The next writing prompt in “God is My Happy Place” is the following verse.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13 NIV
Have you ever felt like, God was asking you to do something that was so big & overwhelming that you weren’t sure how you were going to get it done. I know I have. This verse is a great reminder that God will give me the strength to do it.
Currently, one of the things God is leading me to do is eat healthier. Sometimes, it feels so hard. I have let my eating habits get way out of control. But this verse reminds me that He will give me the strength to keep going. I can lean on Him, when I am weak, which is all the time.
Sometimes that comes in different forms. There are times when I need to write it out. Others times, I need to read my Bible & pray. Giving God praise & thanks is helpful.
God also uses people to help me. For example, my husband is very supportive & is helping me. God also uses the stories of others to encourage me.
God is where my strength is found. No matter how he may choose to give it to me.
Thank you, Lord, for your strength & goodness. Thank you for always being with me. I know you will never leave me. Thank you.
