Strong Enough?

"God has not placed you where you are now in this journey because you are a 'strong enough’ woman.



NO, He has you here because in the journey 

you will become strong.


You have only to trust that

 His grace is sufficient." 

~ Gay Idle



Sometimes a simple thought speaks volumes. This particular thought (see above quote) came to me this morning. 

I am learning that sometimes the journey I am on  looks like the winter picture of my garden (or of my discontent)...

...but God already sees the outcome of His will for my life...the culmination of the path I am traversing, even perhaps, the reason for the journey.  Springtime is a beautiful reminder of this to me!
How are you doing on the journey? 
 Please...share in the comment section for this post. I would love to hear how God is making His Word and will made known to you through your own journey!

  1. O so true. years ago I was struck by the passage in Jeremiah about God being the refiner...and it lit in my lil brain: if He sits and watches for the silver..there's got to be silver! and of course there is: Christ dwells in us..and God places us where Christ-strength can emerge and knock us off..with the wonder of His Grace!
    thanks for sharing this. if u tweet, pls tweet it!

  2. Hi Jenni! Thanks! Love your word, "Christ dwells in us...and God places us where Christ-strength can emerge..." I just want to be sure to allow His strength to come through and not dwell on the circumstances! I don't tweet...yet, but thanks for the encouragement.
