Whatcha going to do with this thing in your way? Ignore it? Wait for someone else to move it? What IS your thing, your TIRE? Your past? A hurt? An unseen goal? An illness? A lost dream? An addiction?
Lift it UP.
Jump OVER it.
Move that thing out of the way and in doing so, realize that YOU are stronger for tackling it. Your muscles ache, your arms burn. You are alive.
Now let's get down to it.
Genesis 50:20 tells us
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
I don't know what your TIRE looks like. I don't know if you are jumping over it, ignoring it, or moving that bad boy out of the way. All I know is what I did with my own TIRE, and how it made me stronger.
My TIRE showed up about five years ago. Seemingly unsurmountable issues starting festering in ways that were quickly proving the enemy was trying to take not only me down, but my girls, my marriage and my step children. I COULDN'T move that tire. I didn't know why. I was anything but strong. On a certain day in April of 2012 that I purposely forget the date of, my life, and the life of my family, changed drastically. In all areas of my life, the Enemy had won. I was defeated. Let's fast forward... five and half years later, I am able to sit here and know that it was the people in my life that chose to stick around and the friends and mentors that rescued me and delivered me safely to a rock of certainty and to a place of absolute conviction that I had a message to share. Not only did I lift that tire out of the way, I used it to make me STRONG. That day was meant to destroy me.., my girls, my marriage, my step children, but instead it took a simple twist through the years that created some strength, gumption, endurance and confidence that I would have otherwise never found.
I don't know what's in your way today, and I don't know what you've tried to do to overcome it but I do know for me, an unmistakable faith took over, friends steered me in the right direction and my own strength became strong enough to move that junk out of the way! And YOU can find that STRENGTH too. I am here to help you find it.
