Ephesians 6:10

"A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power."

It's hard to be strong.
Sometimes, that's one of the most difficult things to do~ be strong.

When it seems like everything is crashing down around you, and nothing's looking up.

A fight with a friend, a bad grade on a test, a family member who is ill and not doing well.

Worry, fear, anxiety, stress... Things just keep piling on top of each other...

And you feel weak.
You feel the opposite of strong.
Words don't seem to help. Nothing helps.
You beat yourself up inside and you feel the tears fall.
You think, "No one could possibly understand my pain right now..."

But in the midst of all the darkness and pain,
You can find a light,
Because Paul writes in Ephesians to

"Be strong in the Lord and in HIS power,"
Not YOURS! You are not alone, because the Lord is there when no one else is,
And the Lord has seen your struggles and felt your pain.

So be strong IN HIM.
