In a slump
Oh, it's been a long 3 weeks, and I mean L....O....N....G !!!
I've been down with morning sickness for these past 3 weeks, and I'm never down. My only down time has ever been during the kids' nap time, but for the past few weeks the couch and my bed have been my best friends, and at this point I really, really want to end this friendship!
It's hard when you get into a slump, isn't it? Whether it's because you've been sick recently (like me), or you've been overly tired from your daily duties (been there too), whatever the reason we can't allow ourselves to stay in a slump forever!
We need the Lord and His Word to remind us that He is our strength out of our slump:
"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
That the power of Christ may rest upon ME, oh how I need that now. And I know that Christ willingly gives it to me, I just have to accept it. I have to accept His strength, and not think that I can do it on my own, or that it is impossible. I have to trust in His promises. I can't allow the devil to whisper his lies in my ear, remember what 1 John 4:4 says: "greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."
Let's hold on fast to that promise ladies.
When you're in a slump read 2 Corinthians 12:9 and 1 John 4:4 over and over again, and know that Christ is our strength for whatever comes our way.
