Most days I feel inadequate, overburdened, and neck-deep in a to-do list. Most days I go to sleep with a multitude of things churning in my mind that keep me tossing and turning. Most days I remember to complete something too late for it to matter. But, these are the days for which I am thankful.I know that for every time I falter in my confidence, there is a God who is more capable than I am. I know that for every time I am more concerned about my own desires, there is a God who is forgiving. I know that for every time I toss throughout the night, there is a God who provides strength unknown to man.
I have plenty to be thankful for, but through the days where I feel beat down and discouraged, I know that there is a God who will sustain me. And I find that during those days, I learn to rely on that strength more than my own and I also rest better than nights where I am trying to do ministry on my own strength.
May you find the peace, strength, and wisdom that only Jesus can give as we head into this holy season.
