STRENGTH



I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Being strong enough to face any challenge that you are presented with. When things make you fearful, it is strength that helps you race the insurmountable obstacles that appear unsolveable. Alone, we lack the traits that give us strength to face every  obstacle, but through Christ, all things are possible.

In weakness, sickness, need, trials and tribulations, if you just face it by placing Christ between you and the problem, He will give you strength.




Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

I remember the day my Mother transitioned, I was alone in Atlanta and had to get to Fllorida. My body immediately went into shock, but I knew I had to pack, get to the airport, and to the ticket counter. I knew if I could just make it to the Delta Airlines ticket counter, my history in their computer and their great service would get me home.
 
I remember weaving erratically as I drove to the airport, crying and numb. Found a parking space and walked into the airport. When I reached the agent.. all I could say is Momma died, Jacksonville, Florida. Next thing I know, I was in a wheel chair and crying, they got me into seat 2A and I cried all the way to Florida.  I prayed to God for strength to get me safely to the airport, I knew that Delta would take me safely home.

I was fearful, hurt, alone and dazed, but God enabled me to do what needed to be done to get home. I could never have done it by myself.




Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

Shortly before my husband transitioned, his daughter Laveta Browne sued me for custody of her Father in an attempt to take his estate. She tried to sue me for everything I owned which was accumilated before I met her Father, All during our blessed marriage, she was eatranged from her father because he would not send her to graduate school after she had taught school for years in Detroit.

Ernest was frail with early dementia. She coached him and falsely signed documents that worked to her favor. So the judge ordered me to pay her half of my stock and retirement. I said with God as my Father, you had better lock me up now. I will not give that family anything. The judge said you have 90 days from today. Oh the Browne family celebrated in court.

It was my courage and the goodness in my heart that showed me that my husband loved me and though his memory was gone, him and God would work it out. I did not count the day, I knew I worked for a Fortune 500 Corporation for 18 years before I met my husband and I was not sharing any of my stock, retirement of anything.

My dear, loving husband, died on the 89th day.




But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.
