Count On It

Have you ever felt so weak and fragile that you thought there was no way you could continue? Are there times in your life when you feel so overwhelmed and troubled that you are virtually paralyzed? I certainly have.

God said to me when those times happened in my life, "I will give you special strength in those times. Imagine that your life is a walk along the shore with me. If some days there is only one set of footprints in the sand, it's not because I have left you, but because I am carrying you!" This is referred to in the poem "Footprints in the Sand". I have two pictures of "Footprints in the Sand" - one in my living room, one in my bedroom. They are great reminders from God :)

"My gift of undeserved grace is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak." (2 Corinthians 12:9) Count on it!

We have a small picture of "Footprints" hanging in our office and I love the poem!
It's such a comfort and always reminds me of this verse:

Deuteronomy 31:8
And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”


Have a very blessed day, dear sister!

God's Grace.

i know how that feels, kitty. but it's good to know and be reminded that God is always with us. He's going to carry us when we're tired from all the pressures.

Amen to that Pia! God loves us so much, and we can just rest in Him when we feel fragile and tired.
