“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”.
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!
