Take That and Run!

Whatever I have, wherever I am, 
I can make it through anything 
in the One who makes me who I am. 
Phil 4
On these kinds of mornings, 
where the week has been long 
and the day ahead full, 
and I want to give in to being just a little weary,
the words of Scripture infuse me with simple truth.
He makes me what I am.
He is continually making me,
and He is more than enough for me.
I get a sense of how David felt 
when he spoke to his soul.
"Why are you so downcast oh my soul?
The Lord has been good to you, so rejoice."

I say to myself this morning,
Why would you give in to weariness?
The Lord has been strength to you so far.
And His strength is enough for you today.
The Lord makes you who you are.
Take that and run with it.
My soul needs a good 
talking to sometimes.
Lord, thank You for Your
faithful encouragement
and meeting me
every day!
