I read a definition of strength the other day that blew me away:
"The capacity to do something. An inherent capacity to manifest energy, to endure, and to resist."
I love knowing that with my divine nature comes this incredible INHERENT capacity! I don't have to create it. It is already a part of who I am. I call it forth through faith and prayer and action. Fear weakens my ability to access my strength. I can let go of fear by exercising faith in my Savior to call forth the strength I have been given to fulfill the measure of my creation.
Lots of choices in front of me right now are triggering ginormous fear monsters. They aren't just the big ones like testifying in a criminal case (this morning). It's the little nagging negative thoughts that pile up, telling me I can't...
So, I'm going to remember who I am and why I am here. I refuse to give up or stand quietly in a corner hoping no one can see or hear me. I choose to speak up and speak out...even if it means I get a few stones thrown at me. I'll just chuck 'em at those monsters!
