It’s all on you….

No pressure or anything, but for whatever situation you’re in, it’s pretty much solely on you to change it. You can (and should) ask God for help and guidance, but in the end, you’re the one who has to live with the results of whatever decisions you make.

I’ll grant that you may not be entirely responsible for your situation. Some drunk driver could have T-boned your car and ruined a promising athletic career. A parent could have mentally or physically abused you, leading you to seek escape in drugs. There are situations that are caused by other people, things outside your control.

But here’s something that’s always in your control: what you do about it. You’re not powerless. If you’re a Christian, you have the power of the almighty God on your side to help you change. You don’t need any more power than that (and couldn’t get any more anyway).

Right now, you have a choice: decide to change or accept that you’re not really as dissatisfied as you think you are or want others to think you are. You may be able to blame others for your current situation, but you have only yourself to blame if you decide to let their actions completely defeat you.

Life is hard. You’re going to get knocked down. People are going to hurt and betray you. Things outside your control will happen to you.

None of that matters half as much as what you do when these things happen. Are you going to give up or are you going to regroup, improve, get a better strategy, and try again? You have God as your ally, mentor, and trainer. Trust in Him and you can’t help but win.

Be Strong. Act Like Men.
