Well I certainly don’t mean to guest post you to death.  Is that even possible? I sure hope not.

I am over here this morning talking about all the waiting and the worrying.

Worry is believing God won’t get it right.

These words from my pastor held such conviction for me. They were like a very kindly delivered kick in the teeth. If such a thing exists.

I was thankful for the opportunity to read his words again this morning and I hope you are encouraged by them!

Please come back and tell me what you’ve worried God won’t get right.

For me, I’m wrestling with finding the time to do all the important things on my daily “to-do” list. I’ve pared it down to only the super important and I STILL have more to do than hours in the day.  

I worry that I am going to labor with my whole heart.  And still fail.

2 Corinthians 12 tells a different story.

“My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in weakness.”  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.  That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.  For when I am weak, then I am strong.

sevenly syria printThis week over at Sevenly they are supporting Save the Children which is an organization helps children recover from the effects of war, conflict and natural disasters.

Their focus this week is the sweet children in Syria.

This print on one of the shirts just broke my heart. Pictures of mom’s fleeing with their children tend to hit close to home. Please join me in prayer for these dear people and share this if you feel led.

I pray that today we will delight in our weaknesses for the sake of the strength they display in our Lord.  And that, in light of the reality of moms running their babies to safety in war-torn countries, our worries would be seen in the proper perspective.

My burgeoning to-do list may not be that big of a deal after all.
