It is amazing to know how much my strength comes from Him. My being is intertwined in His Will that when I am astray I feel it so strong emotionally. He loves to test us, or better yet, He allows us to be tested. He wants us to be strengthened in His Word and nothing else. Wait, what did she just say? Yes, He wants us to gain our strength from Him. He wants us to feed on His Word, turn our problems to Him and He will wipe away every tear. We are so trained not to trust. We all have been stabbed in the back by individuals and many of us live that trust must be earned. We live in a world filled with sin and because of that, we are jaded. It is extremely scary not to be in control and to know that someone else has the power. The amazing thing is He's not "someone" He is "The One." He surpasses any illness, fear, doubt or weakness that we have. Because of sin we are afflicted, but with Him we are made whole. On days like today when my heart and body is struggling, I remind myself every minute that my soul is strong in Him. I've been told by individuals on this board before that I am strong. When I read that from the others the verse "for when I am weak, then I am strong" echos in my entire being. I turn myself over to you Lord, again and again. Although I may question and doubt, the one thing I never doubt is my faith in You. You are my strength and when I feel that I am unable to keep fighting you are the Rock that prevents me from falling.
