He [Jesus] is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. — Colossians 1:17
So, if I’m not in Him, how can I expect all things to hold together?
Folks have said that trusting Jesus is a crutch. So happy to have a crutch that CANNOT fail, break, malfunction, go out of style, be discontinued, become unaffordable… Nope, never.
My Crutch is always there, always relevant and ALWAYS able to sustain me. Especially, on a day like today when I desperately need Him. A day that I cannot put my finger on what ails me, my ‘Crutch’ knows and is working behind the scenes on my behalf.
I wish I could call into existence those things I desperately want for myself and those I love. But the only One who can do that is my God, my crutch. So, today, I will choose to rejoice and hope in spite of how I feel.
By the posting of this short thought, I’ve managed to encourage myself thoroughly!
Thank you, Jesus. You’ve been better to me than I’ve been to myself!
