Patience and Strength

I already feel like I'm losing the battle today.

Steff~ I will pray for you to be strengthened, encouraged, and carried through your day!
Isaiah 40: 11, 28-29
11 He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young.
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

I'm so sorry you feel like that. I hate those days that you wanna give up before you start.

I will be praying for you. Its going to get better. You'll find your groove girl and this will all be a memory and you will be proud of yourself because you SURVIVED!

His grace is sufficient sister, His power is made perfect in our weakness. Praying the enemy doesn't win the battle for your mind today but that the King of King settles your heart and gives you great peace in Him.

Praying in Texas!

Hang in there! Those first few weeks are the hardest! Feel free to email me privately if you want to talk!

So I was having that type of day yesterday. Then I remembered:
Greater is he who is in me than he who is in the world. Know you are thought of often and prayed for. Donna

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.

We are so lucky to have a Savior to deliver us from days like this. I have had my share. Praying for your strength today.

Praying for you, Stef.

Brandi said...

Apparently. . we should have called each other this morning!

Love you!

Know well those feelings! Emily is right, the first few months are the hardest.....especially after what all you have been through to get here! Give yourself permission to "feel" what you have experienced and to be weak (in our weakness he is made strong!). That is tough for us "strong women"! Praying for you today...which I think is tomorrow from this post! :)
