Power revisited!

Power is often referred to as the ability to control or manipulate a situation.  We are told that we have the power to change our surroundings through various means such as prayer, force, or other means.  I am told that having faith in God can cause mountains in your life to move.  Of this I am a firm believer, but my Power seems to be nonexistent in one area of my life given that others control it. But I have taken my power back! 

I have taken my power to be happy and deal with the foolishness in my life away from the intern site.  I have been blessed to work at the site and so grateful I made the call to them last summer.  I am faced with a lack of words to describe my experience there!!

I also have the power to choose to be silent about all that is going wrong in my life. So this post will be short.  In spite of the insensitively of others, I am still moving forward in what God has purposed for my life.  I have never been forsaken by him and I will still trust him.  That sustains me each day!! I have to constantly remind myself of my favorite biblical verse Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”.

 I am going to check the city out this week.  I am going to take time for me!
