“How do you do it? Do you do this all by yourself?” asked a friend when I paid a surprise visit to her and her husband today at their assisted living facility with paralyzed doggies Mr. Simeon and Miss Mercy. But little did she know the whole story and just exactly how strong I am – until I told her.

I actually have 18 dogs in my care, but I also take care of every other aspect of the ministry with no volunteer help and oftentimes a shoestring budget. Sharing the Gospel, writing, publishing, administrative, phone calls, e-mails, outreach as the Lord leads, ministering to people, all the dogs, food, water, shelter, vet visits, medications, wheelchairs, lots of walks, diaper changes, cleaning, lawn care for the dog yards, and more.

So how do I do it? I give every single ounce of glory to God, and I do it through Christ who gives me His strength. I accept my weakness as a human being, and I receive God’s strength that is perfected in my weakness. My desire is not that people see me as a strong woman, but that He is glorified in and through me.

How do I do it? In Christ.

“And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NASB

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” Ephesians 6:10 NASB

“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 NASB
