2 Corinthians 12:9 CSBBut He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.

I’m going to be completely honest. I’m tired. Most of my energy is gone by the time I get home from work, but that’s the time that my family needs me the most. Coming up with the energy to be a good husband and dad is really tough, especially with our youngest not giving us enough sleep at night. Add to that the fact that I’ve been sick for nearly two weeks and we have a busy weekend ahead of us. I’m just… tired. Each morning, if I don’t pray for anything else, I ask “Father, please give me the strength to keep my eyes on you and get through this day.” The result is like when we tithe, and the numbers just work themselves out, even if we can’t make sense of them. Somehow, I get through the day. Somehow, I keep putting one foot in front of the other and continue to march forward. God’s provision is like that. Somehow, he gives you just enough to meet your need for that day. The economy of God doesn’t care about pesky little things like numbers and measurements; it cares about your heart and your soul and your relationship with the Father. So on this day, I hope you pray that God gives you what you need for the day, no more, no less, because my experience has shown that he’ll never not answer that prayer.
