In the last two years I have learned just how frail I am. If ever I had reason to be proud in my self that is all gone now. I have lost every illusion of personal strength…but then they were only illusions anyway.
I have learned that by myself I am not strong…But God is and that’s no illusion! My God is a strength that cannot fail. I gladly trade all my illusions of personal strength for the truth that I am only strong when my God stand with me!
Amen! Pastor J. and He will never leave us.
Love you 😀
A-men Sister Pat! Love you too!
I love how you put it Pastor J, “the truth is I am only strong when my God stands with me.” This is oh, so true. A-men and A-men!
It is. We are so blessed to have a God who never leaves us!
Good reminder of how much we must rely on God. thanks.
You are welcome and thanks for stopping by Noel!
Thank you for being so honest and transparent for Him, so we can see how frail we are too. God bless you and be your strength today!
He is my only strength Deb! I know that now! 🙂 I am blessed!
“In the last two years” . . . it was a number of your posts ago that the thought occurred to me that you have “grown” spiritually since I started following you. By that I don’t mean you weren’t a fine example before then, but that (as should be expected) the hand of the Lord on you has been evident.
It is when we acknowledge our own weakness – correction, our total inability – and depend on our living, loving omnipotent Father God to undertake for us, that He enables us to use HIS strength to overcome.
What an amazing God!
Thank you Angela. The thought that others can tell by my writing that God has grown me is very humbling and such a blessing to me.
