I’ve found that when I feel incapable or vulnerable, no amount of saying “I can do this! I’m strong!” really does the trick.
Ever been there?
And sometimes the truth is- I AM incapable, but I need to do it anyway.
Yet when I get my mind off me, and trying make myself feel strong...and simply remember how strong and kind HE has always been to me- I’m filled with such....joy.
There’s joy in knowing that if He has asked me to do something- He will equip me for it, whether I can comprehend that now or not! (And if HE hasn’t asked me to do it, I shouldn’t be doing it! AKA...learning to say "no.")
And it is this joy...
the joy of staring straight into His trustworthy character that truly gives me a strength that just doesn’t make sense...
time and time again.
