One thing that never ceases to blow my mind is that God is sustainer. But He is not only that; He is our strength when we seem to have absolutely nothing else to give! I have found that, even when I don't even have enough strength left to pull myself out of bed at 6:30 a.m. to set up a field full of recreation equipment, God always seems to jerk me with energy in just enough time for kids to come pouring in a door at stampede-speed just hours later. No matter how many times I complain in my weakness, He still seems to give me strength!
I know I read this in the Bible all the time, but it's so cool to actually "taste and see" the experience of God's strength showing up in the midst of my weakness. 2 Corinthians tells us that God's power is made perfect in our weakness. Isn't that incredible? We can only have a better idea of His almighty strength when we are in desperate need of it!
I am so, so, so excited to see what other exciting things I will learn about God in the coming weeks... it's pretty fun!
