So This is Me….

So… this is me:

This is me, getting started with supper at 7:30 at night.

This is me, with my daughter beside me working on her math at 7:30 at night.

This is me, bursting out in sobs the minute my nephew and his mom walk in the door this afternoon.

This is me, playing Angry Birds for an hour to delay washing dishes.

This is me, tired… having been awake since four this morning.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

(Ephesians 6:10)

This is me.

I am broken.

I am weary.

I am frustrated.

I am failure.

This is me with the power to press forward.

This is me, laughing when I’d rather weep.

This is me, rejoicing when I’d rather mourn.

This is me, loving when it’d be easier to hate.

This is me, listening to encouragement to go on when I’d rather give up.

This is me.

And I….

…I am weak….

But, especially then, He is strong.
