“I will love Thee, O Lord, my Strength.”
Today’s verse is really very simple. As a Christian, one day you will look back on the worst days 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 The Supernatural Strength in your life the entire time. Yes. In good times and in bad times, He has been with You! -You thought that you were all alone, seeing only one set of footprints marking all the places where your life has been. But now, looking back at all the times when you felt broken, just like the poem, Footprints in the Sand, today, you know that, God has been carrying YOU the entire time! L.
