Yesterday, I was still wrapped up in my inability to Leave…Two days of beating myself up. I did my reading, this week on how to pray dangerous prayers but forgot my daily devotional. This book “new morning mercies” was a gift from a dear friend. It has strengthened our friendship and keeps us accountable. I try to leave the book on the coffee table as a reminder but yesterday… it was overlooked. Gosh, what a mistake that was! How amazing is Gods timing! He knew many years ago that I would need this reading on February 10th.
The author, Paul David Tripp, writes about his son being small and searching for his independence and how he had to walk away until his son came and asked for help. This brings me great comfort because two years ago, I had the courage to ask my friend for help. This is very hard for me to do, admit that I am weak and cannot do something on my own. In 1 Corinthians 12:9 “my grace is all you need, my power works best in weakness”. How comforting is that! My heart today is overflowing with gratitude and love. So often I have taken for granted my opportunity my friend has given me here. Getting wrapped up in the moment of chaos and not seeing the big picture. The big picture is the opportunity to rest, to heal, to rediscover myself and get to know God on a deeper level. Simply Profound!
