Gitz was a consistent help to me during some very difficult days in my life (Sept ’08 – Nov ’09). Her comments spoke truth, but most especially, her posts taught me how to praise through suffering. She reached out and spoke beautiful, uplifting, encouraging words to me. I am so thankful she will be able to see The Love of Her Life soon…

When I’m Weak
Original post published January 9, 2009:
It’s an overcast morning. I must get to the doctor today. I was out all day yesterday helping a wonderful friend. But as is usual for me, too much activity one day causes much fatigue the next. I would like to stay in the comfort of my home, but…
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Somedays it feels impossible to move. Somedays I’m not sure how I’ll get through. Somedays I need my pillow and blanket to feel the warmth, to bring comfort to my stiff, aching body.
Today is someday.
I’m asking for His strength. When I am weak, He has promised to be strong.
“My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me.
~2 Corinthians 12:9
Heavenly Father, help me get up. I need Your help to move. You have been my source of strength for many years. I know You are the One who gives me breath. You sustain me. I need more of Your sustenance today. I will boast in my weakness for I know it is Your power that gives me strength. Thank you, Father.
