I’m Strong Enough to Do THIS

“Just thinking about the Steve Harvey morning show this morning, and I’m so glad Steve Harvey set that woman straight. She said she was putting up with a man’s behavior because she is a Christian and that was her weakness. Hold up, Christianity is not a weakness. It teaches forgiveness, but anyone who knows me personally knows I can forgive you and walk away at the same time if I am being disrespected. Christianity is a strength. I am strong enough to bite my tongue and not let you bring me into my flesh. I am strong enough to walk away and not entertain foolishness. I am strong enough to forgive and not hold grudges.  I can speak to you and love you as if you did nothing wrong. I am also strong enough to trust God that he has someone who is tailor made for me.  So I don’t worry about the past.  I look towards the future.”  Written by Capitola Vaughn

She betta say that!

I didn’t actually hear this particular radio broadcast this morning, but if I had, I would probably have had the same reaction to this caller’s ignorant comment.  First of all, Christianity is NOT a weakness.  The world’s way is easy, but it takes real strength to walk according to the Word.  Our example, Jesus Christ was meek and humble, but He was definitely no punk!  To suffer such brutality and then to die a horrendous death for wrongs he did not commit is the epitome of strength.  And when the Holy Ghost came after Christ’s resurrection, he transferred His power and strength to us.  Maybe this caller needs to learn a little more about who she really is and who is inside of her–THE GREATER ONE.

Let’s prove that Christianity equals strength.  How has having Christ in your life helped you exhibit strength?  What are you strong enough to do?

    I’m strong enough to believe that what God has promised me (children, BMW, new house, book published, family members saved) will come to pass, even though I do not see it in the natural. I know it’s already done!

    I am strong enough to think b4 I react, so I conduct myself as a woman of God no matter what the enemy throws my way.

    My faith in Jesus Christ has given me the strength to step out and follow my dreams. I am confident that Jesus will see me through this time and allow me to become a successful engineer! And a wife and mother some day 🙂

    On a similar note, how do you feel about dating men with a different educational background than yours.I’m dating and my mom is very serious about me ONLY saying guys who have the same educational level I do. I don’t think it should be a definite determining factor.what happened to basic characteristics like respectful, ambitious, and outgoing?
