HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OUR COMMUNITY!

You Have What It Takes

You believe certain things about yourself.

And it’s crippling your ability to live.

Let me explain.

We’ve been told things over the course of our life and no matter how grossly incorrect they may be, we believe them. Maybe because someone who was supposed to guide you and protect you and validate you spoke them. Or maybe because no one ever guided you or protected you or validated you and so you never knew any better.

It has become your name; loser, quitter, ugly, stupid, disappointment…

Regardless of the explicit or implicit nature of the name, you believe it about yourself. And this time of uncertainty is exasperating it.

You do not believe you have what it takes to come through this. So you huddle up and weather the storm, praying for it to stop. Hoping you’ll be able to see the other side.

Part of the reason I love what we do at Strong Tower is that we provide a stage where people can physically see a manifestation of their strength and resilience.

All the hard work to get a pull up and when you put that stupid chin over the stupid bar your entire world changes. The view is different from up there, right? You take it all in for a moment before returning your feet to earth, but your spirit stays up there.

It’s in moments like those that you believe that you have what it takes.

You dive underneath the bar, locking it out overhead. You pause for just a moment to make sure you have balance. And as you start to rise, you smile. You’re not even standing up yet and you know you’ve done it. That beautiful, almost effortless snatch.

It’s in moments like those that you believe that you have what it takes.

Burning in your lunges. Acid in your veins. You look up at the clock and you’ve done it. You not only beat the time cap but you’ve done it faster than you ever have before. The discomfort subsides for a moment as the reality washes over you. That’s a personal best.

It’s in moments like those that you believe that you have what it takes.

But, here is the catch. Every battle, every achievement, every podium moment becomes just another high to chase because they just don’t last. Regardless of the victory, there is still no validation.

You still don’t believe that you have what it takes. That is just not your name.

Write this next part down:

You have what it takes. You can conquer. You can overcome.

Now read it again, slower.

One of my favorite quotes from the Bible is in the second chapter of the book of Revelation.

“Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches. I’ll give the sacred manna to every conqueror; I’ll also give a clear, smooth stone inscribed with your new name, your secret new name.”

Revelation 2:17

I’ll also give a clear, smooth stone inscribed with your new name, your secret new name.

Think about that. A name that is not loser, quitter, ugly, stupid, disappointment…

A name that is conqueror, overcomer, beautiful, brilliant, leader…

You have what it takes for this time. You have what it takes for your family. You have what it takes to chase that dream in your heart. You have what it takes for today.

These are tough times. But you can do tough things. You are Strong Tower Strong and you have what it takes.
