to do what I’m supposed to do,
to complete the plans God made for me before I was born.
“Let your hands be strong.” God spoke these motivating words thousands of years ago to the workers who were rebuilding his Temple and he is also saying them to me today as I read his word.
And now to you.
We will need strong hands to complete our purpose here on earth before our Father takes us home.
We need wisdom.
We need discernment.
We need to persevere.
We need strength and knowledge.
It’s a great thing that all of these come from God because writing that long list wore me out and caused a little anxiety.
It’s a lot. And its tough. But I’m in it for the long haul…
and it really is a long haul. The older I get, it is becoming more and more clear how challenging this long haul is going to be.
My husband and I just moved out by the mountains and – as the sun rises in my new backyard – God reminds me once again that he has my back. He is here.
He is my Rock.
He is beside me every step of this long haul.
And he has given me strong hands to do his will.
Thank you, Abba Father.
