Blessings of Strength

Greetings everyone,

I wanted to share with you that I have been blessed in learning to lean on my Heavenly Father for His strength to get me through all kinds of challenges.

When I was a care giver for my dear husband, now with the Lord. I would face many challenges, his health care, our home, finances and many more. Many days I would awake wondering if I would have the strength to do all that was before me.

This verse took on a new meaning to me, as I continued to repeat it many times a day.

"I can do all things all things through Him who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13

Key words = all things.

His strength continues to still give me energy for new challenges I face.

The Greek word for strength means to put power in. That is indeed true, God will put power into you to make it through any situation.

Have a blessed day reflecting on this verse and enjoy the wonderful strength we have from our Heavenly Father.

Blessings, Doreen


  1. I love this verse too... it also provides me the strength I need to tackle the many challenges in my life. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful verse. Hugs, Karen

  2. I love the way the Greek gives complete meaning to our English words. Yes! He puts strength IN to us, not just a hand out! Thanks for sharing your faith, your love of Jesus!

  3. Thanks Doreen - you certainly have given me food for thought today. I know I feel it in my heart but often neglect to reflect on the meaning of faith.
