Today I finished my first triathlon. God has used these past 9 weeks to teach me to believe in myself again. He is the one who has defined who I am. I am able, righteous, a new creation, strong, and loved. This is not my doing, but is all due to the shed blood of Christ. His name receive glory and honor in my life and amongst all people, forever and ever.
If you feel like you are stuck and you cannot escape sin or life’s circumstances look to Christ. “Faith is total dependence on God. And this God-dependence only begins when self-dependence ends. And self-dependence only comes to its end, with some of us, when sorrow, suffering, affliction, and broken plans and hopes bring us to a place of self-helplessness and defeat. And then we find that we have learned the lesson on faith; to find our tiny craft of life rushing onward to a blessed victory of life and power and service only dreamt of in the days of our fleshly strength and self-reliance.” James McConkey
