Believe in God, Believe in Yourself – You Don’t Suck

By Denise Miller Holmes

Please remember that whatever frustrations you may be experiencing now, God is with you. I am with you. YOU ARE CAPABLE.

In times of struggle, we are so tempted to say to ourselves, “I suck.”  I know, it’s what I used to say to myself, and still do when I’m in a particularly sticky situation.

But God created you as Competent. 

What does that mean? It means that, no matter what, you are capable of learning new skills. You are capable of improving. And, you are capable of persevering.

Embracing this as a belief is necessary if you are to overcome your current frustrations. God did not make you stupid. He made you Competent to learn and grow and overcome. 
Muhammad Ali said this best. “It’s lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself.”

Believe in God’s call. Believe in how He made you. Believe in yourself. It’s all good, baby!

Now, let’s face those challenges with joy in our bellies.
