This came up in my reading through of II Corinthians. For me it came as timely good counsel.
II Cor. 4: 7,8 and 9
But this precious treasure – this light and power that now shine within us – is held in perishable containers, that is, in our weak bodies. So everyone can see that our glorious power is from God and is not our own. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up and keep going. (NLT)
I guess it was never in God’s intentions for me to be supermom/superwoman. And that is good ’cause I sure am not! I always think the weakness part of my life is so blaringly obvious. I wonder if even my kids will see that if I don’t give up and quit it is largely because of God walking with me through the difficult times.
