Word of the Day... January 31, 2013

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Sometimes when we see the word inadequate, it reminds us of all of the things that we don’t do well.  Where we all fall short at something and where we feel fear.  All of us experience this feeling at one time or another.  I am just not good enough.

 All of us have heard people say: I am afraid to get up in front of the class and do my report.  I will make a mistake and they will laugh at me. Or why can’t I be as good of a mother as she is, she makes it look so easy. I can’t stop smoking I am just not strong enough, I can’t take care of my aging parents I am not good at that, or I just can’t go on living when every single dream I have ever had has never come true.  I am such a failure at everything I do.

I don’t care who you are or where you come from every single one of us have felt this at one time or another in our lives.  Let’s face it we are human and sometimes we are going to feel like a failure. Simply inadequate.

If you have retreated to the back alley of life and are wallowing in your inadequacies, just look up.  You are exactly where you need to be for the Lord to begin His work in you.  When you are weak is when He is very strong and He wants to love you and care for you all of the days of your life.  Don’t waste another minute running from Him.  Run to Him and receive His power.  He makes all things new!

I hope all of you take the time today to spend some time with Jesus.  Even if it is just to say His name when you feel scared or worried. It helps me so much when I am worried or afraid just to say… Jesus…  There is just something about that name.  I hope that all of you have a Simply Heavenly Thursday!!!  God bless you!!!
