Ephesians 6:10
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

I've been feeling a lot of pressure lately and the other day I called my dad crying, trying to hold it together but sort of wanting to give up.
Earlier in the day, I worked out with a little boy, Sammy.  He was following me around the gym with his 8lb weights in hand.  We started doing push-ups and he stopped and looked at me and said, "You're a strong girl",  He repeated that twice to me while we were doing our push-ups.   I didn't think much of it until I was in my car crying to my dad.  I just heard his little voice saying to me, "You're a strong girl."
I don't know what you're going through, or what the enemy is trying to throw your way.  What I do know is that the Lord has huge, awesome plans for your life!
I like Ephesians 6:10 because you're commanded to BE STRONG.  It's not always an easy thing to do, but you get to make the decision.  You get to decide if you're going to tap into the power the Lord has placed on the inside of you, or if you're going to give up.  You get to decide if you're going to rejoice always, or if you're going to give into the temptation to complain.
Make the decision to be strong, to fight the good fight of faith!
YOU ARE STRONG!  When you don't feel like it, listen for the Lord's voice, He's telling you the same thing Sammy told me, "You're a strong girl."...or boy...
