No Junk Here

So I came across a page in my devotional book prompted by the scripture found in Genesis 18:14: “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

Here were the ramblings of my heart written down on paper that day … my prayer is that you may be blessed and encouraged in reading this.

In my heart of hearts, I know there isn’t anything too hard for the Lord. Yet, whenever I look within myself, I can’t help but see my own flaws and limitations. I don’t always like what I see. But if I can just remember that whenever I focus on my troubles, then God seems to fade into the background of my life – that’s half the battle right there!

Lord, help me to see with Your eyes. Help me to remember I am complete in You. It’s not within myself, my abilities, my talents, or even my own faith. IT IS BECAUSE OF YOU! Everything I am is because of You. Apart from You, I can do nothing. Help me Lord to remember You are for me. You don’t make junk. What may be impossible for me is POSSIBLE with You. What I can’t – You CAN. Nothing is impossible, unattainable, unreachable, or unbearable when my heart is fixed on my Lord and my Savior!

Keep me focused, Oh God.

  1. Beautiful Mary and lifted me up today thank you. I was meant to read this today.

  2. It’s hard to really comprehend that my Lord sees me as already complete. As beautiful and holy. He sees me as what I will be, not what I currently am. When I look at myself with MY eyes, I see selfishness, pride, and all manner of ugliness. I have to consciously put on my ‘God-glasses’ and trust in His vision and strength rather than my own. (Does that make any sense?) Beautiful post, Mary!

    • Thank you for commenting. I shall remember the “God-glasses” phrase you made, Rebeca 😉 And we must remember that we ARE complete in Him, even when we feel or see differently. There lies our fighting the good fight of faith walk.

  3. Nice Corrie Ten Boom quote.
    As to the verse Genesis 18:14—yes, God can do anything, and sometimes I resent Him for my own inability to do everything. Then I snap to and realize I have to let Him do for me, but on His time. Right now, I’m waiting for Him to release me from a situation. I know He will and He can.

    • Knowing He can do anything. Check. Nothing is too hard for Him. Check. Waiting for His timing … sigh
      I love this quote I read a while back: “God loves you just the way you are, but He loves you too much to leave you the way you are.”

I think I'm getting addicted to comments. Please feed the addict & leave a reply.
