EMBRACED BY GOD'S STRENGTH
By Karen L Schenk

"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:29, 31).

"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will
never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged"
(Deuteronomy 31: 8).

"One thing I ask of the Lord; this is what I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble, he will keep me
safe in his dwelling"(Psalm 27:4, 5).

In times of difficulty I am often consumed by my weakness
and inability to change or better my circumstances. I am a problem-solver and like to fix things.
When things go wrong it usually takes me a little while to realize that there is nothing I can do, and it seems that only then do I turn to God. Once there, my perspective changes drastically. It is there, in the center of His presence,
that I discover that Christ offers all that is needed to go through the difficulty. The pain doesn't go away, but perspective and strength come when I focus on Christ. He empowers me with peace, power and His presence.
As I ask the questions, "Why?" and "What now?", I'm able to surrender them to Christ, knowing that He has the ability to see the big picture. In times like these, my faith is
recalibrated and each moment I'm faced with a choice to trust God or to resist Him. As I trust, I'm able to make steps forward even though they may feel weak
and feeble, but when I resist, I quickly begin to sink into despair and hopelessness.

I encourage you today to remember that God will keep you safe in His dwelling and that He will never leave you or forsake you.
Ask others to pray that in your pain and aloneness you will not feel abandoned by God who seeks to hold you close. He, like no other, understands your pain.
He cares so much for you even if you don't feel it.
Someone once said, "the pain of our present
becomes the compost of our future."
It is in this time of heartache and struggle
that a refining work can take place deep within you if you allow God to do that work.
He is so willing to go before you and to walk this road with you; all you have to do is allow Him to.
