Feeble Knees

Hebrews 12:12 (NLT)
So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees.

For the past few days...weeks...okay, months....I've been having a problem with my knee. Many years ago, I was carrying a large, heavy box and tripped and fell (no, my middle name is not grace) and landed on my left knee on the sidewalk...OUCH!!! Ever since then, it's given me some problems (and, no...I didn't go to the doctor). Lately, it's gotten worse. Most days, I can't go up and down stairs like a normal person would....because I can't put my weight on that knee....which I know just adds to my weight, I mean...:(. I've also decided that Arthur has set up residence in it.....because....if you need to know if it's gonna rain....don't bother listening to the meteorologists....just call me!!!

One day a few weeks ago, the above verse of scripture was in one of my daily devotionals. It was one of those days that my knee was extra sore and achy. Did I think, "oh, what a coincidence? was definitely one of my "it's not odd, it's God" moments!!! I knew immediately that God was speaking to me thru that verse of scripture....about my poor feeble, weak, knee!! Some days it feels worse than others....but, I do know that ALL my strength comes from God...and as much as He strengthens me thru trials and problems which causes my faith to grow even stronger....He's gonna strengthen my weak knee, too....and my tired hands (I have very weak wrists...but that's a different story for another day!!!!)

I pray that God will keep my hands and wrists and feet and legs....and especially my that I can continue to serve Him!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
