Mom, everyone says you are SO BRAVE when I tell them what you are going through, Amanda said as she climbed in the car at school pick-up. Mom, how are you so strong?
I choked on a laugh at her question. Amanda, do you know where that strength comes from?
From God, Avery piped in.
Yes, from God, I said. You know how I read my Bible each morning and talk to God? That's what I'm doing....getting my strength. None of what I do is on my own.
Let there not be any secret in that...whatever strength or bravery I may have comes from choosing daily putting my trust and hope in God. Coming before him and laying my fears and doubts and secret longings before him. He is good and can be trusted. He loves me and is walking with me.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. ~
