It generally takes an intentional mind shift to overcome your obstacle.
We must go from an “I can’t…” to an “I will…” attitude because “I will” shows determination; it is a powerful choice made by a very powerful person…
That person is YOU!
I am not just talking about the major traumas in life, I am also talking about the everyday struggles, like anxiety.
I have suffered from anxiety for much of my life, and I remember thinking, Why can’t I just be normal like everyone else? Why do I have to suffer from anxiety? Why can’t I just be normal?
But instead of taking on that victim mentality and believing the lie that something was wrong with me, I determined not to carry it as my identity and ask God for His strategy to beat it.
If we ask, He will indeed give it to us. It may be simple things like memorizing scripture or taking a supplement that helps keep you calm in times of anxiety or listening to a song that helps you sleep.
The strategy doesn’t have to be elaborate. Honestly, it’s usually pretty practical. God is a practical God. He is simple and straightforward, we sometimes want to complicate Him, but that isn’t often His way.
Instead of taking on that victim mentality and believing the lie that something was wrong with me, I determined not to carry it as my identity and ask God for His strategy to beat it.
He’s always faithful to give us a plan to win. But we have to ask, and we have to listen.
So…what obstacles are you ready and willing to overcome?
