These verses spoke to me today as I begin a new homeschooling year, start teaching a new Bible study session next week, make notes toward writing another book and occasionally notice the housework that needs to be done around here.
The Lord upholds all who fall,
And raises up all who are bowed down. (Psalm 145:14 NKJV)
Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. (Ephesians 6:10)
...live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ... (Philippians 1:27)
For it is God who is working in you, [enabling you] both to will and to act for His good purpose. (Philippians 2:13)
Don't worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
I will make known the Lord's faithful love
[and] the Lord's praiseworthy acts,
because of all the Lord has done for us...(Isaiah 63:7)
Oh Lord, Your vast strength enables me to live for You. Remind me to take my worries to You and rest in Your peace.
