I'm Weak

 
Oh how I love "Jesus Calling"
A small, simple devotional that I keep in the bathroom :)
 
"Grow strong in your weakness.  Some of my children I've gifted with abundant strength and stamina.  Others, like you, have received the humble gift of frailty.  Your fragility is not a punishment, nor does it indicate lack of faith.  On the contrary, weak ones like you must live by faith, depending on Me to get you through the day.  I am developing your ability to trust Me, to lean on Me, rather than on your understanding.  Your natural preference is to plan out your day, knowing what will happen when.  My preference is for you to depend on Me continually, trusting Me to guide you and strengthen you as needed.  This is how you grow strong in your weakness."
 
 
God is teaching me so much in my weakness.  I used to be one of the gifted in strength and stamina.  Now I'm humbled with weakness.  It is a sweet, difficult place to be.  It is a gift that God loves me so much that He's taking great care to change my life in a way that will bring Him more glory. 
I need him desperately. 
I am weak.
I am letting go of those daily plans and my desire to control everything.
The babysitter painted the children's nails... all the children!
These are my son's nails!
I'm letting go.
