Little, HARD Things

As I type this I’m sniffling back tears. It’s been a week of “little, but significant” HARD things. Let’s face it. The month has been like that.
By themselves each of these circumstances has its own challenges. Together, I can feel just swept away. I haven’t done the Advent stuff. We haven’t decorated. I am not “ready” for enjoying Christmas .
There have been many nights over the last week where I’ve lain in bed so utterly discouraged, wondering when the tide will carry me back to a happy place.
I know that all of these things are insignificant in the big scope of life. I have my health, my husband, my kids, and my God.
One night as I was having a pity party and crying out to the Lord to just make it all better, the verse came to me in the dark:
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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. — 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 
That phrase, “my grace is sufficient for you,” keeps coming back, a reminder that God has provided all that I need to weather the little, but seemingly hard things.
