I spent a lot more time in my Bible today. Some days, well, you just need more. I am going through Psalms in my daily readings and was in Psalm 84. Verse 5 really resonated with me as I feel like I’ve been going through my days relying on my own strength. Ugh…that gets so tiring!
Blessed are those who make You their strength, for they treasure every step of the journey. From the Voice
When we rely on our own strength, our own path, our own abilities, we grow weary. It’s hard to do it all alone. The thing is, we aren’t created to do it all alone. God gave Adam a helper, Eve. He Himself walked with them each day. We were not meant to live in isolation.
We have godly people all around us who can carry the weight for us. They can pray you through, encourage you to lean not on your own understand, and love on you to bring you peace.
We have God and His strength to lean on. When we can remove the burden of isolation. We can push off the load of having to be strong in our own right. We can enjoy the journey and treasure every step of it!
Are you leaning on God’s strength or taking it all on yourself?
