I Am Strong

What's On My Heart Today "I Am Strong"
 
"I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord..." Psalm 121:1-2

Are you strong enough to carry the world on your shoulders? Do you keep a brave face to the world and fall apart when no one was looking? As women, we often think that we can be all things to all people but one day you will wake up and your strength will be depleted. Have you given so much that you have nothing left for yourself? What then? Will you be vulnerable enough to ask for help? Humble enough to admit your weakness. Confident enough to accept help? Scripture tells us "Our Help Comes From the Lord." If you feel you have nothing left to give, go to a quiet place and breathe in the sweet essence of God's Presence.

The Heart of David

What's On My Heart Today "The Heart of David" 
 
 "After removing Saul, he made David their king. He testified concerning him: I have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do." Acts 13:22
 
What was so special about this King, warrior, musician, lyricist, called David that God loved so much? David, son of Jesse was an amazing man of God. But on occasion, he really messed up. In fact, he was downright bad. But God wasn't looking at David's actions when He called David "a man after my own heart." That has a lot to say about God's loving kindness. You see, God wasn't looking for a perfect person in David. He was looking for a man after His own heart. What characteristics did David posses to qualify for such a exalted position? David possessed humbleness, reverence, respect, trust, love, devoted, faithful, obedient, and repentant. These are the attributes that we should all inspire to posses. Oh! That God would look at our hearts and see a man or women "after his own heart!"
