Grow From Within

No matter who you are or where you are in life, we are all striving to get from point A to point B. This is often referred to as a breakthrough. We just want to get to the other side or to break through that glass ceiling. During these times, many nights are spent in prayer and meditation where we ask God for clarity, a sign, the answer, etc.. We question are we strong enough, smart enough, or talented enough. The go-to approach is to look outside ourselves for help. But, we often forget that God has given us everything we need. The talent, strength, and smarts are already there. We just don’t believe in ourselves…which means that we don’t really believe in God’s greatness. If we really believed how great God is, there would be no doubt in our abilities to do and achieve whatever we want. Nothing would hold us back…no relationship, family, no job, formal education (or lack of)…nothing. All of the abilities we need are placed in us, like a seed. If you water and care for it (believe), it will grow…strong enough to break through concrete. If we neglect (not believe) …nothing happens and death and destruction will ensue. It may not happen quickly, but it will happen. So, look within yourself, because you have already been blessed…whether you know it or not
