Just Hanging On…

“For I do not understand my own actions.
For I do not do what I want, but
I do the very thing that I hate.”
ROMANS 7:15 ESV

Where did I leave my “peaceful happiness”? I thought I had it here somewhere! Instead of overflowing joy I’m slogging through a mire of “gimme more” and “but I deserve“…the stress is pulling at me and dragging me down. Hmmm, this girl needs a pick-me-up! How about some cute pink nail polish? Well, after a little pampering, my toes look cute and happy, but I still feel the same. No, what I need is a breath of fresh air. So, I open my Bible and read…’whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies’ (1 Peter 4:11). Yes, this is what I need. I may be tired and overwhelmed (and selfish), but God’s grace can lead me through each minute of my day. He is strong enough for today. His grace is enough.
