“No emotional pain, no spiritual gain. Let’s not let the difficulty of our circumstances weaken us.” – #ToddCPitttman
Yep I Said It!
…and so did Isaiah 43:2 (NLT) “When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.”
“We’re about to go through a seven-day workout together and training starts right now! Whether we are trying to make it through a difficult season at this very moment, or we need to get our spiritual workout on for the drama that’s about to come, on this first day of training we are going to strengthen our minds to recognize that no matter how hard times are, God will carry us through. Who needs protein powder to strengthen our muscles when the scriptures remind us that ain’t no water deep enough, no river long enough, nor no fire hot enough to take away the power of God in our lives! Every financial struggle we face, every employment challenge we battle, every health condition we conquer, even every addiction relapse we experience is preparing us to be stronger. On this first day of training let’s recognize that He uses our challenges in life to produce greater strength and enduring faith. But we have to allow that production to occur and we do that by telling ourselves that our pain has a purpose…we just have to stop wasting energy wondering why – THAT WASTED ENERGY MY FRIEND, IS WHAT MAKES US WEAK!” – #ToddCPittman
