I'm Weak. He's Strong.

I don't really have anything much to say except that Josh is gone until Thursday evening and that makes for a L-O-N-G week.

This morning I got up very aware that in every way that I can think of, I am weak right now. I'm weak in the "rested" department. I'm weak in the "refreshed" department. I'm weak in the "patience" department and in the "eyes on the cross" department and in the "joyfully serving" department. I don't feel like I've been doing anything very well or very strongly right now. Weak at housework, weak in organization, weak at friendship, weak at devotions, weak in parenting, weak in trusting the Lord. I am weak. And actually, I'm probably always this weak, I just don't always recognize it.

So my cry today has been, "When I am weak, then I am Lord, please be my strength in weakness!" And you know what? He gave me more than sufficient grace and strength for the day. Now all three little people are in bed (for the moment) and I'm grateful that God is so much stronger than my weakness. I'm praying that I remember His strength tomorrow too.

  1. Ahh. And I can yet have days like that...all kids grown up and gone...but it is still evident I can be very weak...weak in motivation...weak in joy....weak in praise...weak in godliness in my thinking. It can go on and on. I'm with you. Thank God, he picks us up when we call and we can have a better day.

  2. I was thinking about your husband being gone this week and praying for you today!

  3. Husbands being gone must be a common theme these days...Spencer is working in Hawaii for 2 weeks and this is only the 2 day. I COMPLETELY and TOTALLY understand your post and am encouraged by it!

    Love you, friend!
