Inadequate

I look around and see laundry piled up and toys scattered around. Inadequate.

I try to fit errands and homeschooling and naps into the same day and still try to make supper before it's bedtime. Inadequate.

I seek to satisfy all four people who want something from me at the same time. Inadequate.

I search for words of wisdom for a friend in crisis, but I haven't been drinking from the Source of wisdom. Inadequate.

I am so grateful that He is more than adequate. That He pours out His grace and mercy on my undeserving self and lets me see how inadequate I am.

How without Him I am nothing.

Alicia,
I, too, am so grateful that is He strong in my many weaknesses! Thanks for sharing.

Isn't that the truth. Some days I feel so dried up and it is only by soaking HIM up that I have anything to give in this life. Good post!

Thank you for the reminder that we need to rely on Him for our strength.
