I am weak He is strong

“You must be soooo tired!”

“I bet you are exhausted.”

“Did you sleep any last night?”

People said all of these things to me this morning.  I got to thinking, ‘Did I forget to wear mascara again?’.  I went to the bathroom and checked.  Nope.  I guess it’s because we are smack dab in the middle of VBS.

Yes, I am tired, exhausted even, and no I didn’t sleep much but it’s because I’m extremely excited to be a part of what the Lord is doing at Gateway. What a privilege to have a front row seat to the grace He is pouring out. Really, I’m just being obedient to what He’s called me to do.  He has given me abundantly more than I can ask or imagine.  His grace is more than sufficient, it is extravagant.  I am energized. That’s what happens when I “serve with gladness”. Unknown

I have many limitations when it comes to serving, but God’s power is perfected in my weakness. When I am tired, He gives energy.  When I’m weak, He’s strong.  I get frustrated and He is my perfect peace.  I need answers, He gives wisdom. All of this happens in His power. To Him be the glory!
