Then there is school---so much more paper work and grading. It is threatening to overwhelm me and my mind toys with disability in my future.
And that is depressing.
I skimmed through 100 Days of Grace for Women for the devotional and came upon one titled "My Grace is sufficient." Oh, what an answer! I wrote my thoughts out and then my 'gratefuls' as I call them (patterned after Ann Voskamp's one thousand gifts.
I have a day long meeting and still need to do lesson plans.
But---on to what I've learned from Scruffy. She is George's sister and is featured in these pictures.
1. Go for the familiar ---something that has the scent of a loved one on it.
2. No space is too small. Scootch inbetween the spaces and relax.
3. Cover your eyes and blot out the world for awhile.
4. Abandon your worries for awhile and let sleep do its job.
6. Find the good in a small home. It insulates you, surrounds you, and protects you.
7. Dirty dishrags smell good. For her---who knows what she finds appealing as she rolls in them.
For me, they mean I was able to accomplish simple tasks despite the fibromyalgia.
Chalk one up for me and God and 0 for fibromyalgia.
"God is always sufficient in perfect proportion to our need."
"Snuggle in God's arms.
When you are hurting, when you feel lonely or left out,
let Him cradle you, comfort you, reassure you of His all-sufficient power and love."
"Like Paul, we may bear thorns so that we can discover God's perfect sufficiency."
"And God is able to make all grace abound to you,
so that always having all sufficiency in everything,
you may have an abundance for every good deed."
2 Corinthians 9:8 NASB
Today's Prayer of Grace
You are sufficient for my needs,
and I praise You.
I will turn to You when I am fearful or worried.
You are my loving Heavenly Father,
sufficient in all things and I will always trust You.
Blessings to you all as you begin the new week!♥
