Look to the Lord for His Strength

God, help me to see my life as you see it. Are You Searching? Are you continually searching for God and looking to Him for strength but regress in fear when He comes near? God created us out of His love and He wants us to reach out to Him and allow Him to love us. He always stands in a position of grace waiting for us to come to Him as He woos us. As in the Prodigal story (Luke 15:11-32) the father saw his son far away in the distance and he began to run to him. He was anxious to see his son and welcome him home. God only needs to see you coming as you call upon Him and He runs to meet you where you are just as you are. Look to God for his strength; seek his face always.

God was bringing me full circle to the meaning of these verses that I had read numerous times but until that day they had not touched my heart. Acceptance is where I found myself. All things come from God, through God, and all for his glory. Romans 11:36 Offer All to God Today I offer all to God, all that I am, all that I will be, and all that I hold in my hands to Him relinquishing control to Him thanking Him for His diligence in pursuing me and His patience in waiting for me to surrender fully to Him. Gratefulness and joy fills my heart today as I accept life is difficult but rest in His love, grace and peace. God is aware of how our problems originated and He is more concerned with us finding answers to our problems. I believe that the ultimate answer...
