God’s Birthday Gift To Me

Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

That is one of the most important verses in the Bible. It is something I repeat to myself and pray about when I am scared or anxious or feeling depressed.

The only One who knew this was God, it was one of our special prayers.

However, recently  I have been feeling depressed about a few things, the biggest being my writing. I am trying to be a children’s author and the process of finding an agent is very difficult, you put a lot of effort in to querying and most agencies will only send a reply if they’re interested.

This can become frustrating and makes me question if I am good enough.

I have been struggling to even continue writing.

While all this is going on my birthday came and my wife did a great job throwing me a mini party, it was a lot of fun, yet nice and relaxing. She handed me one of my last gifts, it was a small box.

I opened it, it was a wooden pen with a Bible Verse,
Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

I couldn’t believe it. I had never told her how special that verse was to me and haven’t  even opened up to her about my struggle lately.

How amazing is that?

It truly was a gift from God.

I am very blessed man, thank you God for everything.

Thank you God for my wonderful wife, she is the best gift I have ever received.

Have a blessed week,
Chris

Faith and Healing.

My wife is young,  she’s only 30. (Sorry honey). I mean she’s only 29 for the second time in a row. But even at her young age she is already dealing with arthritis.

The other night the pain in her hand was so severe she couldn’t concentrate on anything. She described it as feeling like a hot knife was piercing through her hand. After awhile and a lot of agony, she told me she didn’t know what to do about it.

I asked her to pray with me. I put my hand on top of hers  and we prayed silently. The pain ceased immediately. It was a miracle. God is good.

Well a few days past, the wife and I were both stressed. I’m finishing up my job at the end of June and we don’t know what’s next for me. This has led to bickering, doubt, depression, anger. Then it hit me. How soon we forget?  God had just healed over my wife, God has helped us through so many problems, yet here we are worried. We need to have faith. The Lord will provide. Once you have that peace in your heart, all that worry goes away.

Here is some Bible verses on Healing and Faith.
