Through the years, our family has endured difficult seasons in which we were barely able to put one foot in front of the other. Illnesses, hardships, life changes, broken hearts, gut wrenching decisions, pain. Those were the times we curled up at the feet of Jesus and let His people serve and minister to us. We reached up and let our Savior comfort us as only He can. We sought His will, His healing, His strength. Alone, we weren’t strong enough.
Right now, our family is in a season of cheer. We are all healthy and doing well. The sun is shining, soccer is well under way, our school year is going great. I’m humbled by these blessings.
Life is good.
But we still aren’t strong enough.
We’re still not able to do all God has called us to do if we fail to let Him strengthen us and guide us. We’re only human. We’re weak. We’re frail. We’re not strong enough.
Whether the sun is shining in your life or whether the cloud cover has caused this season to be gray – God has promised to be strong enough for both of us. I find so much joy in knowing this. Because of Jesus, we can be strong!! Kinda makes you want to sit up straighter in your chair, doesn’t it?!
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
I love this song by Matthew West, Strong Enough, and pray that you are blessed by the words and by the knowledge that God is strong enough to hold all of us, no matter what!
