His Grace is Sufficient

I opened the bible this morning at work, and fell upon a Psalm that hit me deep. It's kind of depressing and tugs at your heart, but definitely a beautiful cry:

"Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are in agony. My soul is in anguish. How long, O Lord, how long? Turn, O Lord, and deliver me; save me because of Your unfailing love... I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes." Psalm 5:2-4, 6-7

My prayer this week is that I remember to put God before my running injury, that He would be first in my life and everything else would take second. I need to focus on my Savior and all the blessings He has poured upon me, not wallow along in my sadness, wishing my life were different. I am so thankful for all He has given me, all I have experienced on this spiritual journey He is guiding me through, and I know the future is in His hands. I will not worry, I will ice my foot, take a break, and fall in His hands.

and in the mean time... I will eat really incredibly delicious food!

But He [God] 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. 2 Corinthians 12:9
