Those that know me best know I am a mess in my own strength! Actually, I say that all the time, but I don’t think they really believe me!
I really am, in my own strength I want to eat every bad food, I don’t want to exercise, I don’t want to do housework, and all I WANT to be is selfish!
In God’s strength my mind is transformed. I want to eat and exercise to take care of the body God has given me. I want to love my husband and children sacrficially, never thinking about my own agenda. I want to help others and give to others everything I have without limits.
The craziest part is the first version of me, in my own strength, is miserable! That version complains internally and externally all day, is exhausted, stressed and worried. That person is never satisfied and constantly wishing and dreaming of more or better!
In God’s strength it is effortless. He gives me a peace, love, and joy beyond understanding. I no longer am trying but trusting and life in that place is truly amazing!
How can you remember and stop to pray throughout the day to check your heart?
#plankandpray Challenge I posted on instagram
So get down in a plank and pray all through out the day! Set a goal as often as you can for as long as you can and keep starting fresh to choose God’s strength each time!
Grab your bible or a bible app and read 1 Peter 4…here is a little verse from it
“The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.” 1 Peter 4:7
