“The Lord is My Strength”

“When we have exhausted our store of endurance, When our strength has failed before the day is half done, When we reach the end of our hoarded resources Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

His love has no limits, His grace has no measure, His power has no boundary known unto men. For out of His infinite riches in Jesus He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.”

Annie Johnson Flint, the author of this encouraging hymn, lost both her parents before she was six years old. Afflicted with arthritis as a teen, she was soon unable to walk. When her illness kept her from playing the piano she wrote these powerful words…and other hymns…typing with her knuckles. Her life was a constant witness to the truth that “His power has no boundary known unto men.”

Help me, Lord, to draw on your unlimited resources. Amen.
