Yesterday was cleaning day for Diane and I have to admit that there can be times, when I don’t want to clean my house…and that isn’t because I don’t like to do the cleaning; but rather, it’s because I struggle with my legs and the chronic pain I face, from day to day.
It’s amazing how I can get up in the morning and think on what needs to be done…and at the same time…allow my pain or my leg problems to dictate what I feel I can and cannot do. I’m sure we all think that way from time to time; but the only thing bad about that; is that before we know it…we have talked ourselves out of experiencing the strength of a great God; who can override, what we just don’t feel capable of doing.
In Philippians 4:13, we read… “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” This Bible verse does not say that we can only do certain things, through Christ’ strength; but rather, it says that we can do ALL things…every little thing…from the smallest thing to the greatest thing.
Lately, I have truly been working with God, to focus even more on His strength, rather than my weakness…and I have come to see that when I lean on His strength, rather than my own so-called strength; then I not only accomplish what needs to be done…but even more than what I had first planned to do.
No matter what you’re facing today…don’t let these moments control you; but instead, lean on a strong God…and I KNOW that He will walk you through these moments of darkness, into a light that can bring hope back into your life!
