He Is my All Sufficiency

Sitting at my laptop with barely enough energy to type (from low blood sugar), I feel quite useless as the rest of the family buzzes around getting things done. Our youngest doll – Carolyn – piggy tails and all, was first doing a puzzle and chattering away, but now is helping Abigail and Melissa with the laundry, folding tea towels and such; Cynthia and Sarah took over from me making lunch; and Brianna is practicing guitar. It just seems the norm lately: doing a few hours work then having no energy for the rest of the day. It has been very frustrating. We start the school year on Monday; I resume sewing for customers the following week, and I honestly have no idea how I am going to get everything done like I did before.

Still, in the midst of all this frustration and seemingly impossible schedule, I have a peace knowing that my Saviour is my all sufficiency. He will get me through, as long as I remember to lean on Him. I know I cannot do all that needs done without Him, and it may mean re-organizing our squedule and/or eliminating some things, but I also know He is always faithful to help me.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matthew 6:34 

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; 2 Corinthians 3:5 

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

    Oh how I can truly say I have been where you are! You wonder where the energy will come from. However, praise the Lord for His unending grace for each day!!

    These two verses TOTALLY bless me and keep me going when I begin to think that I am “spent”!

    ~Lamentations 3:22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

    ~Lamentations 3:23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

    I know exactly what you are talking about! I have been there and know that He gives grace when we need it! I can’t imagine going through life without Him!

  • Hi Angela,
    I have no idea how I stumbled onto your blog, but I’m glad I did. Looks like I have some back reading to do.
    Hope you and your family are doing well.

    Happy Lord’s Day!
