be amazed at what we can do. Whatever you believe is your truth, can or can’t, you are correct whichever way. It is up to you to decide which team you want to play for. And I know, at times we wish if only so and so could be here or if only he could support me… Well guess what, if wishes were horses, we all know what would happen. So, you have to be your No. 1 fan. Your own cheer leading squad. If others join in, well and good. If the don’t, it is still OK because you got you and heaven’s got you. How much more backing do you need anyway? LOL.
My call to action is for you and me to go out into the world daily and pour ourselves out because we are more than able to do all that life throws at us and do it exceptionally. Only you can make your dreams come true, so you better get to work. And how about deciding that your best and only your best is what life will always get from you?
Know your own strength and be amazed at just how much you are capable of. (Note to self).
