Lenten Photo a Day Challenge - Day 22: Strength

Who do you think of when you think of strength?  One of the first people that come to mind for me is my husband.  He's kind of the strong, silent type.  One of the things I admire most about him is that he'd be the first to admit that any strength he appears to have is not his own.  He relies on a strength bigger than any of us are capable of.  There are many, many places in scripture than refer to God as our source of strength.  One of my favorites is Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Did you catch that? He is very present. The verb used is present, active, now.  Not later, not only when we need it, but God and His strength is available to us at all times.  Lean into that.  Boast not about any strength that we may or may not have.  Boast only in Christ and what our Father is for us.
