The strenght of the Lord is greater than mine.

2 Sep

There is something so deliciously satisfying about relying on the Lord to push your body through physical pain.

Whether its during a workout, when you are trying to tone  your body to treat it as the Lord had intended.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

1 Corinthians 6: 19-20

Or during wound care when the only thing you can do is grit your teeth and bear the pain, as they scrape away the flesh that you have worked so hard to grow.

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.

Jeremiah 17:14

The terrible morning sickness that so many of my friends are experiencing.

Or the physical pain you experience when someone you love is hurt.

All of these things make our faith in the Lord grow stronger. We have no security apart from Him along, we can not rest in the things of this world. No amount of work on our part will make us safe and happy.

But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord; He is their stronghold in times of trouble.

Psalms 37: 39
