Reflection 331: Nothing Beyond Your Strength


It’s important to know that the Lord will never allow you to carry a cross that is beyond your strength.  Do you believe this?  If you do, it should help you to set your eyes on the road ahead and plunge forward doing the Will of God.  If struggles come your way, even if they are great, know with certainty that the Lord is with you, carrying you if needed, through everything you face in life.  Nothing can keep you from His Mercy and His perfect Will if you keep your eyes on Him (See Diary #1607).

Reflect upon the path that you believe the Lord has set before you.  What obstacles do you perceive to be too great to overcome?  Whatever it is, you must face them with confidence and absolute trust in our Lord.  As painful as some things may be, nothing is beyond the Mercy of God. He will transform the rough path before you into a smooth road if you let Him. 

Lord, I do believe that You are always with me, leading me and protecting me.  When I face some hardship in life, help me to see it as an opportunity to rely more on Your grace.  I know that I can do all things You call me to, dear Lord.  I commit to walking the road You have laid out for me.  Jesus, I trust in You.
