Julie). Throughout my childhood I always felt like I wasn't very pretty, I didn't have any special talents and I was not good at sports.
I was the kid running the wrong direction at sports day. The one who was so proud of her participation ribbon until someone else pointed out that only the "losers" got participation ribbons.
I was the little girl with mismatched clothes and an ugly boy haircut.
This attitude carried on through my teens and early 20's
I want to tell you that now I am a new creation.
I have a blessed life. (this post is not to brag but to show you the wonderful work God has done in me).
On Saturday October 10 I ran (the right direction) in a 5k race. It wasn't a marathon but it was important to me. I ran faster and further that I had in training. (I used the Couch to 5k program). God was there pushing me from behind. He was there as my strength.
Can't is a 4 letter word in our house).
So I want to encourage you. I want my words to motivate you. You can do it. You can throw off that thing that you previously thought you could not do. You can! Do not believe the lies. Seek the truth. Ask God to show you what is keeping you down.
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
