Over the past two months I have been under what I call spiritual construction. I have been seeking God and asking him for a deeper knowledge of him and his Word.
Well, He is definitely answering my prayers but it has not been without much discomfort and self evaluation. My friendships have changed, my job is very stressful, I feel a bit confused about my calling....etc, etc, etc.
In all of that, I find encouragement in this scripture Phillipians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. So whatever He sends me to and through, I can make it because He has given me strength.
I hope it encourages you.
