The Source Of My Strength.....


The Eternal is the source of my strength and the shield that guards me. When I learn to rest and truly trust Him, He sends His help. This is why my heart is singing! I open my mouth to praise Him, and thankfulness rises as song. --- Psalm 28:7

HE is the source of my strength....I woke super early yesterday morning with this phrase gently repeating over and over and over again in my head.  Little did I know the Lord was preparing me for what HE KNEW was coming just a couple of hours later.  (Though I certainly did NOT).  At approximately 8:30 yesterday morning, as I was getting ready for a long awaited MRI, I received a phone call from my beloved cousin that when checking on grandma he found her confused and unable to walk and that she needed to go the hospital.   Though I immediately heard that "other" voice whispering to me to panic, to worry, to give into my feelings of fear, I was able to not engage and instead to turn and talk to God.  He reminded me of what He had just shown me two hours earlier....He alone is the SOURCE of my strength.  Because of that I truly can rest and trust Him.  What should have been a day filled with chaos and crazy turned into a day filled with worship, praise, and PEACE!  

I am thanking Him for teaching me how to praise Him in all things.  Hardships are simply an opportunity to turn to Him, to have conversations with Him and not with myself.  Hardships give Him an opportunity to display HIS strength in my weakness.  I don't have to do anything except surrender and be purposeful in keeping my eyes on Him!
