Pondering in my Heart Mondays

Heidi is hosting a new link up called "Pondering in my Heart Mondays" over at her blog, Sacramental Moments.  Here's the premise:
Join us as we pause to focus on what is truly important, living our life to achieve the eternal reward.  Let us treasure the words of the Bible and those passed on to us by holy men and women which inspire us along our journey of faith and feed our souls. 

So today I took a much needed jog/walk through the woods near our house and the thing that came to my mind was: Put your strength in the Lord.  Now I know this idea is throughout the Bible, but I cannot find a verse that specifically says it, so I'm not following the rules very well. 

I guess I needed to work on this since I've been feeling overwhelmed by homeschooling, and hosting my in laws last weekend, and my friends this past weekend which always requires super human strength for cleaning, taking care of kids, cooking, and entertaining guests.   It's drained me through and I really needed to remember that my strength doesn't come from within, but from above.   Suddenly everything doesn't look so bad when I can rely on God, my strength.

Now it's your turn to write and link!

Hi Sarah, you've definitely had a busy week and your jog/walk through the woods sounds refreshing. I walk my dog daily as much for me as for him. I need the fresh air and sunshine. Today is a totally beautiful warm and sunny fall day!

I'm not familiar with Heidi's blog and now my curiosity is piqued! I'll head on over to visit.

This is one of my fav quotes, and it related to your situation:
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)
This quote is on my computer, right in front of me all day.
