When you choose to acknowledge rather than live in denial you are stronger than you know. It is not easy to admit areas where we need to grow, that will require hard work and won’t necessarily be pleasurable.
I enjoy growing, but I prefer to grow in my strengths rather than weaknesses. However, I’m thankful for the growth that comes out of time spent in the trenches.
I know my weaknesses and know my strengths. Facing my weaknesses and choosing to trust is hard and painful. Asking for help is not easy; especially, when help is needed in an area you’ve been hurt in previously. Take courage! Healing can happen in a moment or through process over time. Don’t give up before the miracle happens. Keep asking, seeking and knocking. God wants to give you the courage to face your fears and to live a life filled with joy no matter your circumstances.
My prayer is for you and I to experience the fruit of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Take heart! Do not be afraid! God is for us! He will help us! Trust in his ways! I can’t say it will be easy, but choosing to face your fears, will take courage and strength to persevere. Choose to trust, you don’t grow alone. Look back on your life, how much have you grown?
