as much as i would love to have a struggle-free life, i know better. i know i would quickly step into self-sufficiency and never look back. struggling and clamoring my way through each day and week is by no means pleasant, but i see the purpose. i have to.
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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
so while i wrestle through a rough season with no end in sight, i'm reminded that this is just another part of the story He is writing and weaving that will ultimately result in His glory. i will not lose heart.
...for the joy of the Lord is my strength.
