Giving It To God

How grateful I am and how I praise the Lord that you are helping me again. I know you have always been anxious to send what you could, but for a while you didn't have the chance. Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to get along happily whether I have much or little. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of contentment in every situation, whether it be a full stomach or hunger, plenty or want; for I can do everything God asks me to with the help of Christ who gives me strength and power. Philippians 4:10-13 (TLB)

After Courtney Canion, from Texas, learned that she had torn her other ACL, her spirits sank. She had just recovered from the same injury to her other knee eight months prior, and now she was going to have to go through the same grueling journey all over again. Surgery, crutches, ice, and physical therapy would be her main focus for the next two weeks. Courtney felt as if she would never understand where God was in all this or how God could possibly use this injury for her good.

It was around this time that Courtney came across Philippians 4. She was familiar with this passage of scripture, but she had never spent much time studying and meditating on it. After reading it, Courtney decided that although she did not understand why she was going through this trial, she knew that turning to God would be the only way she could get through it. Courtney took a leap of faith and decided to trust God. Now she has found joy and a peace that she did not have when she was healing from her first knee injury. Giving this struggle to God is something she has to do every day, and doing so helps her remember that she is not going through this hardship alone.

Prayer: Dear God, help us give our struggles to you daily, and remind us that the trials that we go through will strengthen our faith and trust in you; in Jesus' name. Amen.
