I am powerless when my attempts to demonstrate such 'so called' power go unrecognized in situations. In those circumstances, I need to call upon the power of the Holy Spirit to work in my life. But have I. No, more times than I care to remember, I have 'treaded deep waters alone resulting in frustration and discouragement. On these occasions which I may encounter in the future, I need to call upon my Lord for assistance and allow His power to work in His ways. Forgive me, Jesus, for those times that I've forged on in life and not allowed your power to work through me. Thank you for the times when you've given me the ability to 'let go and let God' work in me. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
