Sylvester Stallone once said, "When you're scared, when you're hanging on, when life is hurting you, then you're going to see what you're really made of." We all have those times when we feel like we are just hanging on. Our heads may hang low as we trudge forward in spite of some pain or injustice we are dealing with in our lives. As we move forward, we may learn what we are really made of, but, more importantly, we can learn the power of our Creator!
There are times in our lives when we feel down and out, but that doesn't mean we should just give up. Instead of searching for ways to excuse ourselves and give up, we should turn to God. God will be our shield and our protector. He will give us strength and guidance. When we feel like hanging our heads, we can be assured that God will lift our heads. We can learn that what we are made of is faith in God and benefactors of His power, grace, and mercy. With our heads held high, we will see God's glory and presence in our lives!
Turn to God and hold your head up high in His glory and power!
Thank You for always being there no matter what I am facing. Help me to always hold my head up high and to see Your glory. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
