With God as Our Strength

Today’s Thought:  We’re not given more that we can handle.  Sometimes I take on more than I can comfortably manage. That’s one of the ways in which my life becomes unmanageable.  It happens when I’m operating according to self-will rather than the will of God.

I believe God does not expect more of me than I can produce, that along with the challenges and difficulties I encounter comes the strength I need to cope with them and learn from them.  When chaos threatens, I’m either taking on more than I should, or I am not using the resources available to me.

We can learn to arrange our priorities so that we do not get worn our with compulsive activity and busyness.  Everything becomes more manageable when we’re not trying to run the show by ourselves.  Solid experience teaches us that support is always at hand, that our God comes through for us when we ask for help.

I will face today’s tasks, confident that I will be given the ability to accomplish God’s will for me.  Elisabeth L. 1990
