The Strength of My Heart

I’m still here. Glad to have a moment to breathe and share with you some things that have been going on.  When I reflect back on the past month (ok….five weeks) I realize that I’ve pretty much been doing the same thing each week day: Go to school, come home, piano practice, teach piano (a couple days a week), do homework, go to bed.  Each day is a new start to this vicious cycle.  To say it’s been stressful would be an understatement.

But I’m not writing this to tell you how crazy my life has been or how stressful things are.  I want to let you know that God has proven to me over and over again that He’s in control of every situation in my life.  When I feel like my seams are coming loose and I’m about to fall apart, He shows me through his Word and through others in my life that it’s ONLY with Him that I can accomplish all that’s necessary.  There is NO way that I could make it through each day without Him holding me up to keep me from falling flat on my face.  Whoever says that God is not active in the lives of His children has never experienced what I have these past few weeks.

Psalm 73:26  My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Psalm 18:1,2  I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
