Hello everyone...and a "Happy Saturday" to you! I sure hope that your weekend is off to a good start! It's a beautiful morning here, with a slight breeze in the air...and plenty of sunshine! You know...it's so easy to be happy, when the sun is shining and everything is going our way; but what happens, when the rain is pouring within our hearts and life seems to be going a different direction; then what we first thought?
I truly believe that these off days we experience are a test...to see if we depend on a good day, to make us happy...or if we can be happy all the time...knowing that God is there to pick up the slack and be our strength during the tough days too.
One thing that God has truly taught me, with two bad legs...is that I can do ALL things through Him. I know one thing...if I was to depend on my own strength...then forget it; because I would stay in bed and give up on the day...but I have no doubt...that it's His strength that allows me to do everything I do each day...praise Him!
You know...there are many theories out there for pain and other situations we face in life...and one of those is the "spoon theory," which I have come to dislike very much...because this theory only teaches the person to give into the problems they are facing. In other words...when the spoons are used up...then that person gives up and gives into the pain...or whatever they are facing at the time.
When we can truly see that we serve a limitless God; then we will also come to see that there is no distance too hard to travel...for God will be there to carry us through is all. Personally...I stand amazed, as to how far God takes me each day, with pain in my legs and feet. It may not always be an easy route to go...but God is bringing me through it all...and these moments have truly taught me to lean on Him, rather than myself. So today...let go of the theories that Satan only attempts to use, as a means of making us give into our problems...and trust in a theory that is based on God's word...one that says that we can overcome and find strength through Him...no matter the situation.
As you walk through this brand new day...my prayer for you; is that you will come to see God, as someone you can lean on...a God who will kick into overdrive, when you are too weak to continue on.
Have a great Saturday everyone...and may you truly experience the presence of God, in all you do today! God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
