do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13
I faked it, til I felt it.
I can't tell you when I'm at the gym, wondering what am I doing there, how many times I say this.
Today, when my legs felt like they could push no more and I wanted to quit. I tell God, "I can't do this"
I hear His voice in my head "Don't you dare quit, say it again."
I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me
I have struggled for awhile to find the positive side to my recent illness. Slowly, it's coming to light. I really am nothing and can do nothing without Christ.
I thought about that a lot when I was sick and laying in bed... how come I am a believer stuck in this bed and there are tons of bad people out there who don't believe and can at least work and get out of bed.
Like a bad record playing over and over again.
I'm not really sure that I have fully figured it out, but I know for myself that God needed to remind me that I am nothing without Him.
I watched a show yesterday and she talked about how God works through others to bless each of us. I am so blessed.
I may not have the biggest house in the world or have the fanciest of things, but I'm not unhappy. I am really blessed. I think about the hottest days we have ever had here and think how lucky I am because I got to sit in an air conditioned house.
That crosses my mind a lot lately. I have 2 pairs of shoes and in many parts of the world, they don't even have one.
I am very thankful for everything I have. I am very thankful for everything I am given and the people who give it to me.
I go without nothing. God truly takes care of me.
I get this Christian thing wrong a lot, but I am so in love with Jesus.
I talk to him every single night. He waits for me under our tree.
My heart just fills with love and flutters at the very thought of him.
Speaking of things I don't have to go without, I never have to go without him.
I can't relate to God on the scale that I can Jesus. I love God very much and think of Him as my father. I guess that's why He sent Jesus, to relate to us.
I am growing so much, I am learning I don't have to be a doormat, I'm learning that I don't have to be around people and things that make me uncomfortable.
I am learning to say no. I'm learning I can live without the things and people I never thought I could.
I guess I'm growing up.
It's late, I need to sleep. Was up pondering Jesus and how broken I am and how much he loves me anyway.
And how much I deeply love him.
