You don’t. I have quickly come to realize that you can’t do it all. No matter how hard you try. We can’t do it all well. I am sure many of you already know this. I sort of did but now I really know it! So far this week two of us have had the stomach flu and now I am searching for a house cleaner. I just can’t do it all.
When life is manageable, it is easy to forget that when we are weak, HE is strong. I have come to know this truth very intimately this week. God has worked out so many little details to just get us through the week. I have also realized that He is more than strong even when we aren’t at our best. I haven’t had near the time to do my bible study, study word meanings, or extended devotion time (some days, it is daily bible reading on lunch break in the car) But thankfully, I am learning that His strength doesn’t depend on me. I have always known this but usually I am doing all the things that a good, little christian should so I never really put it to the test as I have this week.
But what a relief, sweet relief. I know that my actions don’t change Him. How awesome is that! He is so good to me, even when I am not as good back. I can’t tell you what that does to my heart right now!
