Day 23 -
Skipped again. I don’t know if I’ve fully decided to quit and just admit defeat. Or if I can say to myself, Molly, you can do this. Just try again.
But I can tell you that I’m reading a new e-book called Hope for the Weary Mom: Where God Meets you in your Mess. The scripture I just read was much needed.
But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Isn’t that perfect for my situation? This is surely a weakness. Feeling like I’m a failure after trying so hard to do this 30-day challenge. But maybe if I boast my weakness, God will show me the power to get through it.
What if this is a God thing? What if my decision to quit is just showing me a weakness. Is He letting me know that I can create power out of this weakness? I would feel better knowing that He is challenging me to finish.
