So, the awesome Lisa Jo Baker does this 5 Minute Friday post, where she gives us one word to write about for 5 whole minutes. Yes, only 5. Trust me, when you get going, it's hard to stop once the timer goes off!
Go ahead, go get your timer, cause here we go...
Today's word: GRACE
It's sufficient for me. Sometimes, though, I forget. Or is it just me get trying to operate in my own power. He said that His power is made perfect in weakness.
I get tired though.
Day in, day out. Hurdles to jump, walls to knock down. I am only so strong.
In my own power, that is.
He reminds me though. I thank Him for those reminders.
I am stubborn and a recovering control freak. I like things done my way, in my own timing.
But He nudges me. Sometimes, I feel Him nudge me hard. I know I can hear him, as if someone, flesh and bone, is physically in the room with me.
I still get tired though. Sometimes it's just too much.
That is, until He nudges me. Until He reminds me about His grace.
I gotta stop trying to do this stuff in my own power. The grace is there and it's up to me to accept it.
