SWEET IS THE WORD! JACOB 4:7 - THE STRUGGLE IS REAL (IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE!)

Sunday, June 17, 2018
Pic via: my kitchen counter, the remnants of our Father's Day card craft session included. I stood here for a few minutes this morning and slipped in a short study -- I could feel it in my bones this AM that my day was going to be gogogo, so squeezing in something right away would be better than nothing (or something even shorter and less sincere at the end of my day. I'm not a very good bedtime studier)!
Entry from Friday, June 15
Jacob 4:7
"Nevertheless, the Lord God showeth us our weakness, that we may know that it is by his grace...that we have power to do these things."

This is why parenting is so hard (I had mothering on the brain, of course, but any life struggle applies) -- so that I can see His power miraculously take my weaknesses and turn them into strengths. Sometimes I feel totally unable to change things about my nature that I need to change for my babies' sakes, but this reminds me that that's okay. It's alright to have a struggle, a weakness, a bad habit, all of it -- He needs a chance to help me. The struggle is real. It is supposed to be!
