Faith Challenge Day 2- Strength

God is our refuge and strength...

Good morning to all you beautiful bloggers and followers! This morning I woke up with such ease. I usually wake up on Saturdays only to crawl back under the covers. My week is always so busy and hectic that I leave my weekend to sleep in. I'm not sure why today was so different, but I'm just going to go with it and thank God!

So this is my second entry for the 30 Day Faith Challenge. And I must say that this was just a really good idea because it gives me yet another opportunity to get into the Word throughout my day. Who knew?! Honestly I have been convicted in my heart of not reading enough so this is my commitment to do so. Thanks  to Cat over at This Little Life of Mine for creating the link up. 

So today's theme is strength. All too often I find that my natural man wants to rely on my own strength to get through the day or even through the most difficult times. My flesh wants to be the strong one, use its own power (which is very minimal if not obsolete) instead of relying on the power of God through Jesus Christ to light my path.

It is in these rough times that I find my solution in the [favorite] book of Psalm. There are so many ideas and beliefs presented to us on a daily basis. There are so many stumbling blocks and problems that the devil tries to put in front of us constantly. And there are so many crutches that we may lean to in order to make ourselves feel okay with what is going on around us. The unchanging truth of the matter is that in ALL things Christ is the answer. He never changes, He never leaves us, we are never forsaken. We are free to stand firmly on the Word of God as our strength. A foundation that is as solid as a rock. I thank God for this chief cornerstone. I thank him for giving me strength daily to do whatever is required of me. This verse in the picture above is my reminder that God is my security in a very insecure world. Be strengthened by Him today...Be be better!
