The strength to carry on

The strength to carry on

For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.
Philippians 2:13 AMP

Its a Tuesday morning, the day I was supposed to get admitted into hospital but there’s been a delay and now I’m struggling to get out of bed. I’m demotivated to do anything, I’m trying to figure out how I feel and really be honest with myself. I took my medication but I’m still exhausted and I really don’t want to do anything today. The daily routine of waking up and going onto social media and just catching up on conversations I missed out on from passing out last night. I’m happy but I’m also sad. There’s so much that I need to do but I’m feeling so lost at the same time. I really didn’t know what to do but then a song of praise started playing over and over in my head and suddenly I was in the mood to just praise and worship. I decided to play the worship song and the tears started flowing down my face. This song really comes from the depth of my heart. I’m reminded of how blessed I am and how grateful I am for life. There’s a rock in my heart that was waiting to be pounded until the waters of worship came out. It’s been stored up and now it’s just flowing. I am looking forward to my day now. I’ve given my life, my to do lists and my worries to God. I’m gonna get out of bed and do what I can do. There’s something about praise and worship that gives strength to your bones. It revives your heart and your spirit. It’s like God uses worship to refill us.

My strength alone comes from him. Just like the Psalm says. Only he can do it. I’m trusting him to turn my life around and turn my graves into gardens… I just gave the song away lol. Graves into Gardens by Elevation Worship. I want you to listen to the lyrics properly and open up your heart. Let God heal you, refresh your soul and give you the fire back to continue to do his will. It was his will for me to be alive today and that means I have a purpose to accomplish today. I have the strength to carry on. Not because I have the physical strength but because the one who lives in me is stronger and can lift me up.
Next time you’re feeling stuck or you feel like giving up. Just stop. Get into Gods presence (your secret hiding place) and just worship. God will do what he said he will do and continue to do what He started. Let him take the lead today.
