i am very tired today. i feel a bit sick and am overwhelmed with the high needs of my daughter and the added stress of a 6 year old with a broken arm and a 21 month old who is cutting new teeth. I am stuggling not to handle the stress of whining and crying and pinching with my own anger. I am also battling sinking the other way, into indifference. But I am confident and hopeful in my God who promises to supply all my needs. He has promised that He has already given me all that i need for righteousness in Christ Jesus.
today I am clinging to Paul’s words in 2 cor. 12: “’My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
