My grace is sucfficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9
A few months ago I was struggling through a never ending list of things to do because I wasn't feeling well. My head hurt so badly that I could barely see & I felt like I hadn't slept in a month. I just wanted to crawl back into bed until I felt better, but with deadlines looming, it wasn't an option.
Thankfully I wasn't dealing with what Paul was when he wrote this, but my task felt insurmountable nonetheless. In exasperation I asked out loud, " How am I supposed to do this!?" This verse popped into my head, so I wrote it down, taped it on the wall & got stuck in. Before I knew it, my list was done. I'm not saying that everything magically got easy, just that we often fail to see how much we can & should rely on God to do the heavy lifting. It's often when we are at our weakest that we are most aware of God's might.
