This year I have no doubt I needed strength-not physical strength, although I have felt weak in my body, but strength from the word of God. It has sustained me. God is my ever present help.

Starting Redefined Courage has been an absolute journey of dependence on the Lord and when I depend and not trust in my own self- Man does God just show up and show out. I could name so many instances where God told me to keep going, don't give up!  If any of you have ever trained for something giving up in the middle of your training will NOT prepare you for the race/game/competition. Friends that is what we are doing- we are running the race of life and our fuel is the Word. It may get tough! There were days I would cry myself to sleep because absolutely nothing was falling into place and then there were days that every prayer I prayed was answered. In all of this God showed me that in Him is where my strength comes from and as I have leaned in and let Him do what He does best {lead and guide } I have gained strength to move forward.

Sweet friend continue to look for and to God in your day! He is always working and He is for you! I am not quite sure what it is you are going through or have gone through but I pray you can find strength in the Creator who knows and loves you just the way you are-Beautiful! Special! Smart! Capable! and Strong!

"God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble." Psalm 46:1 NLT
