Discover Your Power – 002
I remember being in elementary school, and I was one of the top 2 readers in the whole school. Every semester, year after year, the results from the reading program would come out and it would go between me, and this one other kid. And I remember the nerves I would have as I waited to find out if I was the best reader, or if it was going to be him. I would sit in the big multipurpose room, on assembly day, sitting on the edge of my seat, hands twisting and knotting in my lap, gnawing on the inside of my cheek and hanging on every word the principal would say until he announced the winner of the accelerated reader program for the semester. Was I good enough to win???
Culture is constantly telling us what we should look, think like, and act like…. What clothes we should wear, what our homes should look like, how our children should behave… everything we see, think, feel, and hear is a reflection of our “good enough-ness”. Have you had enough of the never ending battle?
Before we can understand, claim, and live in the power that God has given us, we have to understand how we receive our power. This may also mean coming to terms with how we have defined power and where that definition is no longer serving us.

Have you ever felt powerless? Struggled with finding the strength to fight the battles you are up against?
