Leaning On Myself
Leaning on myself. Sometimes this is a daily occurrence with me. I have such good intentions in the quiet of the morning that 'today I will lean on God and get my strength from Him' and then a million things go wrong before 10am and I forget that Jesus is right there with me, waiting to help me and give me His strength. I stress and fret and try to do everything in my own strength (and then either snap at everyone~poor Mike~or cry that no one understands what I'm going through~poor Mike again) and things go from bad to worse. Remember today that Jesus loves us and wants us to lean on Him in EVERYTHING. Don't feel like you should only go to God for the big things. Go to Him for EVERYTHING. Remember, our prayers don't have to be long, eloquent ones. They can be tiny cries from the depths of our hearts whispering for help just like a child asking her daddy to help her. He is our father and loves us SO MUCH. He understands. He alone can give us the strength we need for every challenge we face. God tells us in Psalms 2:12b- "Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him." That word trust here means "believe, take refuge, lean on" When I lean on myself I can feel like I am drowning but when I lean on God,He directs every step I take and many times has to carry me when I can't walk on my own. There is power and comfort in God. Let's ask Him to hold our hand throughout the day today and if need be~carry us through.
