About The Author:

Sheree Murphy lives with her husband and 3 dogs.
She believes that each day is a gift to be used
for God's glory. Some days she fails miserably,
but God isn't finished with her yet.
See Philippians 1:6.

"His pleasure is not in the strength of
the horse, nor His delight in the legs of
a man; the LORD delights in those who
fear Him, who put their hope in His
unfailing love." (Psalm 147:10-11 NIV)

After I accepted Jesus into my heart, it
still took me a while to realize that God
doesn't need or want my help. There is
no problem too big nor too small for Him
to handle. Nothing is impossible for God.
All He asks of us, is that we be faithful.
We don't have to strive or stress that
our performance is adequate. He uses the
weak things of the world to reveal His glory.

Isaiah 43:29-31NIV, "He gives strength to
the weary and increases the power of the
weak. Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall; but those
who hope in the LORD will renew their
strength, they will soar on wings like
eagles; they will run and not grow
weary, they will walk and not faint."

Recently my symptoms changed and increased.
Pain and lack of sleep had left me feeling
useless and defeated. These verses were
a great reminder for me. My strength,
power and hope come from Him and not from
myself. I may feel inadequate, but He will
make me adequate for anything that He sets
before me. The key is to do what He wills,
not what I have planned. My house is not
spotless and many things are left undone.
But through it, He is teaching me to take
my eyes off of my surroundings and
circumstances and to focus solely on Him.
He delights in me, not in what I can accomplish.

God has our best interests at heart. He knows when we need to rest and when we are ready to move forward. He is delighted when we trust Him. When we are willing to rest in His unfailing love for us. When we have child-like faith and look at Him with awe and wonder and give Him the respect and reverence that He deserves.
