how's it going?
Shawn and I have had a few things in our lives recently in ministry that have made us feel a little overwhelmed. God is teaching us a lot about our strengths and weaknesses, and the fact that even our strengths are not good enough when not used in him - and our our weaknesses are made strong in him! (That was kind of a confusing statement! I hope you got it!) I can't really get into details, but we are learning that we are not meant to save the world -not in and of ourselves. Our battle against pride, wanting to look good and feel needed and praised, and realizing that we have no clue what we are doing in it all is constant! But God is good, and he us reminding me that I need to remain in relationship with him, bask in his love and grace, guard my own heart (something that I have not been great about in this first month of the new schedule!), and proclaim him and him alone. He takes care of all the ins and outs and I can rest in that. I am so thankful for that!
