Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within us… (Eph. 3:20).
Some mornings, I don’t really feel it. I don’t feel “the power at work within me.”
This may or may not be one of those mornings.
On those mornings I wake up feeling like I haven’t even gone to bed yet, as if my alarm clock is a liar from the pit of hell.
I feel tired.
I feel stressed.
I feel useless.
I feel hopeless.
I feel broken.
I feel empty.
I feel old.
I feel weak.
Guess what, Beloved?
My feelings are full of beans. I know this, because I serve a God who tells the truth–who is the Truth–and he tells me that his Holy Spirit is at work in me right here, right now. He is filling me, strengthening me, protecting me, empowering me, building me, guiding me, transforming me into the image of the One who created me with his very breath and loved me to the depths of hell
Oh Lord, let me not be ruled by my feelings,
They are such fickle masters,
But let me trust you and walk in your truth
Today and always
Happy Tuesday, Beloved.
