Strength


My “WORD” for 2022 is
STRENGTH,
so I was delighted to see
the Bloganuary#25 prompt is:
Write about what makes you feel strong.

Flexibility is one condition related to strength.

More important than anything else for me
Is realizing the Source of my strength
And tuning in to the One who delivers it.
He has strength closer than arm’s length.

In my Morning with Jesus 2022 daily reading,
I find scripture references to draw on.
When I need extra strength, I go where
Help is delivered faster than Amazon!

Ps. 31:24

“Be strong and take heart
All you who hope in the Lord.”

God does not promise we will be without troubles.
He simply says He will walk us through.
So when you feel you’re in the middle of an earthquake,
Rely on God because He is there with you!

Joshua 1:9

“Be strong and of good courage;
Be not afraid,
Neither be thou dismayed:
For the Lord, thy God,
Is with thee.”

He lifts me up
when I can no longer
walk on my own!

2 Cor. 12:9

He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you;
for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly
about my weakness,
so that Christ’s power
may rest on me.”

And I can rest on Him…
as He raises me up
so I can stand on mountains!

Believe it!
You have the Power of God in you!

Be strong and of good courage!
That’s what we needed this week
As we are at Mayo Clinic looking
For answers. He cares as we seek!

In awe of Him, we are still,
and in His presence we bow
And pray for His strength.
He delivers today… right now!

Thanks for your prayers for Bob.

See ya tomorrow (God willing)
Love to you…
Have a blessed Tuesday!

Sure do love that guy!
60 years coming Feb. 11 !!

  3. You are such an inspiration. I’m fortunate in love, also. My husband and I share our love and dependence on the Lord. My husband suffers from a severe traumatic brain injury almost 12 years ago and requires a great deal of help with memory, and some of the simplest challenges of the day, but he was a great classical guitarist before his injury and practices several hours a day trying to get to the level he was before. He is a wonderful inspiration to me, as well. He never gives up and always goes to the Lord in prayer before eating one bite of food, when he wakes, and when he goes to bed. He also talks to the Lord throughout the day to praise Him for having me as his helper. I praise Him as well for Ronny. Although my mental status is greater than his, he teaches me many things with his fortitude and persistence. God bless you both with a wonderful future.

  6. Amen! Beautiful post! “He lifts me up when I can no longer walk on my own!” Reminds of the poem “Footprints in the sand” by Mary Fishback Powers. My mum had it on the wall at home. I always took great comfort.
    Thank you for following my blog. I can see that I will enjoy yours as well. πŸ™‚
