“When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3
Have you ever heard of “word prompt”? It is where you have a certain word for the new year. I have never done it nor even tried. Tonight, as I was browsing online, I saw a post about it. And I clicked on the link, out of curiosity or maybe boredom to some extent. After answering a few questions, it gave me my word for the coming year…BRAVE.
Is this a joke or what? This particular word, hit me big time. Like, someone threw a rock at me and hit me in the head.
Surely this is not a coincidence.
The past year has been a struggle on my part. The last few days consisted of doctor’s visits and aches and pains…physically, emotionally and mentally.
I have this cloud of doubts and fear hanging over my head and following me around that reminds me how weak I am, that I can’t do it. It seems like everything and every dreams and goals that I wanted to achieve, I never finish. I keep stepping back. I am not good and strong enough. This I believed, until now….
Maybe God knows I need this assurance.
That I need to be brave in Him. That I need to believe in Him more than ever. That I need to start believing in myself. That I need to move forward with Him. That in my moments of loneliness and weakness; whenever doubts take over and whenever I feel like I can’t do it and I am not good and strong enough……
“It’s in Christ that we find who we are and what we are living for.”
He is there…
Ahead of me.
I just have to believe.
And hold on to Him.
Be brave in Him.
And with Him.
“Not by my strength, but His.”
