God is My Strength and Power



It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.

- Psalm 18:32

Today I woke up with some new thoughts and new strength...praise God for His mercy!

Last week I was able to spend time with myself and journeyed inward. It was a peaceful experience yet, I emerged a bit fearful. I guess I was entertaining too many thoughts and was worried with too many meaningless concerns. In might be a shame to admit here for awhile I panicked, not knowing what to do...and in my mind should I find the way, how will I manage to do them? Then it was Easter! How could I have an inward journey to myself trying to reflect on how he died on the cross for me and got so discouraged upon looking at my own cross! I felt so small and unworthy.

So, I tried to do what I always do, I prayed. I prayed a lot. That line 'pray until you pray' became so real to me. Praise God, it worked for me!

So today, I woke up with some new thoughts and new strength!

Many times in my life, I try to do things consciously for I believe whatever we do consciously forms into habit...just like LOVE...sometimes so is prayer.

Today I reflect on my life...what have I done for the 29 years...what have I become...am I proud of the life I live. That is all it takes for me to smile big and get strength because all throughout my journey He is there wherever I go...my source of strength...and He makes my way perfect...in His eyes and in His time.

I wish you all a blessed Wednesday...and may you have the strength you need to make it through week, and may your way be perfect in the eyes of God.

Nice!! I also felt weary this week, and instead of lying down on my bed I felt God saying, "Come to me and I will give you rest." So I spent several hours in His word and journalling and sure enough, He strengthened me! Amen to His strengthening power. Happy WFW.
