I got an email yesterday from one of these dear friends with a plethora of Scripture to help me remember where my strength comes from. It's not from my physical body, it is from my Heavenly Father. As I was reflecting through each verse this morning, I realized that once again I was trying to do this on my own. My prayer-life has been full with all that's been going on lately, but being in the Word has been lacking. I was just too tired. (What a lame excuse!)
Regardless, God is faithful and has provided me these wonderful friends to help keep me on track - even if they don't know that's how He's using them in my life. So today as I focus on my Strength, I'll also say a prayer of thanksgiving for the people He has placed in my life. I said this yesterday to a couple of friends - and even had tears in my eyes as I said it... I cannot imagine going through my life without the friends He has so lovingly placed in my path along the way!
You, my friends, are a blessing and an answer to prayer! I love you so much!
"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14
