The play "As You Like It" has a famous line that says, all the world is a stage. Some times that is just how I feel and to be honest on those days I am gripped with "stage fright." The thought of facing the world's stage without my husband is a very scary thought. I want to say, God I can't go out there alone but then He reminds me, I'll never be alone. He will always be near. I want to say, God I'm afraid but He reminds me that He did not give me a spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind and if fear is not from Him I don't want it. I want to say, God I can't do this but He reminds me I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. My husband used to say, Sherry, you can do anything you put your mind to. Surely he didn't mean THIS... but surely he did.
Philippians 4:13 - I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
