Letting Christ Strengthen Me

      So, what do you do when you're feeling completely defeated and incapable of any abilities? What do you do when that moment strikes and you think "Did I bite off more than I can chew?" Or maybe you were saying to yourself “What in the world were you thinking that you could do this!?!?!”

Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

You turn your eyes up to the Lord and turn that defeated feeling over to Him. Then He will show you how strong you truly are because of Him!

I did that tonight when I was feeling pretty stupid for attempting this one particular task. I began to talk to God about it. Sometimes I do this by walking around the house picking up little out of place items because my brain will relax and speak more freely to Him. As soon as I did that, I felt that turn completely 180 degrees and realized, it's not that I'm not smart enough. It's simply I don't have the skills to complete the task so therefore, I need to ask and LEARN the skills so that I can complete my task in front of me.

Tonight I will rest comfortably knowing that tomorrow will be a new day and The Lord loves me unconditionally. I know that I will learn how to do this and it will be amazing once I get it finished! I pray for you tonight also, that if you are feeling defeated, you will turn your eyes to Heaven and ask for the strength that Christ gives you. Let that strength wash over you tonight so that when you wake in the morning you will feel refreshed and rested knowing that you will get this done!

Good night my friends!
