33 – Real Strength

A young woman looked at the pile of bills on her kitchen table and sighed. She had been working two jobs just to make ends meet, but it still wasn’t enough. She was behind on her rent, her car payment, and her credit card bills. She felt like she was drowning.

One day, she was talking to her friend about her financial problems. Her friend reminded her of the Bible verse Philippians 4:13. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” her friend said.

The young woman thought about that verse for a long time. She realized that she had been trying to do everything on her own. She had been trying to be strong and independent, but she was only making herself more stressed and exhausted.

The next day, the young woman decided to turn her problems over to God. She prayed and asked for His help. She also started reading the Bible more often.

As she read the Bible, she learned that God is a loving and caring God. He wants to help us in our times of need. He is our strength and our refuge.

The young woman started to feel more hopeful. She knew that God was with her, and that He would help her through her problems. She started to pray more often, and she started to trust God more.

Slowly but surely, things started to get better for the young woman. She started to make more money at her jobs. She was able to catch up on her bills. She even started to save some money.

The young woman was so grateful to God for His help. She realized that she couldn’t have done it on her own. She needed God’s strength and His guidance.

The young woman’s story is an inspiration to us all. It shows us that we can overcome any obstacle if we have faith in God. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Philippians 4:13
