I wrote the following on Friday 1/3/2020
Landon’s been out of school for 15 days today. Three days left until school starts back and I can hardly wait! (Does that make me a terrible Mom? Just being real here!) So far today Landon wet the bed/floor twice, poured a bag of dog food out on the floor, and shattered the blades of an oscillating fan all over his room by putting an unknown object (don’t know what) into the fan while it was on! Not to mention breaking random toys. This was all before noon. I’m thankful to say he didn’t get hurt in all of this. Landon’s guardian angels seriously work overtime to keep that baby safe!
Don’t know if I’ll share…didn’t want to be a complainer…but I would like to encourage someone…you can make it….whatever it is…you can do it…not with your strength, but His. Philippians 4:13
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
I heard this verse just as clearly as anything today in my spirit during praise and worship at church. I wondered if God wanted me to share all of the above then the pastor said the same scripture again in his sermon so it was confirmation to me to share the verse and what I wrote above for someone… His grace is sufficient for you. I don’t know what you’re facing. Maybe it’s something very difficult and you feel like you’re praying and nothing changes. Maybe it’s a circumstance/problem that that you’ve faced for years and never feel like you can get past it. If we could do what He called us to do on our own, why would we need Him? It’s His strength that carries us. His grace is sufficient. Am I saying that everything is going to be easy peasy? Nope. Am I saying that you’ll understand on this side of Heaven? Nope. But what I am saying is that He’s there. He’ll never leave you. He’ll give you what you need at the right moment, just when you need it.
