Strong One


"When you're the strong one of the family, you must be the strong one all the time, not just when it's convenient." Jennifer Chiaverini

As I read this line in a book, it made me stop and think. If you find yourself in this position, "the strong one," I feel you have the gift of serving others over yourself. You are a fixer, so it is important to keep your trust in God close. You grow weary. Recharging with God's peace is essential for endurance.

Sometimes, hard decisions must be made, but they must be made with love, the kind God shows us. This takes great strength; we must model the Armor of God to keep our hearts full of His love!



Just like the automobile has its strong body to protect what's inside from unpredictable weather, we must prepare ourselves to be the strong ones as the storms of life break all around us. It's a hard, hard world, but remember, God overcomes and so can we. Do you know Jesus as your Savior?

I remember this song from my childhood. I took Jesus as my Savior; you take him, too...



"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness in this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 11:13-16
