Last night, after going to bed, I can say that it was one of the worst nights ever…as I tossed from side to side in pain. You know…it’s amazing what goes through our minds at this time…thoughts that keep reminding us that we have a lot to do the following day…and oh…how we really need our rest.
By time I had reached morning…the pain was still with me and I was feeling very tired and drained, from a night that I hadn’t experienced before. As I sat on the edge of the bed, I was debating, as to whether I should get up and do my ministry work or whether I should just go back to bed. For some reason…a feeling came over me, to get up and get going; so I did.
Even though I felt as if I was dragging through my morning, I began to feel a strength gradually kicking in; that actually caused me to do more than what I had first planned to do. As I kept saying…“Oh Lord”…God must have interpreted those words, as a desperate cry for help because from those moments on; His strength stepped in and overrode my weakness.
In Isaiah 26:3-4, we read… “He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord! 4 Trust in the Lord God always, for in the Lord Jehovah is your everlasting strength.” I came to see that the more I turned to God…the more He came in my direction and strengthened me, with no ordinary strength…but an everlasting strength…one that helped me to accomplish every little thing that I put my hands to do…Praise God!
