It is so easy to get sucked into the world around us. There is a certain routine that life has. We often forget to stop and thank the Lord for the extra boost of energy and the strength to accomplish the daily task when we feel like giving up. Just as the Psalmist writes “you hold my eyelids open,” I know I have been in that situation with my daily routine of being a wife and grad student.
I am guilty of not taking the time to stop and thank the Lord for the extra push. I believe the Lord does this sometimes without us even asking, because he knows us inside and out. Just as he knows how much we can handle, he will provide the strength needed to finish the project that is set in front of us. With God we can overcome all things.
As we are reflecting on what the Lord has done for us it is important for us to thank him for his faithfulness in providing the strength and encouragement we need for our daily life, even when we feel like we do not deserve it. Today thank the Lord for his influence in your life. Thank him for paying the ultimate price so you don’t have to suffer the way he did. Thank him for loving you.
