I would fall apart without you.
I think back to when I used to attempt to conquer this world on my own. In my own strength. Too scared for neglect and too prideful to ask to for help.
I used to think I can do this all on my own. I made it this far with out anyone so why would I need anyone now.
My heart was pierced by God’s unfailing love and I knew that instant I would fall apart without him. I could not do all of this on my own.
Today I am a wife, a mother, a christian, a church member, accountability partner, and so much more.
I couldn’t do any of this without the Lord. Life is hard but it is beautiful.
When there are lots of things going wrong God tells me to trust him. When my life feels overwhelmed and crazy God tells me to thank him. I can’t do either these without him. On my own I would be in a messy downhill slide quickly. Affirming my trust in Jesus and crying out his name with even one slip of doubt I can have unbelievable peace with him no matter what my circumstances are.
Do not live self-sufficient rather rely on him each moment of each day. Live fully in his presence.
So today in my pain, in my suffering, in my trials, in my adversity I choose to praise God. Lord I thank you for these times, times of suffering with a purpose. A purpose I may not know until I am with you. A purpose in Heaven. I will bear my circumstance with bravery and thank you for this season. With my trust in you I will have supernatural joy and peace that can only come from you.
Lord, I would fall apart without you.
