Word Art Wednesday: Nehemiah 8:10
Hello! Welcome back to my blog! This week over at Word Art Wednesday, they've given us the inspiration of Nehemiah 8:10. "The joy of the Lord is your strength." I love that! We can have joy in our lives no matter our circumstances because of the Lord! He is our strength!
I have been going through a lot of issues the past few years, and each time I try to fix things, it seems I make them worse. I have been trying so hard to act like a true Christian and be more Christ like, but I feel that I'm continually failing. WHY?! I've seriously tried.
I've sought council from God. I've sought council from my righteous and wonderful husband. I've sought council from my loving and fantastic parents. I've sought council from loving and Christian friends. To what feels like no avail.
So rough. Never being good enough. Never seeming to say the right thing or do anything that is okay. But you know what? I realized that I've been allowing others to tell me how to feel! I've been allowing others to make me second guess what the Lord wants me to do! I DO NOT have to do that! I can rejoice in the joy of the Lord and gain strength from His Atonement. I am good enough--if I'm trying my hardest to become like Christ! None of us are perfect--and that's okay! I just have to try each day to do a little better and to fix things the way Christ would, and I can find strength through my Savior!
This scripture came at a perfect time for me. I NEEDED it. Thank you, ladies! I now have a perfect printable to frame and put up to remind me that I can find joy in the strength of the Lord.
Oh, and so can YOU! Just click it to enlarge and then save. And then print! ;) Happy printing!!!
