One of my all-time favorite movies is The Wizard of Oz.
As we follow each character’s search along the yellow brick road to find what they are lacking, it doesn’t take long for us to realize they all already had what they are searching for. Within their reach.
Glinda’s words are epic! “You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.
We’re just like Dorothy. In spite of our own insecurities we all have the power. We just have to learn it for ourselves. Sometimes it takes tremendous turmoil and adversity to bring us to the place we find our Oz. That place where we are willing to truly understand where our real power comes from.
It’s from within. Within our heart and our soul. it’s God living in us through His son and in the form of the Holy Spirit.
If any of you have been going through tremendous turmoil and adversity, think on these things. You have the power to overcome your demons. Those things that haunt you. Through the power of Christ.
I’ve experienced my share of turmoil. But I’m also experiencing my newfound share of power. From within. With a little hard work. With a little belief in myself. And with a whole lot of belief in God I am facing my demons. I’m bettering myself. I’m accepting no more shiny ruby slippers that look good on the outside.. There’s no such thing as magic. I’m learning to tap into my own power. And I am actually beginning to like who I am becoming. And so can you!
I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same Mighty power. Ephesians 1:19
