|That was me this morning returning home from my God tree and meeting my two beautiful daughters sitting at our dining room table working together to help me with some vital family hustle work. I was blown away by God’s kindness to my family and me. I told you guys that God has this verse coming up all over the place as a special message to me:|
“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
Seeing my daughters helping me and supporting me was all God at work in my life. I wrote this about a customer who showed up at our office this week and had this to say to them:“You guys may not understand your mom’s decisions now but stick with her. Support her. Love her. Your mom is in a heavenly realm where she makes decisions with God. Just trust her and listen to her.”The message sank in with Julie saying, “Forget summer break. Whatever you need my help with mom, just tell me.”
So to see Ember joining her to help me when I’m feeling so overwhelmed by my life truly brought me to my knees, thanking God for these beautiful daughters that He has helped us raise to be so hardworking, focused, intelligent, loving, and kind. I’m blessed and I give all the glory to God, our Co-Parent! I just walked to pick up a car from a mechanic shop, and I passed a sign with one word that has become so crucial to my relationship with God: Synergy.
Your girl here honestly hasn’t been her strongest self, but even at my lowest and weakest times, God has been with me, helping me as He promised in this post from over one year ago:Tell me about it! I say I fall a million times, but God helps me to get up a million and one. In fact, these falls are what push me even closer to God (Go figure).
Yesterday, a friend and I had one of our sacred conversations, and I said to her that my daughter and her son have great “SYNERGY.” After feeling a bit “weak” from the fasting I’m doing, I decided to just chill and have some time alone with God by reading my meditation book, Jesus Always. And of all words to show up, look what sweet message God had for me there in that weak moment (written as if He is speaking to me):”LEARN TO LEAN ON ME more and more. I know the full extent of your weakness, and that is where My powerful Presence meets you! My strength and your weakness fit together perfectly—in a wonderful SYNERGY (Wink! Wink!) designed long before your birth. Actually, My Power is most effective in weakness. This is counterintuitive and mysterious, yet it is true.
It is important to lean on Me when you’re feeling inadequate or overwhelmed. Remind yourself that you and I together are more than adequate. To sense my nearness, try closing your hand as if you’re holding on to Mine. For I take hold of your right hand and say to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.””No way that was a coincidence that that word synergy showed up minutes after that conversation with my friend. It was another glimmer of God’s invisible presence, reminding us that He will be with us even at our weakest.No shame! I can boast of my weaknesses because those are when God stands even stronger with me. He is with you too! Just tell Him you want a closer walk with Him.
It will not always be easy, but you will know without any doubt (like me this morning seeing my daughters at that table helping and supporting me) that God is always with us. It’s just for us to show up giving our best .01% as He gives us 99.9% support by working in the spiritual realm on our behalf. Wink! Wink!
