Strength & Plan

It’s Tuesday, so I am going to take the opportunity to work last week’s 5 Minute Friday prompt into today’s Tuesday @ 10 prompt.

The prompts are Plan & Strength respectively.

Ready? GO

Strength – I don’t feel like I have any left.

Plan – I had one, it’s kind of falling apart now…

Circumstances beyond my control (which kills me!) have completely torn me down – and each time it seems the plan is back on track, something else comes along & knocks it off.

And, most days, I really just don’t have the strength to deal with it much longer. And, I’m beginning to feel like God is as far away from it all as possible, just watching things fall apart around me all over again…

But, that’s just how I feel… I know feelings lie. I know He has brought me through more trying times than this… Though, this time feels hopeless. I feel helpless again. Like nothing is working; like every decision has been the wrong one. And, I’m trapped. Like everything is out of my control.

When will He show up? I hope He shows up soon, because I’ve lost my own strength & don’t have a plan D-Z…

  1. Sorry to hear you’re going through such a frustrating difficult time 😦 I’m praying for God to give you peace, strength & rest. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”-Isaiah 41:10
    “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”-Isaiah 43:2
    “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”-Romans 8:31

    1. Thank you, my friend. I feel so blessed that we met at VU! You are a constant encouragement to me, and I hope I can be that for you sometimes! Once things quiet down, we will have to meet up for lunch & catch up, outside of the interweb world 🙂


  2. So sorry you are feeling this way. May His truth from Psalm 27:13 flood your heart & soul … “Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.” I also just finished reading “Life Unstuck” by Pat Layton which I highly recommend. I will be posting my review of it on my blog in the morning. It was excellent. She very well explains that God wants to unstuck us and move us into a place of abundant living. Blessings!

    1. Thanks for reading & the encouragement. That verse is something I must cling to, seeing the Lord’s goodness in all things. I will also check out that book when I have a chance. Thank you.


  3. I have been right where you are and was reminded in my quiet time a few weeks back the story of Joseph. There were over twenty years between the dream he had the promise of the dream coming to pass. I wonder how many times Joseph felt the same way we feel? God had a far BIGGER plan going on than he, you or I could have ever thought possible. Continue to plan, but trust He orders your steps. Lean not unto your own understanding in all your ways continue to acknowledge Him and He will direct your path! Preaching to myself this afternoon! His ways are so much more vast in detail than we could dream. He orchestrates all of the notes of our lives together to create a beautiful masterpiece! Praying for you and so glad I decided to link up this afternoon, its never too late to encourage another! May the joy of the Lord strengthen you and may you run and not grow weary, in due time you shall reap a harvest and this is your promise what you sow in tears you shall reap in joy!

    As for me I will always have hope!
