May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy. Colossians 1:11
I have four more to share.
Kevin has been leading the girls through devotional and it's a really sweet thing when they stop to consider the verse or meaning at a deeper level (if even for a minute or so - sometimes that's all you get)! It was out of one of these devotionals that Avery requested an acrostic for "steadfast." I hope she likes it and you do too!
The word "patience" struck me in the verse above and it's one of my biggest struggles, so that lead me to consider its meaning more. These things are not in our power, but "according to his glorious might"....Amen!! Gives me chills knowing He wants to "strengthen us with all power"
He dwells in us giving us strength and power to live according to what we have been called!!! Through this we conquer sin and through this we obtain the fruit of the spirit!!!
....and because of this we "worship" in all things because all are HIS!!! So may everything we do glorify God as we worship Him.
