Pain is real. Agony is real. Trauma is real. How grueling and tormenting life can be. How raw are the pain, actions and words of others. But must we carry the load of it ? How long will we grieve and be bitter? There is power beyond our condition. Let it go. Be free.
Dunamis is power to be our unique, original self, walking, functioning and operating with quiet confidence and strength, wisdom, power and insight. When I operate through, and function in, God’s kind of power, dunamis, there is an extraordinary peace I’ve come to know. It’s not that I won’t feel angry, irritated, frustrated, and weighed down. After all, I am human. It is not that I will never hurt again, or be challenged by the everyday grind that life brings. However, this peace is the kind that settles in our spirits, souls, minds, and bodies.
It is knowledge that, no matter what is happening around us, we have nothing to lose, because we have God and His the ultimate power working in us and watching over us, protecting us and the things that matter to us. Even when in agony and we cry, “ Why?” We still feel peace beyond our comprehension. We still feel power beyond our imagination and over our situation. It is quiet power, peaceful confidence, in and through God.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. ~ Psalm 91:15 (KJV)
Use all of your pain as a catapult into victory, turn your insecurity into creative power, and your anger to find your purpose and excel in your gifts and talents. Call upon God and draw strength and courage. Break out of your depression and bitterness, and aim for your divine destiny. Zone in on who you can become, work towards that person, and refuse to remain in that suppressed and worn down condition.
Work on forgiving yourself and others. Drop the dark and heavy weights you’ve been carrying all these years. Realize it’s not worth it, Take flight and work on, and walk in your unique, original self. Stride in your quiet power and peaceful confidence. Do not allow trauma, stigma and dark experiences to crush you into numb, zombie-like nonentity, leading you down into all kinds of depressing and crooked paths.
You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. ~ Psalm 139:16 (NLT)
God created you with power and a plan. Walk in them.
