Strong and Able!

Do we always feel strong and able in the faith? No, but if we abide in our Father up above we can continue to grow to be strong and able. Even if we don't feel strong we need to lend a hand to those who falter even when it doesn't feel good. There have been somedays in the last 18 years that I have thought this in not convenient, not now! But, who am I? I'm just a child of God, a sinner saved by Grace and I need to continue to use my strength that God gives me for service not status!

Lord, Help me to look out for the good of people around me....and not just these boys you have sent to us. There are lots of other people out there hurting, too. How can I help, Lord? Help me to have the strength to persevere, even when it's not convenient. Help me to be open to how you would want me to help the parents out there that are hurting. I am so thankful to you JESUS for lending out your hand when I falter and helping me get back up to continue in this race! In Jesus Name, AMEN

Very effective.
I have a great set of reflections about "good for the goose" from Word for Today...and I used it today at devotions at the elderly village...it fits well with that verse.

Amen! The picture is awesome!! What is it about guys showing their muscles?? Too funny! There's so much need around each one of us. God can open our eyes to see where He wants us to serve Him and give a helping hand. Thanks so much for sharing today.

These Bible verses were especially encouraging to me today as I sit here squinting due to eye drops in my eye. Just a routine test, but it can certainly make me feel weak! And coupled with this it's a good reminder that when my eyes are clear again to keep them open for ways God wants to use me. Have a blessed Word-Filled Wednesday. :)

A neat WFW, thank you ~

Great picture and verse combination. It's so easy to become consumed with our little part of the world that we forget to extend a helping had to others.
