Are you strong enough? I’m not.

The song “Strong Enough” by Matthew West came on and I feel like that song tells my story. My mother is an alcoholic and I haven’t seen her in over a year because of it, which has been really hard for me. I’ve struggled with repetitive sins of my own for a long time. I’m going into my senior year of high school and I’m terrified of making decisions about college. I want to move forward in my walk with God, but sometimes I feel like I get so overwhelmed with everything I’m carrying that I can’t take one more step. I just have to remind myself that I am NOT strong enough to do this- to do anything- on my own. But He is; He is more than strong enough to carry my burdens and to carry me. And He has a plan; He knows where I’m going to go and what I’m going to do. I’m so grateful that God, the Lord of everything, is looking out for me. And I have the courage to take those weary steps forward in my life, closer to Him and what He wants for me, knowing that He is right there next to me.
