Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Walking Through Builds Strength

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:7-10 ~

Hello friends (smile) Believe me when I tell you, I had every intention of writing about something else today. (nervous smile) I woke up with another message. It’s a beautiful thing when we’re given wisdom from above; and obedient to sowing words of encouragement, to someone to keep walking through. Thank you Lord!

Walking through builds strength to walk by faith trusting God. (smile) Yesterday was not a bad day, per se, but my eyes were opened to fully understand how actions speak louder than words and the blessings of daily forgiveness brings strength. (smile)

Strength from within is powerful. The joy of The Lord is strength. Renewing the mind becomes strength. Faith is strength. Looking at things and stuff, or X, Y and Z, from a different perspective brings strength. Prayer brings strength.

Iron sharpens iron. Learning NOT to participate in every idle conversation is strength. It’s easy to do when we keep our focus and stay balanced. Positivity breeds positivity.

Remembering to breathe calmly and practice the pause gives strength to continue walking through, as God will provide the next step, as we remain focused on Him.

Blessings today, by faith, as we get stronger walking through this day! (smile)
