Strength?

Last night Aaron and I met with our awesome life group, this is a small group that in addition to bible study we have become quite close with over the past 3 years. The group is great. Currently we are starting a series with the church called "Life on Loan" and our group will be meeting (along with all the life groups in the church) weekly for 6 weeks. The series is challenging the church in Spiritual Growth - Aaron and I look forward to how God will use us in this study. Additionally, we are extremely appreciative that we will be with this strong group consistently over the next 6 weeks. (AMEN!)

Talking with the group one statement was repeated to me regarding this blog and the trial Aaron and I are in ... How strong we are. I laughed and said some days ... but truly, I am not strong at all. MY strength is just God. God is providing me with the strength, he is never very far.

Which brings me to the reading yesterday ....
Remaining in Him
"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you" John 15:7

God says if we remain in Him and let his words remain in us, we can ask of him whatever we want and He will answer. That does not mean we will always get what we want. It means that because we are so closely entwined with Christ, we will have His mind and will learn how to pray for what HE wants for our lives. When we do that we end up doing His will and seeing answers to our prayers.

PRAYER: Lord, continue to work in me. Provide me the strength needed daily. I know you love Jeremy, he is yours. I thank you for the time that I get to nurture and love him. I pray for his healing and growth in your name. I pray for all Prayer Warriors that they will remain in you, and feel your strength in their lives. AMEN

GRACE AND PEACE
