Strength in God


I am Thankful for the strength that God gives me each day. My husband says one of my good qualities is me strength that only comes from God. I have days where I feel like I am super women, I cook, clean, help Travis with home school and move furniture all around the house. Yesterday was one of those days I just couldn’t rest. At the end of the day I was so exhausted that I just wanted to lay down, but the Holy Spirit said come to me child. Here’s the verse that kept coming to mind, Psalms 27:8 “My heart has heard you say, "Come and talk with me." And my heart responds, "Lord, I am coming.” So I read several chapters in Psalms and then I read a chapter in the new book I am reading called (The Power of a Woman’s Words). I am so glad I stopped and listened because after I read the Bible and my book I was relaxed. It’s great to know that indulging in God’s word it always calms our mind and heart. I am Thankful for Gods strength and always knowing that I can find rest in his arms.
