“I will love Thee, O Lord, my Strength.”
Today’s verse is really simple.
As a Christian, one day you will look back on the worst day of your life, and realize that the only reason you survived without falling apart, is because, while you were wallowing in deep sadness, thinking that you would never recover, the strength of God’s Love revealed itself in your weakness. His Strength compelled you to make yourself breakfast. It helped you to get to work, it increased your productivity, and brought you through to the other side of your sadness unscathed.
Looking back, you now know that there is a process of self-discovery that no one can tell you about; it is the knowledge that God’s Love is real in your life. It is not praise, and it is not worship; it is simply a place in time when you know, that you know, God has been a supernatural strength in your life the entire time. Yes. In good times and in bad, He has been with you!
Like the poem, Footsteps in the Sand, He has been carrying you the entire time! L.
