Today, I was a little discouraged, well I have been off and on over the last couple of days. This is why you have not heard a peep from me. I wish I could say that I am a perfect specimen of woman, wife, mom, sister, friend, believer, but I am not. I fall WAY short in this department. Well, not always, KIDDING!!! I am going through a little season where I need God to show up in a major way and waiting is not always easy for me. I hit a wall today and really felt lost and down for the count. Our youngest daughter was home today from school and I was so busy nursing her that I could not wallow in my on pitiful puddle of pride. I had to push my "stuff" to the background and care and pray for my child. Well, of course my mind and body were so busy with that, until I forgot all about my "stuff". I read and reflected about the Apostle Paul this morning. What he endured makes any "bad" day that I may have seem like a cake walk.
But he said to me,"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Well guess what happened? God answered a prayer that I prayed just this morning after I read the scripture above!!!!
God is such a great daddy. He has so much and so many to care for and yet, he heard my little cry this morning and answered my prayer this evening!!
