I woke up really depressed this morning…about lots of silly little things. I couldn’t get my shift switched or covered. My schedule was awful this week and I made hardly any money. And now, after tonight, I have four days off around my birthday and not enough money to even do anything. Stuff needs to get done around the apartment…bills need to get paid that I have been putting off for a looong time….I need to change my name, tidy up my resume, apply for jobs…there…‘s just not enough time for it all…heck I am even thinking about how I barely have time to write this.
Then I turned to April 30th in my devotional – Jesus Calling. It was perfect. The absolute perfect reminder I needed today.
‘When some basic need is lacking – time, energy, money – consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence…..Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me.”
And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
– 2 Corinthians 12:9
