The quote from yesterday is one I came across in my Beth Moore study and it really resonated with me. So often I hear people say things like “I’m not good a memorizing” or “I’m not good at sharing my faith” and so on. And I’ll admit that I have been one of them more times than I can count. But it is God alone that makes us competent. He makes us able to handle the things we never could otherwise – certainly not by our own power.
Last week, a friend was telling me of her hectic schedule and she said something to the effect of, “I was thinking about how busy I was and then I thought of YOU. I don’t know how you do it.”
I don’t know either.
Really, I don’t.
But I truly believe that God gives you what you need – whether that be skills or time or words – in his perfect timing. In the last few years as I’ve become increasingly more busy with ministry obligations along with a full-time job and some semblance of a social life, I’ve often simply prayed in times where I felt paralyzed by my to-do lists, “Lord, please just help me to accomplish what YOU want me to accomplish today.” And he has. Sometimes the things I accomplish aren’t what I had planned or necessarily felt I needed to but in the end, it has always worked out just as it should.
