But as I scrolled through my Twitter stream this morning I came across a couple of things that stopped me in my tracks.
I love it when God reminds me of things that He is teaching me.
I loved it so much that I had to share it…Because I am pretty sure I am not the only one that needs reminding that God is our comforter and strength (And also so I won’t forget what God said to me).
This year I chose the word strength to focus on, and pray through with Jesus. Not my own strength but more of a 'more of Him less of me' kind of strength.
I tend to jump into things and then think to consult God, and I am done with that... Ok I WANT to be done with it, I am sure it will happen many more times.
But anyway back to Twitter-
First I came across a post titled When You Have to Do Hard Things. by Jennifer Dukes Lee (love this woman, her posts ALWAYS bless me.) She talks about God being our comforter, literally how it means that God is strong with us.
Secondly, I came across a post by another one of my favoritest writers Crystal Stine, her post is titled I’m Stepping Off the Hamster Wheel.
This is what struck me…
“When we plan and set goals on our own without consulting God because we think we can do it on our own – we’re living life upside down and will spend our time frantically striving to make it right side up.”
Well, I could go on and on… but really just go read them for yourself, you won’t be disappointed, and in fact I am sure you will be abundantly blessed.
In His Strength,
