We look around and we see so much of what our culture calls strength among our friends, family, our role models, almost everyone it seems. They let things roll off them, they don’t take everything so personally, they walk away without looking back.
They make everything look so much easier than the way it feels to us.
What if you could look at it another way?
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 defines real love. Ask yourself these questions:
- Are you patient with each other?
- Are you kind to each other?
- Are you never envious of each other?
- Do you never boast to or about each other?
- Is your relationship characterized by humility?
- Are you never rude to each other?
- Are you not self-seeking?
- Are you not easily angered with each other?
- Do you keep no record of wrongs?
- Are you truthful with each other?
- Do you protect each other?
- Do you trust each other?
It starts from all the cultural messages we’ve already received from the time we first appeared as little girls wearing our hearts on our sleeves, with our fragile self-esteem.
The problem is when we carry on the pattern that’s become so ingrained in us of pretending we’re not who we are, of acting out roles that were never ours to play. We set ourselves up for disappointment and failure trying to show the world – and everyone we’ve ever felt the need to prove ourselves to – that we’re so much more than our feelings, our emotions, and everything else that we’ve been told we shouldn’t be. It’s no wonder you can’t see your strengths for what they are.
So now you have experienced being hurt, being let down and given so much of yourself to the exhaustive process of being single, dating, maintaining a relationship, getting to the altar, separating and even divorcing . Woooo…… WE GO THROUGH ALOT….
Let’s be honest, some break up’s can be brutal and as a result, you have the hidden wounds displayed on your heart. None of us are are exempt. Let’s take a look at Mariah Carey and her ex-James Packer Break-up.. and she’s still looking for Mr. Right Again!!!
~Can you take a little leap of Faith?
In Romans 4:21, it is written “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform”
~Can you believe with full confidence that whatever you have gone through, has prepared you for this very moment?~
~Can you try, just for even a day, to see this side of you as a strength instead of a weakness?
You can do this. I know you can.
