For every single person who asks me every single day how in the world I am going to ‘manage’ my life with my two new daughters…you are so right…I absolutely CANNOT be a good mommy to two children with Down Syndrome. Gosh, and the thought of taking care of Hailee and Harper in addition to my other five…you’re right again. It is absolutely impossible.
I am flawed.
I am weak.
I am frail.
I fail too darn often.
I lose my patience.
I reach the end of my rope.
I wonder how I will ever get through some days, and some situations.
There is absolutely no way I can do this….
But here’s the thing. To everyone who feels the need to ask me how in the world I am going to do this–let me tell you that I can do NOTHING in my own strength. Nothing. From the time my feet hit the ground in the morning, until the time I fall into bed night…I am filled to overflowing with HIS perfect strength.
How am I going to manage? I’m not. Because I no longer live as I used to. It is only through being filled with the Holy Spirit daily, and the absolute surrender of my entire life to God, that I am able to truly say that “I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
It’s just that simple.
HE enables me.
It is with absolute confidence that I can say that my God will not abandon me on the mission He has set before me.
Onward…with all my flaws, my faults, my fears…and MY GOD!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all the very precious birthday messages. They mean the absolute world to me. Thank you for journeying with me, sweet friends.
