The other night, my husband took the older boys to karate and I stayed home with our toddler to get a head start on dinner so it would be hot and ready when they returned. This is our normal procedure and works beautifully normally.
I proceeded into my litany of mumbling self pity/prayer….”why…..why….whhhyyyy!!! I never ask for anything for myself. All I want to do is write a few paragraphs that might help someone else! Why is it so hard? ” and I allowed myself to come completely unglued, a luxury I rarely afford myself.And softly as always, God’s patient wisdom answered me in silence. The way only He can hold a mirror to my face so that I can reveal the answer to my own questions. “Yes,” He said. “Why, why, why. So that you would come to Me. You can not do this on your own.” I knew this to be true, and my sniveling was quieted. Only You can bless and multiply my efforts, my sweet Lord. Please forgive me for my foolishness and pride. I know I can do nothing good without You.I surrender to Your perfect wisdom. Let my words be Yours, and in Your time.
And thank goodness for miniature fall gourds.
