A great life requires quiet strength.
A strength that gets up when it is tired.
Does the right thing when it doesn’t feel like it.
Holds on when it wants to let go.
Pushes through when it would be easier to quit.
It isn’t pretty.
It is strong.
It has scars.
Quiet strength doesn’t stop.
“So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.”
Colossians 3:12- MSG
It is the kind of strength that Jesus demonstrated every day as He walked with mankind and made his way to the cross.
The life that God has called you to live requires a quiet strength and a steely determination.
You can’t do it without Jesus and He doesn’t ask you to.
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,” Ephesians 3:16 NIV
The quiet strength of God defies logic and grows in what seems to be an impossible place.
Don’t give up.
Draw strength from Jesus today and keep doing what God is calling you to do.
I get the sense from your posts that you’re not so much a happy, fulfilled Christian.
You’re ALWAYS talking about WORK, STRUGGLE, trials, hope … for a better day.
When are you going to lay down all your efforts, and allow GOD to BE GOD? Let HIM do the work, that not only HE can do, but you can NOT.
