Sometimes when we experience difficulties in life all we want to do is ‘fix it’ or ‘get through it’ as quickly as possible. In these moments, I am reminded of a chorus in a hymn written by Larnelle Harris, “It’s not in trying but in trusting. It’s not in running but in resting. It’s not in wondering but in praying that we find the strength of the Lord.” Trusting, resting, and praying are the pillars that will sustain us through the various storms and trials that we often endure! I have learn, the futility of striving so often leaves me frustrated, exhausted, and hopeless but thank God, His Holy Spirit steps into my situation(s) only to console, encourage, and assure me that I can and will find strength in the Lord when I let Him lead! The strength we need for daily living is only found in the Lord; not in no one or nothing else! Jesus said He would never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5) and the last time I checked never means never!
