The day ahead will have its familiar routines…and its unexpected demands. Even the most common of tasks will often call for special grace or an extra measure of kindness. Or for strength when you’re at your very weakest.
In those times when the demands are beyond you, when your physical strength is low, your energy failing, or your next steps uncertain…you have the limitless, unfailing, inexhaustible strength of our ever-compassionate Lord. When situations seem the darkest He rejoices at the opportunity to show His strength through you.
“The joy of the Lord is your strength.”
A quiet, expecting heart that is open to our Lord can give you the resources to become a joyous channel of the strength of the Lord.
Teach me, Lord, that I am never limited to my own resources. Amen
