"I can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens me."
Today as I was diligently working on packing at the condo then bringing stuff to our new home and putting them away I began to become overwhelmed. I thought, "I can't do this!" I just saw no end in sight.
Then the verse, "I can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens me" came to my mind.
It was like it gave me a "second wind." I knew I couldn't get it all done on my own accord so I turned to the Father. I prayed, "Lord, please help me get this done and to have wisdom of what to pack and take and what to declutter and get rid of." I didn't want to bring excess "stuff" to our new home.
God is good. I could feel a sense of His peace come over me and I felt as though He was right there helping me, and He was. He is inside you and me and is always there for us to just ask for whatever it is we need.
"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!
Apart from Him we truly can do nothing. That goes for the smallest of things to the hardest.
So again, I found myself today, as every single day, that I needed to seek Him to get the things done that I needed to. I couldn't do it alone. It was too daunting. With Christ by my side, carrying me through.. I was able to get so much done that I was amazed.
Each morning when I wake up, I thank God for the day and ..then.. I ask Him to walk with me each step of the way.
God is faithful to us and He's always there when we need Him. We just have to reach our arms up to Him.
