When I started writing this series on “The Secret Life of Christian Women,” I promised to always be honest so here goes:
- 1. Did I marry the wrong man?
- 2. Am I not made to be a wife and mom?
- 3. Where did I go wrong?
Daily, tears fill my eyes as I try to answer these questions and for a while I felt like God never gave me an answer, until today!
This morning I went for my daily run and accidentally hit shuffle on my phone (well, it wasn’t an accident in God’s eyes). Steven Curtis Chapman’s song, “his strength is perfect,” began to play and for the first time in a long time I heard God’s voice in that song taken from 2 Corinthians 12:9.
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength but sometimes I wonder what he can do through me, no great success to show, no glory on my own, yet in my weakness he is there to let me know…..His strength is perfect, when our strength is gone. He’ll carry us, when we can’t carry on, raise in his power the weak becomes strong, his strength is perfect, his strength is perfect.”
The words of that song reminded me that I don’t have to try to do it all on my own and be a super wife or mom. It is time for me to get realign with God and understand “His Strength” not my own is perfect.
Please listen to this great song and share what you do when these feelings come over you.
