I seriously am a terrible blogger. I constantly forget about you guys or get consumed with other things. I so easily discard these lovely blog-land friendships because you're not right here. Pretty much I just suck.
But you know the encouraging part?
Jesus reminds me all the time about just how much I suck. (I know that doesn't sound encouraging but stick with me here...) Like seriously all the time Jesus reminds me how far I am from perfect. I'm far from the perfect blogger. Nowhere near the perfect friend. I continually fail in support raising. I do dumb things in ministry all the time. I'm selfish and proud. I mess up in the same areas of my life over and over and over and over again.
And every time I mess up Jesus is right there with his arm around me saying "You just can't do it, you're not good enough and you never will be"
And then he gently whispers into my ear "But that's okay. I am. I am good enough. I can do it. Please oh please just let me?"
I can't. He can.
"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. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
