I had a friend that I really trust tell me that she felt that God was saying I have untapped strength a couple of years ago. I thought wow, that's really cool! Too bad it's total scheissbrot! I dismissed it immediately. It was too difficult for me to believe.
Months later I was praying with some friends that I also trust very much and one of them told me something similar. He said he could see me like a lion. He said a lion isn't afraid of anything or anyone. a lion just is.
I asked God to confirm this "lion" thing. He reminded me of the first thing he said to me months earlier about untapped strength. I've run a Marathon since then so maybe there could be something to this. But it is still difficult for me to get a hold of because I know all of my failures.
Just today yet another friend told me that I am much stronger than I realise. It hit me really hard this time.
Why is it so difficult for us to see the truth? To see ourselves as God sees us? I think we all want to, so why is it so fricken difficult?
