Bigger than me

I can endure all these things through the power of the one who gives me strength. ~Philippians 3:14
Once again I find myself sitting in a “bigger than me” problem. It’s enormous. I want to say I am dealing with it beautifully. I can’t. Last night as I struggled to calm my mind down enough to sleep, I felt God’s reminder that the problem didn’t occur in one day. It would also take “time” to correct things. Somehow I managed to finally get to sleep.

Upon awaking the panic crept back in. Since I obviously was not going to sleep anymore I picked up my phone to see if the blog I scheduled a few days back posted correctly today. If I had been in a laughing mood I would have laughed out loud. The post that I had written several days before was on anxiety. God’s way of preparing a message that He knew I needed to hear today. When I wrote the blog I was just reflecting. Today I needed the reminder to take each day at a time.

So today I am just practicing my breathing skills, trying to wait on God’s wisdom and I am taking to heart once again that I CAN endure all things through Christ who gives me strength. I have no great wisdom today. I am just an ordinary woman just trying to take life one day at a time. Breath by breath.

With every breath of air I take this day Lord, may I be reminded that Your Spirit lives in me. I know that You are bigger than my problems and that You in time will reveal the wisdom I need. I thank You for the strength you hide in me to endure each day. Amen.

    This is beautiful. And you do have wisdom today, it is reflected in your transparency of recognizing that you can’t do it on your own strength but you CAN do everything through Christ and you will. That’s His promise. Also to take one day at a time, one moment at a time. Serenity prayer. Love you my sister and friend.

    Father, I pray for my sister and friend right now that you will meet her where’s she’s at, that you’ll continually remind Jennifer that your are the Beer Lahai Roi “the God who sees me.” That you would lift her head (Ps 3) that she would walk in confidence that you will answer her. I pray against fear because you have said that in you there is no fear for perfect love drives out fear and that you gave us not a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control. May Jennifer walk this day in the Spirit which lives within her. In your name Jesus, I ask all these things and more. amen.

    Such grace and wisdom. There is something powerful and healing about breathing, eh? Keep doing it. Living the moment that we have in front of us… the next comes when it’s time. Shalom!
