God is my strength and power, and He makes my way perfect
- 2 Samuel 22:33
Do you ever have one of those days, weeks, or maybe even years where your life feels like a constant uphill battle? Where you’re consumed by weakness, and the “light at the end of the tunnel” is nowhere to be found? I know that I’ve been there many times, and I’m sure you have too.
I’ve struggled with depression for the past 5 years, and the feeling of weakness is no stranger to me. I’ve gone weeks at a time where my only prayer is to make it through the day, and months when I hardly even recognize myself. We all have our own battles and are familiar with different struggles, but we also have one incredible Almighty God who wants to be our strength. Our God is always right by our side in our struggles, and will never abandon us in any moment! God has shown me over the years that He has always had a perfect plan for my life, and that I never have to face struggles alone. He says that His power is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9) and that He is our refuge and strength (Psalm 46:1). So my dear sisters, when you feel beaten up by life and worn down to the core, turn to your Father and ask Him to be your strength… I promise He’s right there and ready for you.
When I feel weak, where does my strength come from - he Lord or things of the world?
What are some of the struggles I have overcome that in the moment I never thought I would? Celebrate the victories!
Lord, I want to thank You for Your unfailing love, constant guidance, and presence in my life. I pray that I continually turn to You in times of struggle, but also in times of joy knowing that You are by my side in every moment. I pray to have the strength to endure my struggles, the grace to benefit from them, and the willingness to trust You. Thank You so much for this beautiful life Lord, and for the perfect strength and power I can find in You.
