Let Me Get Something Straight

I recently had a conversation with someone that had me thinking, “oh my goodness, I really hope people don’t think I have it all together!”

This was me 14 years ago.  I just opened my business and the newspaper came out to do an article on me.  The other night we had dinner at my parents and my kids found this article and came running saying “who is that?”

This girl had no idea what God was going to do with her little life.  I’m just a girl with crazy struggles, insecurities, and fear that allowed God to take over.  I’m just a girl that realized I am nothing in my own strength!

If I’ve ever made it look like I have it all together, I want to be sure that everyone knows….it’s only God!! I don’t even know what I’m doing tomorrow because God says, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” It’s minute by minute for me.

Sometimes I bust out awesome healthy food

Like my roasted veggies, zucchini noodles, with poached eggs on top!

Other days I want cake……

I’ve prayed for food not to be my temptation, I’ve prayed for God to just take it away.  It’s my one strong prayer that He hasn’t answered the way I would like 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.”

This is me…..I am so weak especially in the area of food and it is the one thing I can NOT conquer in my own strength!!! I can’t wait to see Jesus in heaven with a banquet feast set up just for me….haha!!!

I’m in the middle of a bible study called (un)qualified and it’s talking about how God can use our greatest weakness for His glory!! Interesting…..what is your greatest weakness?
