I am a Christian woman. I am grateful for what God has given me. Truth be told, I could probably be more grateful, but nonetheless, no matter how little or much it is, gratitude is in my heart because even in my darkest days God still smiles upon me.
With that being said, I am going to describe what my personal darkest day feels like. By letting you as the reader into my most personal feelings, it is my prayer that you see that no matter the darkness, God will ALWAYS shine and prevail. So here goes….
Some mornings I open my eyes and think to myself “God, I just can’t do it today!” Sometimes I feel inadequate as a mother, a wife, and just as a woman all round. Of course, the devil instantly jumps at this opportunity to attempt to do his filthy work. The will feed of off those emotions and do everything in his power to stop you from moving. Believe me I am telling you from my personal experience.
Anytime you think or say to yourself that you can’t do something, the devil is going to jump in and say “You’re right!” “There’s no way you can do this on your own because you’re weak!”
If you think about it for a second, the slimy snake is actually right. We can’t do anything on our own. Can we raise our children on our own? NOPE! Can we carry our household on our own? NOPE! So yes, the devil is right. BUT, can we raise our children with God? YES! Can we carry our household with God? ABSOLUTELY! I wouldn’t want to do any of this on my own! Would you?!?!?!
We are blessed to have a God that carries EVERYTHING for us! All we have to do is trust in Him and have faith! Praise God! It doesn’t matter how dark the days are and no matter of our loneliest hour He shines His heavenly light so we can see! He wraps His loving arms around us and holds us during our pain and loneliness to ensure us that no matter how lonely we feel, we are truly never alone! YES! AMEN! For if God is for us, it doesn’t matter who is against us!
So, I’m going to challenge you today. This goes for me as well. When we wake up in the morning and the devil – the slimy, good for nothing snake says we can’t do this alone or we can’t fight this battle, lets stand together and tell the him how it really is! Let’s tell the devil that he is the weak one and a lie! But God – God is our strength and our truth!
We have God’s strength within us and we stand by His truth and His truth alone! Praise the Lord! God gives us the strength. All we have to do is MOVE!
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].
