Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am
– Philippians 4:13
This is the verse that I cling on to when I’m having a bad day or I start to doubt or question who I am. This is the verse that pulls me out of my little pit of self-pity.
It’s normal to have those days – admittedly I have them very often, but it’s so important that you can get yourself out of them. Don’t make those days your every day. Don’t base your life on self-doubt.
This verse reminds me that it’s not about self. If it was about myself and my abilities, I would well and truly be a mess. But thankfully it’s about Him, the One who made me.
On those days I read this verse as a reminder to take my eyes off of myself and fix them on the One it’s all about.
