Maybe it's my age... maybe it's the few zillion power surges I get at times... maybe I just can't shut off my poor little brain like a hamster running on a wheel full tilt boogie... but last night was another sleepless night. It started out such a perfect a night too. The weather has finally warmed and the attic fan was on lulling me to dreamland... but sleep wouldn't come.
As I sit with my coffee i.v. this morning, I was reading my daily devotional book: Jesus Calling.
Well it smacked me right between the eyes and I just had to share....
"When some basic need is lacking - time, energy, money - consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence. When you begin your day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment. This is where you are meant to live - in the present; it is the place where I always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me.
The truth is that self-sufficiency is a myth perpetuated by pride and temporary success. Health and wealth can disappear instantly, as can life itself. Rejoice in your insufficiency, knowing that My Power Is Made Perfect In Weakness."
