Dailies~ In His Word 2019

Dailies ~in His Word
June 7, 2019
When you awaken from a fitful nights sleep it can be easy to look at the day as a bother, or something to endure. When you open the Word of God, planning to turn to a different scripture but the highlighted words catch your eyes and you read encouragement for your day it is definitely a “God thing” as they say.  This morning it was an amazingly tired Teresa who maneuvered herself out of bed with stiffness of someone who had not been comfortable in bed all night. After saying a quick prayer for strength and doing a few stretches I padded down the hall to get coffee and my Bible. The scripture that caught me was this;
Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food;

Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls—
 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills. Habakkuk 3:17-19
I knew I was able to rise up and do what was on my list for the day even though I was tired from lack of sleep, even though my body felt weak; my God is with me always! He would give me strength!

It reminded me of the poem I wrote a few years back, and was as encouraging to me as I read the deer’s feet quote above.
 I am not forsaken
Though the winds blow my sails
I am not forsaken
 Though the world may think I’ve failed
I am not forsaken
Even though I may look weak
I am not forsaken,
The Lord God made me speak!

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Heavenly Father, help me to always remember that You are able to be my strength when my body fails, or falters with age someday that You will always be there to lift me up and give me feet to walk upon the mountains and give me words to speak! In Jesus’ name, amen
