We are on chapter 9 of He Speaks to Me. Priscilla has some really great thoughts in this chapter.
“Isn’t our God amazing? He knows that we are weak in ourselves, so He supplies us with all the power we need. He gives the power supplied by the Spirit, the energy to get up and use that power, and the power to overcome the resistance we will face when we do. With all that power at our disposal, we don’t have any excuse for not putting on righteousness.”
Today, I was feeling weak. Weak in overcoming the mounting amount of impatience I experience with my sweet, ever changing 6th grade princess. As with our other two, sixth grade poses certain challenges that seem to only lend themselves to this very difficult year of transition. The Lord challenged me today to stop calling it frustration, tiredness, a season in my life and call it what it is: sin. The sin of impatience in my life is nothing short of love for 1 Corinthians 13 tells us that love is patient. So, I humbly call it what He calls us. Now, I need to get on with getting plugged in to all that Power Priscilla talked about.
