21 Apr From Inadequate to Limitless
Have you ever felt inadequate? Watch this week’s video and see how Ashley explains how without Christ we’re like a cellphone with a dead battery…
Feelings of inadequacy can run rampant in women’s minds. Women constantly feel not good enough. You name it, a woman has probably felt it. Not pretty enough, not thin enough, not smart enough, not rich enough, not a good enough mother, not a good enough wife. And the list goes on and on.
Inadequacy has been a consistent struggle in my life and recently, The Lord has been taking me on a journey that has made me realize that inadequacy really has no place in my life. Those feelings result in nothing good or productive.
A Phone Out of Battery
Consider a phone that has run out of battery. It has tons of potential, but on its own, it is completely inadequate. But, as soon as you plug that phone into to a power source with a charger, it becomes limitless. You can call China on that thing, install all types of apps and get connected. Because the phone’s capabilities have more to do with its power source that it’s own battery.
You see, we’re the same way. Like the phone that has run out of battery, we’re inadequate on our own. The truth is that we’re not good enough, that’s why Christ came in the first place. The great news is that while it is true that we’re not enough on our own, we’re not on our own. With Christ’s strength our lives are limitless. In His hands, we have limitless opportunities. We’re completely free and forgiven.
