She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. Proverbs 31:25
This woman, in Proverbs 31, I look up to her.
Just now, I searched for verses about STRENGTH (thank you, internet, for making it SO easy!!!). This verse, Proberbs 31:25 (NLT) was one in a list of many. God has been asking and asking for me to lean on HIM and rely on HIS strength, and not mine alone.
Today has been a rough day for me, but it brought wisdom. I cant do anything, and thrive in it, with out God’s strength. I get tired. I get weak. I grow frustrated with every road block I have to climb over or go around. I begin to wonder if I’ll ever make it through this, or make it to the goal.
The truth of the matter is, I only get tired or weak or frustrated or depressed when I am trying to do something on my own. I cant leave God out. He has laid everything out and set it into motion with the intention of STAYING involved in each and every second, every thought, every breath. We are designed to NEED HIM, and honestly, I do need him. I do need my Daddy. I’m always going to be his child, and I’m always going to need his help.
God, please give me your strength and guidance. I desperately need it. Not for myself, but for someone very close to my heart. I love you, Daddy.
I think if I could make Miss Cassee (my mini schnauzer of 7 years) understand just one thing, it would be that I have loved her since the moment I first held her, and that I will love her forever. She is my baby girl, and a huge part of my life for as long as God allows. I love you Princess, always 🙂
I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing lots of awesome things that God is doing in the lives of the people around me, lately! It’s pretty amazing, if you ask me.
One of my closest friends, Ryann, has been called to do ministries in Australia!
(to read more about that, visit her blog: http://ryannthegirl.wordpress.com for her story and updates!)
Thats just one of the many beautiful things I get to enjoy along side my loved ones. It truly puts a smile on my face to see that out Father is calling us to live out his plan, and to live the way we were originally made to live: with Him in every part of our lives. 🙂
This makes me think about where I am headed. I start to question and crave to know the answers: What’s my plan, God? Where do you need me now, and where or what am I working towards? What goals have you set for my life? What should I be changing or doing in my life to make these things happen?
I am very interested in what God has in store for this girl. I don’t have any plans for myself at this point, which I view as a blessing: being able to be completely free to do what God asks me, when He asks me, is a beautiful thing. 🙂
Where or what is God calling YOU to right now? I’d love to hear about it! Maybe I’ll even do a post of some of the stories 🙂
