“But God” – 2 Precious Words To Cling to in Our Suffering

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)

It is amazing how God works. When you least expect it, it happens. I haven’t written anything for years on the computer because I didn’t think I could but guess what? Here I am. Writing to you. . .whoever you are. You see, I’ve been here before. Years ago I had written devotionals like this for Rest Ministries and thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I have multiple sclerosis and I am a quadriplegic, in a wheelchair. I am not able to do hardly anything for myself–things like eating, bathing, going to the bathroom, brushing my teeth.

BUT GOD — These are 2 of my favorite words in the Bible – “But God.”

God has also given me a beautiful husband, who sees me not for what I can do, but for who I am.
God has given me a beautiful caregiver who has spent the whole morning helping me use this computer software.
God has given me software that allows me to speak my devotional to you.

God is so good to me in so many ways. He strengthens me each day with His amazing Grace and His amazing love.

“When I am weak, He is strong.” How well I have learned that! What ever you are facing today, cry out to Him and He Will help you to endure it. Keep seeking the things above and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, The Author and Perfecter of our faith.
