DAY 13: JUST BE MY STRENGTH

 

Would you believe me if I said when you are at your weakest physically that you are at your strongest spiritually?

In 2 Corinthians 12:10 it says,” That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

You may be going through spells of weakness or withdrawals while on this fitness journey.  Your body is used to that morning cup of coffee and honey bun, or that Pepsi at lunch.  But I challenge you to stay strong and be of good courage.   When we began this journey Tiffany and I said that it would not be easy, but it would be worth it.  See it’s when we are at our weakest point and in our most difficult situations that we rely on our Heavenly Father the most.  When we remove self and insert Him, then and only then is God able to show His strength within us. 

So when you feel like you are missing those unhealthy things, or you are doing the workout of the day and it gets tough, ask God to “Just Be My Strength," and remember that you are in just the right place for God’s strength to show up and take you through to the next level.
