Are you strong enough?

Are you strong enough? 
It doesn't take much for me to realize I'm not...

This week has been an exhausting one for me starting with me and my hubby being sick, and my getting behind on student teaching.

Since then:
homework
lesson plans
 stress
decisions
lack of sleep
and all the other responsibilities of life have stacked up against me and overwhelmed me.

Last night I was driving to a birthday party, and although normally, I can't get the Christian music station to come through in my car, this time I could faintly hear these words coming through from the Matthew West song Strong Enough.

"I know I'm not strong enough to be 
Everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up
I'm not strong enough.
Hands of mercy won't you cover me
Lord I'm asking you to be
Strong enough
Strong enough"

You can listen to the whole song here:

It was great to be reminded that I need to give up  all my stress and overwhelmed feelings and realize that I serve a powerful God, fully capable of carrying me through my challenging times.

I know we all have our days, weeks, months, or maybe even years where we feel like we can't handle it. 
But the beauty in that is, in our weakest moments, God is still strong.

My prayer for you is that in your weakness, you too will find your strength in Christ.

1 Peter 5:7- Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you!

Phillipians 4:13- I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

Matthew 11:28- Come to me all ye who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.
