How is my life a whack-a-mole game? Let me count the ways...
I get up to speed on that thing, then feel woefully unqualified for the next assignment in front of me.
I finally resolve one challenge with my kids, and new ones appear out of nowhere.
I overcome one fear, and a new one creeps in.
I think i am doing pretty good as a wife and mother, and the areas i fall short begin shouting at me.
I finally conquer one sin area, and two more new ones are revealed to me.
I finally fold that pile of laundry, and a bigger pile appears.
I feel on top of my spending, and that unexpected expense pops up.
I could go on and on...
Life is full of things that make us feel like we just aren’t enough. Ever.
But the truth is, with God WE ARE ENOUGH. We have EVERYTHING we need for our callings...as single women, as students, as moms, as wives, as employees, as mentors, as friends, as bosses, as life-livers.
What if we shifted our perspective and saw these seemingly debilitating obstacles as opportunities for God to show up and show off? Opportunities for us to admit, “Yes, Lord, I need You. Oh, how I need You.” Opportunities to watch God use our weaknesses to flex His muscles. For where i am weak, there He is strong. There I am strong.
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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
