The Struggle is Real!by john starkis Pastor
I'm so sick of myself. Have you ever thought that?
Have you ever struggled with something you thought you were supposed to get over years ago? It keeps putting its lies and deception into your life.
The more I minister to people, the more I realize that, although it expresses itself in different ways, we all struggle with the same basic things. And one of the greatest gifts God gives us when we go through a struggle is empathy. Empathy is not the gift of, "Man, I feel for you." It's, "I feel you."
You see, the two most important words you can ever say to someone who is struggling are not, "You should." Chances are, they already know what they should do. What they really need is for someone to say, "Me too." They need to understand that they are not the only one, they are not alone.
Today, I want you to hear, "Me too." We're in this struggle together. Jesus Himself knows what you are going through, and more than anything, He wants you to overcome within.
The very power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead now lives in you! You can overcome because He already has!
He indwells inside of you, you have the power and authority to move mountains in your life. It is all right there for you, you just have to use it and Know the power and authority given, to each of us. Resist the devil and he shall flee!
I'm Jesus name, Peace and Joy abode to you all the days.
Your friend in the struggle,
Pastor John C. Starkis
