It’s Friday, and I’m just thankful to have made it through this week with a smile still on my face (well, mostly, haha). You?
I’m thankful for the Lord’s goodness in giving me the energy I need to get through each day lately. I’ve started asking Him ahead of time when I know our day is going to be particularly long or potentially stressful to give me His strength and peace and patience. He always does. 🙂
But some days I don’t choose the opportunity for demonstrating patience or joy or strength. Some days I fail.
Some days I willingly sin.
I read a meme earlier this week on facebook that said something along the lines of: The mark of Christians is that they keep on fighting against sin. It doesn’t matter how many times they fall as long as they get back up and resume the fight.
How true. We cannot expect perfection on this side of Heaven, but neither should we give up! We choose to persevere, having faith in the results to follow.
This week my friend Dawn shared an excellent post on the mistakes we make. She wrote of how they can lead to shame, but also to redemption. That’s the amazing Grace we experience as children of God!
Friends, this is one of those posts that bring a smile to your face and gratefulness to your heart – and maybe even a loud, “Amen!” to your lips. So be sure to stop by and be encouraged. It’s well worth the time!
As we finish off this week, let’s remember how great a God we serve.
We may feel weak, but He is strong.
We may feel inadequate, but He is sufficient.
We may be weary, but He promises rest.
Let’s do it all for His glory!
P.S. I think I have fixed my Grace and Truth buttons, so if you’ve had issues with them in the past, give them a try today and let me know if they work! Thanks!
