- Exercise (makes me feel and think so much better)
- Finishing school
- Eating well
Such relief! I still have my project lists. Those desired accomplishments and goals are listed in my little planner but on those days when life gets crazy, for what ever reason, I go to my main things. It is amazing how a little planning and fore thought make such a difference.
The Lord opened my eyes to see that my misery comes from an excessive focus on my own lack instead of the rightful focus on his abundance. At it's core, this is not trusting in his perfect accomplishment on the cross. To reject my being weak is a rejection of the gospel. I see his strength clearly when I embrace and rejoice in my own lack and inability. So I have been giving thanks that I can't and it has fed my soul.
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. For when I am weak then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 8-10
