Recently while visiting our son,
he and I drove down to the river one evening,
and of course I haven't learned to carry
my camera everywhere I go.
He reminded me of my phone camera.
The sunset gave the side of the bridge the warmest glow.
I seemed small from where my feet stood.
A few days after arriving back home,
I transferred the picture from the phone to the computer.
As I opened the picture and saw how the
bridge was the focal point of the evening sun,
I was reminded of God's strength.
What comfort and peace we can have resting
in His might. He is working all to our good.
Heartaches, Hardships, and Trials
require our dependence upon Him to show HIS strength.
I have faced some large, overwhelming circumstances
in my lifetime, not as great as some may have faced, but have
looked back and questioned how did I make it through?
It was my Lord and Saviour who showed His strength.
Who provided the peace in the midst of it all.
His word is so real for today.
2 Corinthians 12:9 speaks of HIS strength and power.
I've shared the following passage from The Message translation.
But HE said to me,
(my favor and loving-kindness and mercy)
is enough for you
[sufficient against any danger
and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]:
for My strength and power are made perfect
(fulfilled and completed)
and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness.
Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weakness
and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ
(the Messiah) may rest
(yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!
Wishing you a weekend filled
with renewed strength.
