Do I have to be strong? 

  

In today’s world do you ever feel like your going to drop everything you’ve been trying to hold together and fail someone? Maybe you feel like the world is on your shoulders, or even that you can not juggle one more basketball schedule: baseball schedule: FFA: dance: or any kind of schedule anytime soon because there is no room for it in your own schedule…. Do you feel like you have to be the strong one in your home? Keeping the house clean, supper cooked, clothes washed, floors swept, groceries bought, and so on. You can’t even sleep at night without planning what you have to do the next day…. Are you loosing your grip  or feel like it? Who could possibly help you? Have you tried handing your life over to God? 
In Psalms 73:25-26 says, “Whom have I in heaven but you? And the Earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” 

My heart and flesh may fail…. Man sounds like we’re dying… But what it’s saying is even when we think we “Have it together” and we “Drop everything” God is there to take every schedule your juggling, every bill your paying, every stress your carrying, and He will help you and guide you through it all. It’s like when you were in High School and you dropped all your books in the hallway. One person out of hundreds stops to help you pick them up. It’s the same with God. We’re walking down the “Hallway of Life” trying to make it to our “Next class” on time. 

Time. We never seem to have enough of it and what we have we are scheduling and rescheduling and stressing over it. We get wore down abd become weak- but yet we still think we are strong…. Psalms 147:3-4 says, “Do not put your trust in Princes nor in man in whom there is no help. His spirt departs and he returns to the Earth in that very day-all his plans perish.” How many times have we done this? We trust or husbands to “take out the trash” but it never gets done… Delagating certain jobs over to certain people is a risky thing. You have to trust them and when they fall short, everyone hurts. Unless you pair with God. He never fails, He always holds up his end, and He gives us peace and confidence throughout the process. 

So do we have to be strong? No. We do not have to be the strong one. We serve a strong God, but we must be strong enough to hand it over to him. Everything over to him. “For  we are weak He is strong.”, isn’t that what we teach and learn as a child in “Jesus Loves Me”? Maybe it’s time we stop thinking we have it-and say we don’t and hand it over to God… 

My prayers to you and your durning this season! Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!
