He Can


As I stumbled through the dark house this morning

in the early morning hours

a heaviness is on my soul

and then

I stumbled upon an old journal entry

lost in my computer

and how it was what I needed to read

because

it reminded me

How Faithful God is

How Awesome God is

How God meets me

How God meets you

right where we are

providing me

providing you

with all that

we need

in the moment

no matter what we may be feeling in the moment

Because

He is

what

I am not

Because

He is

what

you are not...

A writing from yesteryear

but a writing

for today

because

God is about today

Breathing His Word

new every morning

into

our hearts....

May your heart be blessed~

Oh how the spirit of discouragement got the best of me last night.

After a great day of fellowship in my home,

a time of encouragement in the bible,

my house was emptied~

as my husband was off on a business trip

my children have all left the nest.

Just me and the neighbor’s cat.

Discouragement took over.

My head filling with failure words

Words of discouragement.

as I felt so alone

with just me, myself, and I.

A restless night, as did I sleep at all?

The morning sun woke me after an hour rest.

A new day

A new beginning.

yet

discouragement filled my head.

But...

as I peeled myself out of the bed,

I made an espresso

and grabbed the

bible

because

I needed Him.

I needed

The Him~

Whom I spoke of the day before to all who were at my home.

The Him~

Whom I know deep in my heart that

I have faith in.

Faith of the deepest kind.

The Faith~

in the "unseen" and not in the seen.

The Faith~

that is needed to please a loving God.

The Loving God~

Who all He asks is that we believe

In Him

especially in our

discouragement

in our

loneliness

in our

pain.

God put me to the test,

as He wants me to walk the talk.

To walk what my heart knows to be true.

If I relied on myself,

I will walk with a

spirit of discouragement

as

I can't do it~

Alone,

as

I can't do it~

without Him,

The Him

Who gives me all that I need to become all that He wants me to become.

So off to do what

I "can't do" with the

One

Who can do it for me.

I refuse to run away from the difficult,

even though that seems easier in the moment.

Thank you Lord

for the gentle reminder

from that day

in the past

to remind me

to

Put You in My Story

to remind you

to

Put Him in Your Story

so that

He can do

what we can't.

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14
