Meditation Mondays – My God Strengthens

I’m not going to attempt to utter profound truths today. I write this as I cough incessantly and try to remember how to make coherent sentences in the midst of the mucus that has taken over my head. I don’t feel strong today. I would much rather crawl back into my bed and snuggle up with my sweet little one who is battling the same thing.

But I need so desperately to soak up God’s promises, especially on days where illness has settled into our home. I needed a Word about God’s strength to keep me moving when I feel sluggish.

He gave me this familiar reminder, and I am determined to cling to this strength that He promises me.

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

                 ~Philippians 4:11-13

I’ve been challenged to be content today, no matter how uncomfortable this state is. It could be so much worse, and He has allowed our family to endure this to grow us stronger. To remember to depend on Him for our strength.

    Feel better soon, friend. What a great reminder and one that I will cling to myself today as my little one battles sickness too. 🙁

    I think so often I’ve thought of that verse as not as powerful because it is used so often….like I would kind of glance over it because it was over-claimed, over cross-stitched, over-written. BUT – I am learning the more I study God’s Word just how powerful EVERY single verse is!!!! Definitely going to be using this one today!!!!

      I know exactly what you mean. I was looking for any verse BUT that one to cling to, and then God really convicted me. His Word is always powerful and true, no matter how much we’ve heard a verse. How could any part of His Word be considered over-used? Especially when there are so many in this world that have never heard it.
