I haven't done one of these in a while. And this weeks verse isn't even a new one...but one I return to over and over again during times in my life where I know I can't do it on my own.
Over and over (and over) again.
Because I have pretty much decided that I can't do life on my own.
And my pitiful attempts just reaffirm this truth to me.
Surely God is my help, he is the one that sustains me.
I love the definition of "sustain" and the tremendous encouragement housed within the idea of my God being my sustainer.
1. To keep in existence; to maintain.
2. To supply with necessities or nourishment, provide for.
3. To support from below, keep from falling; prop.
4. To bear up under; withstand.
The actions of being sustained by God just blow me away...
I am kept.
I am maintained.
I am supplied for.
I am supported.
Or more simply put: I don't have to do this life on my own and within my own capabilities.
Now if only I could remember this all the time.
