Be encouraged

IMG_0816 (1)

We don’t know what the day holds, but we know Who holds us.  Be encouraged and draw on His strength.  He definitely has an endless supply of it.

Raising grandchildren, I pray for His strength a lot.  He always comes through.  I tell these things to hopefully help somebody else and not to brag.  I don’t have anything to brag about.

He let me know one day to stop focusing so much on what I have to get done and rest before Him.  I kept having to ask for His peace because I had so much to do.  Rather, I had so much I thought I had to do.  I heard, ‘stop some efficiency’.

I came from the corporate world, which now seems so far away.  And thankfully so.  I was wrapping my day in a tighty little package and lining all my ducks in a row.  I could do three things at one time and no duck strayed far from the line.

I will take my life I have now instead of any life the world has to offer.  I’m very humbled and grateful for the Lord and where I am today.  My prayer swing is my resting place before God and I ask for nothing more.

Psalm 46:1-3 – God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.  Selah.
