I cannot depend on my “will power”, I can only depend on God’s power. Life tends to burn me out. The world and all the chaos that takes place, also burns me out. I need to constantly replenish, through self-care, through quiet time and reading just to name a few.
It’s not easy though, sometimes I don’t want to pray, sometimes I don’t want to worship, sometimes I don’t want to write out my feelings and thoughts-but guess what? I FIND NEW STRENGTH WHEN I DO!! I am reminded why I need God everyday. One of the reasons why having a relationship with God is important is because his mercies makes me new again. God refreshes my soul.
I am able to do what it is, is required of me to do. I don’t take this relationship lightly. God is truly my Jehovah Jireh (the Lord will provide), my Jehovah Shalom (the Lord of peace) and my Jehovah Shammah (the Lord i there).
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases his mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentation 3:22-23 ESV).
Share with me how you find new strength to go on?
