Need Encouragement?

I sure do.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.


2 Corinthians 4:7-9

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed


Dueteronomy 31:8

8 And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”


1 John 4:4

4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

I'm tired.

It's difficult parenting so many.

Oh Janet,
I am sorry to hear you are having such a hard time. You are looking in the right place for encouragement and peace of mind.

I will pray.

I'm also praying for you Janet...parenting is a *huge* job. One of so many blessings and yet so many trials as well.

I loved reading through the scriptures you shared though. I think you were an encouragement to the rest of us!

Awww Janet, this is EXACTLY what I need right now.
Such an incredible God we have- who led you to share verses on Thursday that I would need desperately at 2:48 A.M. Sunday.
Thank you- and I hope the rest of the week was more encouraging for you.
Our blessings can be stressful, can't they?
