When I am weak, then God is strong!

12:41 p.m. Today's project was to get up an hour earlier than usual for devotions and to prepare for Thursday Bible study (5:30 to be exact), so I could get to the chiropractor by 8:30! We switched up our morning routine a bit, and all went well--well "adjusted," you might say!

It had already been a disrupted week, with a memorial service on Monday, and the collison on Tuesday, not to mention the now-daily chiro visits. I'm sure you can identify with my irritation with these unwanted, time-devouring events, even after asking Jesus to be Lord of my life, and telling Him I am willing to have Him work in my life as He chooses to! With a Bible study to write and only yesterday left to complete it, my willingness to let God provide HIS women's lesson was shaky, as was my faith that it would get done! Repenting, I got to writing, and was delighted to find out once again, that my weakness opens the door for His strength!

Our study was different today. We always have good, personal sharing as the gals quote especially meaningful verses and their responses to their lesson, but today the Holy Spirit had them fired up! I was blown away with their insights and personal profession of God's faithfulness! My women--GOD'S women--were preaching it!!

And here I had been wondering, "Did I write enough? Will I be shortchanging the group? Have I put in the time God's word deserves this hectic week?"

The Lord had not only prepared the women's hearts with His Word, they continued to actively participate as I taught our passage, Galatians 5:16-26, contrasting the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit.

God is not going to let His children miss a meal--the good nutrition we glean from His Word!!


  1. Amen! What a blessing! The Lord was speaking the same things to me. In my weaknesses He is my strength! Hallelujah! All we have to be is willing vessels!

    Love ya!
