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.
One thought on “”
Nothing comes to us that we can't handle. Well done to you for doing it all.
