I was recently having a conversation with my mom in which I said, “I wish I could just live and things would go the way that I like. I wish wrenches wouldn’t be thrown into my plans.” My mom agreed, then said that if it weren’t for the wrenches then we wouldn’t need God. God continues to allow things to not go the way you want because it reminds us that we are dependent upon him and is saving power.
My life is busy, not as busy as it could be (I do have time to blog) but in my busyness I try to balance all that I have to do. When one things falls, doesn’t go the way that I want to, I tend to crumble. I don’t lean on God to take catch what is falling.
I don’t want to crumble, I want to be the one that stands tall and strong.
Isaiah 40: 29-31
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the week.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
