STRENGTH


Who of us doesn’t need strength these days?


We need the real thing.


Not some vain hope to keep us going.


Not some bitter hatred to drive us further into the darkness.


But the strength of integrity.


The strength of a focused life.


The Lord is my light and my salvation,

Whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the strength of my life,

Of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27


Of course, the Lord can only be my strength if I abandon my vanities and give him my attention.


My full attention.


If the Lord doesn’t seem to come when I call, I need to wait.


After all, he is not my servant.


Hopefully, I am his.


Power from on high comes to those who know how to focus and wait.


And who obey when the light begins to shine.


I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.


Wait on the Lord:: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart.


Wait, I say, on the Lord,.
