He will Carry You

One of the times that I have always loved the most is the time when I go through a trial. Yes, that's what I said.I love trials, especially when I pass through them and I look back from the other side and know full well Who carried me.. Not a one of us has been through life without experiencing a time that affected us mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is a time when the presence of God is never more real in your life. At least that's how it is for me. I love the times that He puts me down on my rear and I am in the position of knowing without a shadow of doubt that it is He is getting my attention. I can feel Him. I can sense His love and can bask in His glory. When we are at our weakest, He is strong. You know, He's always strong but WE can't always realize that until we "ARE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD." Getting us "still" in this day and time is a tough thing.......not for God, but for us. There is way too much to do and there is never a time when we truly have nothing to do. God's timing and ours certainly doesn't jive. There is not an opportune time to STOP and let God have your full attention. It reminds me of a mother who is trying to get the attention of her child. She takes him with her hands on each side of his face and says, "Listen to me!" I can vividly remember those days. My Mom wasn't a screamer but I am surprised I didn't have bruises on my face when she needed my full, undivided attention. I knew she meant business. That's the wonderful and loving way the Father handles us.
He grasps us with His loving hands, into his loving arms, and wraps us up in the blanket of His love.I hope I always make myself available to His touch. It's always there for the taking.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
