“Go in the strength you have…” (Judges 6:14)
So often, Lord I have no strength left. The world crushes my hopes and zaps my energy. I don’t think I can go on.
Yet you tell me to “go in the strength” I have.
Lord, when all seems hopeless, I still go on.
Lord, when everything takes an effort, I still try.
Lord with your help, your strength, I can take one more step, live one more day.
I used to think this verse referred to my strength, but now realize I possess access to Your limitless strength.
Your strength makes all the difference.
I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth and His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.
I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
From snares of the devil,
From temptations of vices,
From every one who desires me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a multitude. St. Patrick
Thanks my friend for keeping me reminded of where my strength truly is…Clella
