SWEET IS THE WORD! MOSIAH 23:2 - THE LORD INCREASES CAPACITIES VERSUS REMOVING STRUGGLES

Sunday, May 7, 2017
Pic via: the living room floor (again ๐Ÿ˜Š). I read and pondered there while nursing Emmy during her little morning meal (hence the baby thighs!!!)
Entry from Sunday, April 30
"And the Lord did strengthen them, that the people of King Noah could not overtake them to destroy them."

The Lord didn't make the enemy stop. He didn't send down a storm that stalled or wipe them out. The problem remained - the Lord just gave Alma's people more strength to bear with the situation until it could be done. He operates that way so often, doesn't He? The existence and/or nature of a trial doesn't often change in answer to my prayers for help, but my capacities to handle the situation does. God lives to make me better and stronger. How could He do so if He took the trials entirely away right when I ask Him to?

Grateful for this reminder. Emmy's demanding needs and struggles as a little newborn might not entirely go away for a few more months (although she is making the sweetest, most relieving progress!), but my weaknesses will: the Lord is and will keep making me stronger.
