Yesterday, I talked about the challenge of living through the pain of change.

There are some days when living the change seems daunting. Overwhelming.

Like it just.can’

Ever feel that way? Yeah, I thought you did. Me too.

Thankfully — and I do mean thankfully — the Lord makes provision for days like this —

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.

~~ 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)

His divine power. He’s given it to us. And in His power is everything we need.

To live life. That means even a life that includes seasons of change. We have His power to live through it. Not just get through it as though it were some gut wrenching experience (although at times it feels as though it is) but to live, really live through it.

To have joy in the midst of difficulty.

To laugh in spite of hard moments.

To feel centered in the face of unsettledness.

To have meaningful moments with people who are close and dear.

To really live.

I’m so grateful for this power. Grateful that He gives it. Grateful that it’s mine. Grateful that I can have more of it by knowing Him more. Grateful.

What do you need power for these days? Know that you already have it. It’s yours. He’s given it to you.
