Do you ever wonder if you are strong enough to endure what you’re going through? Strong enough to make it through? Strong enough to pass the test?
God is your strength
It’s not up to you. It’s up to God. You have the power of the great I AM living within you. He promises that you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength (Philippians 4:13).
You don’t have to possess the strength, you just have to be a vessel through which His strength flows through.
When you can’t, I AM can.
There is power in His name
“All the weak; find their strength; at the sound of Your great name.
Hungry souls; receive grace; at the sound of Your great name.
The fatherless; they find their rest; at the sound of Your great name.
Sick are healed; and the dead are raised; at the sound of Your great name…”
You just show up and let Him do the work through you. Let I AM be all that you need Him to be for you in your weakness. He promises that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it (Philippians 1:6)
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think when you have Him residing within you.
It’s not about who you are, it’s about who you are in Christ. He’s your courage. He’s your strength. He’s your wisdom. Rest in Him.
I don’t know where you are today, or how you are feeling, but He can meet you exactly where you are. Just say His name…Jesus.
Because of Him,
Even in times of crisis, every day can be a good day when you trust the promises of God.
Today is Going to be a Good Day
My newest book, Today is Going to be a Good Day: 90 Promises from God to Start Your Day Off Right is now available!
This uplifting devotional helps you make each day a good day no matter what is going on in your life.
When life conspires to drag us down with all of its troubles, it can be hard to keep our spirits up. In times of severe illness and depression, I learned that when I stand on God’s promises, despite my circumstances, every day can be a good day.
Each reading includes Scripture, reflection, prayer, and a recommended playlist song designed to help you live out Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”

I love this verse, and it has been my go to in times of trouble! HE tells me that I can do ALL things – not just somethings or some of the time. If I allow HIS strength to work through me, then I can face any and all things in this world! Thanks for the reminder.
I sometimes wonder if I am strong enough but then I put one foot in front of the other and I trust him to get me through. I love your blog. I loved the song.
Amen! Thank you for the huge dose of encouragement! I needed it today–I’m feeling rather inadequate about the tasks before me.
yes! simply AMEN! We constantly need to be reminded! I have been reflecting on how much God has given me..so why worry? Why feel we have to do it all ..we don’t! Blessings from #raralinkup!
Absolutely, Amen! How encouraging! Loved the choice of the music as well! It can be easy to wonder in any given day….often over the small things, maybe even the routine things we do regularly. #Titus2Tuesday
Yes! I love this encouragement. Thank you for sharing this today! Linking up with you at #TellHisStory
Beautiful encouragement both in words and in song 🙂 May we remember in all that we do – it is not who I am but Who He is that makes the difference. Blessings to you! xo
Who HE is makes ALL the difference. Aren’t we grateful for that knowledge and for Him, Joanne? Because of HIM, we are enough, we are strong enough. What a relief! Because of Him, #HopePrevails!
