Grace morning on this marvelous and meaningful Monday.
Are you weak? Stressed? Exhausted? Troubled? Battling depression? Do you need more energy to run this race of life that you’re in? Is your strength depleted? Don’t give in, don’t give up, and don’t give over to the current problem you’re facing. God can help.
Life can make us weary and challenging… it can deplete us from the strength we need to get out of bed and do the things we are required to do. Yes, we can work out by lifting weights and taking our fitness walk. Those activities can provide us a level of fitness that enable our bodies to function physically, yet we also need additional inner strength to be able to function well. Since our mind, body and spirit are interconnected, how we feel spiritually or emotionally can effect our physical energy level. That’s where God can help.
When we are dependent upon God, when we surrender to him, when we rely on him and ask Christ to live his life through us, we’re actually living by his power and strength. You see, if we try to be strong in our own might, we don’t give God the opportunity to use his strength as he lives through us.
“Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!” Angels listen as I sing my thanks. I kneel in worship facing your holy temple and say it again: “Thank you!” Thank you for your love, thank you for your faithfulness; Most holy is your name, most holy is your Word. The moment I called out, you stepped in; you made my life large with strength.”
Psalm 138:1-3 MSG
God will bless you with what you need as you honor and thank Him for what He has already blessed you with.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this magnificent Monday!
