Guest Blogger | Every so often, I receive letters from my brother. Some are just to me and others are to my family as a whole. This week he wrote a bunch of quotes that says “I feel ____ because _____” as part of his therapy. As I read thru, I came across one that stood out to me. It said
“I feel mad because I can’t always be happy”
I realized how true that is. Sometimes I’m so frustrated because I can’t fully be happy. It’s like I want to be happy but I’ve mentally exhausted all my efforts to truly be devoted and it’s just the most confusing feeling. When I read those words, it was almost like I understood that yes, it is frustrating but it’s ok to feel that way. I have to have peace and patience in the Lord and trust that his path is better than mine.
2 Corinthians 12:10
“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.”
