Word-filled Wednesday

Sometimes life seems so weary.  I just want to go to sleep and forget about it.  But Jesus promises to strengthen us.  To help us get up and face each day.  He promises to give us strength when we have to face a day on a job that has so many things going wrong, there's no place to start.  He helps us find the place to start.  One thing at a time.  He gives me strength when I have to tell my husband something I'd rather not.  Even when  I have to go outside and shovel the snow once again. The laundry has piled up and I'm the only one to do it.  He restores my soul.

We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us.  Nothing is bigger than God.

After a snowy, cold, long, winter earlier this year, this horse finally got to come out of the stable and rest in the sunshine.  She's really enjoying it.  It's unusual to see a horse laying down, but they do.  We enjoy the Sonshine even during storms.

What are your thoughts?


  1. Hi Karen,
    I love that Scripture and the photo. I can testify to going through some tough times with His strength. I do not know how I would of handled my first wife's death a few years back had it not been for Jesus. But I made it by His grace and moving forward with life. He has blessed me now with a new relationship and a soon to be new wife.
    God bless and thank you for sharing this verse and post.

  2. Thanks for sharing that testimony Ken. Some of the things we have to experience in this life are so challenging and painful. Praising God for His love, hope and a new beginning for you!
