We often dwell on yesterday, become frozen with fear today, and can be paralyzed by tomorrow. However, it is in our weakness that God demonstrates his power and his strength. God is the ultimate motivational speaker.

We are not just Christians who struggle through life. We are sons and daughters of God who are empowered from the inside with the Holy Spirit.
