My Flesh and Heart May Fail…

My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart
    and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:26

Is it really only Monday??? Wow, this has been a long day. It was super crazy at work today because it was the first day of summer classes for TCC (Tidewater Community College). The phone was relentless, ringing off the hook. Sure it made the time go by but unfortunately for me when things get crazy like they did today I tend to get really flustered and feel totally overwhelmed!

I was sooo beyond relieved when 3:30 came around! Sometimes I wonder if I can handle this. Between my physical and mental disabilities I struggle quite a bit. I’m not trying to make excuses. It’s just the way it is! After being denied disability last year I had to face facts: I would have to force myself to go back to work. I knew it would be a struggle but I wasn’t expecting to feel this bad.

In my devotions I’ve been studying the book of Romans. In chapter 8 I came across this verse:

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us

Romans 8:18

I know that in this world we are going to have suffering. Things are going to happen that just don’t make sense. Trials will arise. But as Paul writes, one day we will see glory. Those who have surrendered their lives to God will come face to face with the Lord and it will be paradise! Read what it says in 1 Peter:

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

1 Peter 5:10

Isn’t that amazing?
