Thursday May 30
After realizing daily sin that we generally count as “small” and yet the grievous nature to the heart of our God, this spoke to me from the Valley of Vision this morning. Encouragement and challenge to a daily walking believer:
“…Yet what can thou expect from dust but levity, of corruption but defilement? Keep me ever mindful of my natural state, BUT LET ME NOT FORGET MY HEAVENLY TITLE, OR THE GRACE THAT CAN DEAL WITH EVERY SIN!”
Valley of Vision, Self-Deprecation
And now with that said, I would like to boast in my weakness and announce that today May 30, 2013 was my first EVER official day of softball practice. For those of you who know me well... and i suppose not so well. I have mild albinism and struggle ever so slightly with a visual impairment. You can imagine that this helps my softball abilities incredibly!! (sarcasm inserted here) But after going on a 5 mile in run in the beautiful countryside and feeling quite good about myself, I was enlisted in the female softball league. I told them I could run, train, and work their girls, but please PLEASE do not make me attempt to to catch or hit a ball! He guess what guys? I endured an hour and 30 minutes of this self deprecation and you know what? I threw, caught, hit balls, and even blocked a line drive to prevent my jaw from being broken.
I am just waiting for Sunday morning church! haha
II Corinthians 12:8-10 ..."My grace is sufficient for you, as my power is made perfect in you weakness... for when I am weak, He is made strong."
Here is to an authentic faith walk!
