My Strength…

Have you ever found yourself singing this song:

My life is in You, Lord,
My strength is in You, Lord
My hope is in You, Lord
In You, it’s in You.

But living like this:

My life is in Me, Lord,

My strength is in Me, Lord

My hope is in Me, Lord

In Me, it’s in Me.

As I was washing dishes tonight, this was my little “God-smack” about life. It seems that some of my hopes, and efforts toward such, have been rooted in ME. In MY ability to achieve those results. Needless to say, it didn’t work out that way. In fact, it seems to have blown up in my face.

Its amazing how easy it is to start placing our hope in our own abilities, in our own strength and in our own efforts. Though all those things are God-given, if we place our trust in what’s been given, versus the Giver, we’re sure to come up short at the end of our efforts.

So, may you begin humming this little song in your head and may it remind you to run your life, your strength, your hopes, and your efforts through the “me filter” so that they can be placed fully in the Lord.
