Day Five

Day 5

No sugar or dairy

Have you noticed how fast the months have flown since 2017 came into being? Well September is moving at a snail’s pace!

Denying myself something I really enjoy is certainly not a detriment compared to someone without food and water, like in the aftermath of Harvey, or even the fires out West! Now, with Irma threatening so much devastation, all we can do is cry out to Jesus to spare those in its path. The verses from Habakkuk 3:17-18 really hit home with all these natural disasters that are taking place.

Though the fig tree should not blossom And there be no fruit on the vines, Though the yield of the olive should fail And the fields produce no food, Though the flock should be cut off from the fold And there be no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will exult in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my Salvation.

Verse 19 of that same chapter points to why we can rejoice and exult in the Lord Almighty even during times like these:

The Lord God IS my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, And makes me walk on high places.

September is moving at a snail’s pace, but that doesn’t diminish the power of God to give me the strength to accomplish what He’s called me to do. Where does your strength rest?
