I was feeling a little frustrated with myself tonight. I was still thinking about parenting mistakes that I made today, and vowing to be a better mom tomorrow. I really didn't have patience for rocking Lexi tonight. I didn't read Kailey stories. I did the essentials, and headed for bed. I grabbed my new computer here (great because my other laptop is only usable with a cord attached, defeating the purpose of the portability of a laptop). Logged in to my 'igoogle.com' page, and saw my verse for the day.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 "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."
WOW! While the entire verse is exactly what I needed, I found myself drawn to "I delight in weaknesses." I certainly showed my weaknesses tonight. I did the opposite of delight in them, and I even saw the weakness coming! What would happen if I delighted in my weakness? Merriam-Webster (m-w.com) gave this for their first definition of "delight" (noun) a high degree of gratification : joy ; also : extreme satisfaction. How my weakness, and my attitude that is present with my weakness, would change if their was joy in my voice! I'll have to try that tomorrow.
