Hello everyone! I hope that your day is off to a great start! I guess we all can say that we have made it through another week…and praise God for that!
As I'm sitting here today…thinking on how I made it through each day of this week; my mind is being taken back to one particular day…a day that I can say that I thought I'd never make it through. I've truly come to see that no matter who we are or what we do…we all live with the struggles and challenges of this life; because we live in an imperfect world; and I'll tell you…Wednesday was definitely one of those days for me. With all the work that needed to be done that day, I was going pretty much straight, from sunup to sundown. I don't think that I have called out for God's help, as much as I did that day. In fact, when I ended the day…I knew without a doubt that I had only made it through that day because of Him.
After finishing the day, I was spending a few quiet moments alone with God…and as I did, He led me to a beautiful Bible verse in Psalm 73:26, and we read… "My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever." As I was reading this verse, I began to feel so connected to each word; because my health does attempt to fail me at times and my heart can experience overwhelming moments, which can definitely make my spirit droop low; but one thing I do know…God is my strength during these times of weakness. In fact, it seems that just at the moment, when I feel like giving up…something deep within my spirit is wanting me to remain standing…and do you know what that is…that is God's strength at work through our weakness. Now that is amazing!
You know…there can be times, when our minds and bodies become weak…to the place where we feel that we can no longer hold unto life as we once did; but when God's strength kicks in…it's as though we have been put into overdrive. I know that on Wednesday, I felt that very much in my day. At the moment when I felt that I was about to throw in the towel and quit everything; God saw that and He stepped in and led me in a direction that I could have never gone on my own, during those difficult moments of struggle.
I don't know about you; but there can be times when I say to myself…if I didn't have all these health issues; then my life would be so much easier; but you know what…if I didn't have all these health issues; then maybe I wouldn't have any reason to call out to God for help and lean on Him. Yes…life can be difficult…believe me, I know; but like this verse says in Psalm 73:26… "God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. Just think…when we have accepted Jesus to live within our hearts; then He is ours forever…for whatever we may need.
Maybe today, you are a little overwhelmed with life and you feel as if you're about ready to throw in the towel and quit everything. Maybe this week has been a hard and difficult one for you…to the place where you are tired of this life. May I come down to your level and encourage you today, by saying…"It's going to be alright." Maybe you aren't able to see it this way right now; but I also remember moments, when I wasn't able to see it this way either; but a time did come, when God stepped in and made everything much better. You see, I believe that He is truly watching everything that concerns us…and once a desperate cry for help reaches His ear; that is when I believe that He will move heaven and earth, to come and help us. In fact, the only reason why I can say this to you today; is because I have lived it.
Lord Jesus…as we close this time with you today, my prayer is that you will reach down to the one who is broken in spirit…the one who is overwhelmed with life…and the one who feels like giving up. May your arms of love become strength to them today…and may they truly know that everything is going to be just fine. Thank you Jesus, so much…Amen!
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS know that when your health and heart faileth you; that God will be your strength! Take care…have a great weekend and I will look forward to another visit with you on Monday morning!
God bless you so much!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
