God's Got This!

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13

This is the verse I have been holding onto. You see, you don't know how much more you can do until the demand is placed on you. I've been doing at least ten hours a week for my internship with a publishing company, starting on my senior project, (which is a twelve-page inspirational disability magazine),helping with publications, along with various papers, homework and tests. After waiting for a month, I will finally start physical therapy for my foot. This will be at least two times a week-maybe even three if they think it's necessary.

I said all of that to say this. Most people get stressed, hyperventilate, and become grouches when their schedule is piled with EVEN more stuff to do. That's because they are relying on their ability and not God. I'm so thankful that I don't have to rely on myself to get all of these things done. My God is on my side, helping me and giving me the grace to take each day as it comes. While my schedule will become more chaotic in the next few days, His grace will remain the same, ready to refresh me each morning. 

That's not to say this week wasn't a challenge. I was stressed trying to get interviews scheduled, homework done, and just normal everyday stuff. I even freaked out about my senior project thinking I was going in the wrong direction. After a phone call to my mom, things were okay because she reminded me that as much as I love blogging and helping others, those weren't priority right now. It's so easy to let the devil steal your energy and time doing "stuff", but it has nothing to do with your assignment from God. Yes, I was guilty of that! After I said no more, I've had a peace I haven't had, even though in the natural it looks like I should be concerned. I refuse to let the enemy steal my joy. I've said, "God's got this!"

Let Him carry you! I challenge you to rest in Him this week!
