I'm Too Weak!
The Lord turned to him and said, "Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian's hand. Am I not sending you?"
"But Lord," Gideon asked, "how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family."
The Lord answered, "I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites together." Judges 6:14-16
For years I was extremely active. I worked full-time, wife, mother, and in the ministry alongside my husband. Twelve years ago I no longer was able to work full time, due to my body slowing down because of my chronic illnesses. Five years ago my body came to a screeching halt! Life as I knew it had ceased to exist. I became depressed, having a defeated attitude. I thought my ministry serving the Lord was over because of my chronic illness.
After a year of “lurking” around my sister’s blog, last July the Lord prompted me to start blogging. At first I made excuses and reminded the Lord that I was too weak and no longer as “sharp” minded as I used to be. The Lord had other plans.
