I believe I can do only so much by myself. Oh, yes, I can try to do more than I can do alone, but it never works. I know my limitations, why don’t I follow them? Most likely because I have inflated my ego enough that I’ve declared that I don’t need help. So what happens? I fail and I get up and try again, whatever it was that I was trying to do, and fail again. A very intelligent person who has crossed my path told me once, when life gets too hard to stand, kneel. At the time, I thought they were really out there. I surmised in my infinite wisdom, that I really can’t do things from a kneeling position, that is even worse than standing. Besides, I have bad knees! How dare they say that to me! Then I realized what they were trying to tell me. I can’t live life by myself, it is too hard! There is only One who can help me really, when life gets too hard; and that One is God. He is always with me, but sometimes I forget. What’s my personal solution? To kneel before God daily; to live a life more plugged in to God; to pray more; to praise more; to consciously recognize God in my life on a daily basis whether I am doing the dishes or writing. Christ, You are my Lord and my Savior. You lived and died for me. I am so humbled that You think of me daily, love me unconditionally and are with me always, every day of my life. Lord, I live my life for You; I lift my days to You in gratitude for all that You have done for me. I love you Lord. Amen.
