Last year my word was rest. I needed it, I felt that Lord calling me to slow down. I’m not sure I did a great job with it. I did make more time for rest but somehow ended up still feeling exhausted. Perhaps it’s more of a work in progress kind of thing. . .
I ended last year struggling to not look at the past; to not suffocate in regret. I was dealing with challenges in a relationship with someone very dear to me.
There were times I struggled for breath. Literally, I felt as though I couldn’t breathe. But God. . .
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
He reminded me that His grace is always sufficient. I think I need to cling to that this year. To His Grace which truly is like breath for me.
