Breaking Bread For 6.10.21

Scripture

I love you, LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18:1

Reflection

How simple a declaration. Of love and the acknowledgment of the Source of his strength. David sang these first words of a song he had written in honor of God, after God saved him from his enemies. Where does your strength come from? Do you credit God, self, or another source? As you’re climbing through the rough parts are you tapping into God or are you thinking that your strength is something you have to muster and build on your own, maybe with some help from Him?

I can admit that there are many times when I am self-centered in thinking about my issues, fears, and weaknesses. I get caught up thinking that everything rests upon my shoulders. Foolish me. I waste too much time thinking about my limits rather than standing tall in my knowing—that God is my Source of Life, Love, Truth, Joy, Happiness, Healing, Power, and Strength. He is Victory, and in Him and with Him, all obstacles shall be overcome.

I’m trying to get in the habit of declaring my truth the moment before doubt creeps in, as it’s nearing my door—and not just when it’s nestled in my mind and heart, torturing me. I’m focusing on turning to and tapping into God at all times, not just in my times of fear. I’m working on me as God molds me second by second each day. One day we’ll be fully aligned with an unbreakable bond, and oh what a sight that will be!

Prayer

Father, I love You. I need You. I need to surrender fully and completely to You. Father I need Your help to overcome fear, to conquer my insecurities, to squeeze out any envy and jealousy that bubbles beneath the surface, and any resentment, frustration and anger that is waiting to unleash on an unsuspecting victim.

Father, free me from this negativity and darkness. Blanket me in Your peace, love and joy so that a calmness fills me. Keep my eyes, mind, and heart on You Lord, so that I can stop losing focus looking elsewhere. In Your Name I pray. Amen.

Love you all,

Natasha
