I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.Phillipians 4:13 (NKJV)
Good Morning, it’s Monday! This morning I am focusing on Phillipians 4:13. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This is my prayer today, “Lord I need your strength.” I know I can do well and get through this day if God gives me strength. I am just getting over a bad head cold that caused me to be dizzy last week. I am feeling much better, but I still don’t have the strength or endurance I usually do. I am using some of my favorite essential oils to help give me comfort, but boy do I still need strength and energy.
I’m also questioning a few of my plans for this week. Can I really do it? What if it fails? What if it doesn’t? I remember a quote from Elisabeth Elliot that when things are hard, she would just do the next best thing. She had it harder than most of us ever will, but I think that’s great advice. Instead of worrying about the what-ifs just do the next thing that you know is good or right to do.
I am praying for patience and a clear mind today as I homeschool my children, and that they will be alert and cooperative. It seems that no one loves Monday, but with God’s strength and a positive attitude, we can get through today. I don’t want to just get through it, I want to live it well. What are you struggling with this week? What are you focusing on to help get you through it?
