Just saw the Samson movie and was blown away when I remembered that he took out 1,000 solders with a jawbone… One Thousand! I also saw how difficult it must have been keeping all those vows he was called to; abstaining from wine, touching the dead, cutting his hair.
It really motivated me and I can’t believe I’m saying this, since I haven’t gone three months with giving back into PMO, but I really want to go 1,000 days without it! That’s pretty much three years, give or take a few months. Again this is insane for me to even say because I’ve been trying to get past the three month mark for the past three years, it just wouldn’t make sense for me to suddenly do a year, let alone three. But single handedly taking out 1,000 solders doesn’t make sense, so why can’t I do the same with God on my side!?
I know this sounds crazy and impossible, but I feel like I need to learn how to depend on the Lord, I’ve been minimizing how great He is. After all, He is the God of the universe, what’s three years to Him? If you’ve been putting God in a box, then I invite you to join me, even if it is just your prayers and encouragement.
