I love you, LORD, my strength.
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, Truth, Love, 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. My relationship with Him can’t be healthy if it’s based on conditions, one-sided, Natasha-focused. That’s narcissism taking over. The clay doesn’t tell the potter what to mold and how to do it. But look at us humans just blabbering away, interrupting and disrupting things, slamming our lousy two wooden coins on the table like their priceless.
We have to stop disrespecting God, our relationship, and ourselves. I’m working on me as God molds me second by second each day. I pray that you’re working on you. Trusting, obeying, and relying upon Him. One day we’ll be fully aligned with an unbreakable bond, and oh what a sight that will be. I’m claiming it!
Father, I love You. I need You. There is peace only when I surrender fully and completely to You. I need Your help to face and walk past fear and insecurities. Blanket me in Your peace, love and joy. Embraced by You calmness fills me. I want to keep my eyes, mind, and heart on You Lord, so that I can stop losing focus looking elsewhere. You are All-in-All, beyond enough, yet my sinful actions say otherwise. I want to be redeemed and my actions reconciled through my obedience and full alignment to You. In Your Name I praise, pray, and am strengthened. Amen.
Love you all,
