With the constant media presentations regarding how our rich live, and the depression I see almost every day while working for the LOM visiting the poor the old and sick I thought I'd contribute to the R D T todays reading from Vision Christian Media. might give a lift to any TK's who might be struggling
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. (Phillippians 4:13), Paul believed he could handle whatever life threw at him, Do you believe that to? What are the things that trigger your fear and cause you to say, "I could never do that"? Suddently losing aloved one? Facing an unexpected illness? Having your adult child with two toddlers move into your fastidiously clean and tranquil house after you have had an empty nest for years? Going on a stringent deit because your life defends on it? Puting yourself on a budget to prevent reposession of your home.? Suddenly having to take care of a disabled, elderly parent.
Most people have some sort of situation that seems impossible for them, something they are unsure they can handle. The truth is, while some situations may be extremely undesirable or challenging for you. God says you can do whatever you need to do in life. He dosen't say everything will be simple for you; He dosen't promise you will enjoy every little thing you do but you can enjoy life in the middle of doing them. How? through the power of the One 'who infuses inner strength in you.' When you need money you make awithdrawal from your bank account . When your car is empty, you make awithdrawal from the petrol pump. So when life gets overwhelming , pray and make a withdrawal from God's grace, love, strength, power, and guidence.
