"a new month brings a freshly starched stamina.
but what when one's resolutions are blunted and one's stamina worn thin?
is there not some way out?
the answer is God.
His grace is sufficient to enable the weakest, and His power alone can keep.
those of us who spend much time over the mixing bowl, who tread the daily round, who tuck small fuzzy-tops into bed at the end of a long, weary day - whose patience and grace give out - find a wonderful opportunity to prove for ourselves the truth of our Lord's word: "My grace is sufficient for thee, for my strength is made perfect in weakness." "
(excerpt from Secrets of Wisdom from a Mother's Heart)
yesterday i found myself wandering in weariness, drowning in an overwhelming sense of inadequacy, far from the truth i know. i picked up this book and read these words and was humbly reminded of the endless grace and sufficiency i am given every day. that i need not drown in weariness - that i need not live within the lies of inadequacy. my strength must come from the one who never tires and i have the endless opportunity to embrace the grace that has no end.
