“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”(Galatians 6:9 ESV)
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”(Philippians 4:13 ESV)
Have you ever had one of those days where you just go and go and go, then hit a wall and have to stop? That was my day yesterday. I got my scooter out and went to town because it was such a beautiful day. Then put it in my trunk and a friend and I went shopping. By the time we had put the scooter in and out of my trunk 5 times, I hurt so bad I couldn’t help get it out once we got home. But after I had rested for a while, I still hurt but wasn’t so tired. I was thinking about what to write about when I remembered the verse Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13 ESV)
I can do all things because God strengthens me. I will admit, though, as I get older, there are things that are harder for me to do. But I need to remember that God will help me. I just need to ask Him to. God is waiting for us to admit we need Him. So many times, we just go it alone, hoping it all works out for us. And so many times it doesn’t. Then we finally turn to God for help.
So before going it alone, try turning to God first. I think that would work out better.
Have a great day, everyone.
