Strengthened by God {Something to Think About}

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. Ephesians 3:16-17 NLT

Empowered through the Holy Spirit.

Trust in the One who will never let us down.

Nurtured by God’s Love.

Strength that comes only from the Lord.

In Christ,

  1. Love the photo. I'm a real tall-tree lover. Empowered through the Holy Spirit... is a wonderful way to live your life, our lives.

  2. Empowerd, Trust, Nurtured and strength, what wonderful promises to anticipate and live by.

  3. Oh, praying right now for total trust to welcome Christ in. Beautiful verse.

  4. My heart feels so strong reading this verse with that photo as an image. Thank you for this. It's one of my very favorite verses - I often use it just before my signature when I send cards or letters. But this image really brings it to life. And I am praying this right back to God for you today. Grace and peace...

    1. Thank you Deidra! Your words bless me!

  5. Tall and strong--nurtured by that sun flare. Stunning image for a stunning verse.

  6. There is so much strength in trees. I love how they tower over me. Makes me think of the biggness of my God! Relying today on His strength!

  7. Hi Laura,
    Trust in the ONE! He is all gracious and so generous to us. All we have to do is ask and He comes in and fills, strengthens and grows us up.


  8. This is one of most favorite prayers in the Bible... The amazing blessing of knowing the depths of His love for us and growing in our trust in the One who is always trustworthy!

  9. What a blessing to wake up and welcome another day! Thank you Heavenly Father!
    Thank you.

  10. Love that image and that scripture! What strength, what awesome encouragement! ;)

  11. Love the picture and verse! I'm currently reading through the Bible looking for prayers people prayed. Such power when we pray His own words!

  12. Great verse...and great photo! We go to a church where the mighty redwood is part of our logo, so this particular post truly speaks to me... Blessings, Joan
