“NOT EVERYONE IS AS STRONG AS YOU, MS. NIKKI”
That was from my sweetie daughter, Julie, yesterday. I used the conversation as an opportunity to share with her some of my weaknesses (mostly depressing and negative thinking) and how I’ve found that I must be a very regimented person to tackle them. I’m talking appointments with God every morning, writing posts, going for a run with God, drinking my awful tasting smoothie, fasting (leaning on God), eating healthily, continually running to God throughout the day to hear from Him. NO SHAME IN MY GAME; GOD, I NEED YOU!!!
I told her how this year has been what I describe as a year of a million falls, but God has helped me to get back up a million and one. I was so happy that God AGAIN got involved in our conversation when this post showed up at my 10:30 appointment with God, and I read page 30 of our family’s website, werollwithgod.com about one of my falls:
“In that video, I talked all about the appointments with the boys and how we read that God delights in every detail of our lives. Well, fast forward a few hours, WHEN I GOT KNOCKED DOWN AND WENT CRYING TO GOD, unbelievably this showed up from exactly where I had last left off in the book ‘He and I’, written as if God was speaking:
“I’m guiding every detail of your life.” (Wink! Wink!)…
“Thus begins your journey of profound reliance on Me. It is a faith-walk, taken one step at a time, leaning on Me, as much as you need. This is not a path of continual success, BUT OF MULTIPLE FAILURES. However, each failure is followed by a growth spurt, nourished by increased reliance on Me. Enjoy the blessedness of a victorious life through deepening your dependence on Me… The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” – Jesus Calling”
Who would have thought my constant falls would be such an important life lesson to share with my daughters and you guys? I can boast of my weaknesses; God uses them for my good! THE MULTIPLE FAILURES TAUGHT ME TO RELY EVEN MORE ON GOD. Sweet! This life is rigged to get us down, but God has truly been my GREATEST friend. He is available 24/7 to assist us. As you seek Him, you will find Him! Wink! Wink! Learn more at WEROLLWITHGOD.COM.
