Finding God's Goodness

Week Eighteen. Fortitude to Love. Knowing I’m not God

Month Five. Fortitude to love myself, expands my hope and kindness

My Lord, My God.

These are four of the most powerful words I can say.  In our throwaway culture and a culture of lies, it’s easy for me to get paralyzed and overwhelmed by fear. This is exactly where Satan, the father of all lies, wants me. Evil constantly whispers the lie that things are hopeless.

Who doesn’t want the world to be a better place, but it’s challenging to know where to begin to help. And my personality type leads me to want to fix it all overwhelming me at times. But as I surrender to God, my Lord and My Savior, my fear dissolves. I live in the love of God’s promises and hope. Peace lives in my heart, allowing me to love myself and bring that love to the world.

Be not afraid or dismayed…the battle is not yours but God’s.

2 Chronicles 20:15

Lord, thank You for making me decide to surrender to You.
