You Can't Do This ...not alone

I don't know about you, but there are days when this reality overwhelms me: I'm not enough. I'm not wise enough, or strong enough, or good enough to handle what's come my way. I get bogged down too easily. I lose my temper. I chose to do something I knew I should not have done. And the things I have to deal with are more than I can handle.


Not at all.

I am so glad Grace posted about how we're not enough on her blog. We're not enough, but God is. His grace is enough! You can't do this--whatever this is for you--alone. But you are not alone.

I needed that reminder this morning. I hope it was encouraging to you as well.

Have a blessed weekend, finding strength in the joy of the Lord!

P.S. I recommend you jump back up to Nehemiah 8:2 and read the context for the passage about joy. This is right after they had finished rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem (7:1)...

    Thanks for sharing! This is just what I needed to read today. We are in the middle of getting ready to move next week, a good reminder that I am not doing it alone. :)

    Thanks for posting this reminder! We're starting our Homeschooling with our 4-year old twins this Fall & I have moments of near panic as I know I'm inadequate for the task. God loves to come through BIG in these ventures. I do love how HE does that, even as I struggle with my inadequacies.
