Help in Troubled Times -Free Download- Strength

20120303_free_download_strength

There once was I time when I thought I had things figured out…
“If I just put my mind to it and work really, really, really hard,” I said, “I’ll make ____ successful.”

Whether my “blank” was family, school, career, or finances, I thought I was in control and if it didn’t work out….well…then it’s my own fault.

Then life rolls around and beats you up a little.
Suddenly, I realized I’m not in control at all. Despite your best efforts things happen and you could be on an entirely different path then the one you wanted.

That’s why today’s free download is so comforting.
God said, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways.” Is. 55: 8 and “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Cor. 12:9

Where I come up short, my heavenly Father takes over. I don’t have to be in control. And that is a relief. Do you know the sound a bottle of soda makes when you open it *Pishhhhhhhhh*? That’s how I feel as my stress is relieved when I meditate on this scripture. It was once bottled up, but now is released.

It’s not easy. I have to keep reminding myself this very thing.
I may not want to be where I’m at in life right now, but that’s okay. I will let God be in control and trust in the end result.

I hope this has helped you especially if you find yourself in a difficult situation. You may download this free artwork and use it for yourself or maybe give to a friend.
