“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” ~ II Corinthians 12:9
Today has been, in a word, uninspiring. I have a child who’s teething at a very high volume (read: lots of tears) and that seems to have acted like the first domino in a long line that has resulted in a very, very long day.
Needless to say, it’s been difficult to think of something to write. Every time I sit down, my mind goes blank and all I want to do is take a nap. So here it is, at the end of our day, and I’m still at a loss for words.
And, like the song says, it’s okay.
It’s okay for me to have an uninspired day. I’m pretty sure even Mary felt at her wit’s end every now and then when Jesus was a teething baby. It’s okay right now for me to simply be grateful that my little boy sleeps like an angel, after all the hollering and fuss today. To appreciate the comfy cushions on my ages-old couch. To have a new book to look forward to reading in bed.
And best of all, a fresh day tomorrow.
So this evening, I will be content with everything just as it is. And I will know, that even when I’m at my most uninspiring, God’s glory is still at its most magnificent.
