30 Days of Thanks: Day 2

Today I give thanks for Scriptures that speak to our specific needs in the moment.  I participate in the monthly Scripture writing plans from Sweet Blessings and The Felicity Bee and I am always amazed when the daily plans line up with what I need to be reminded of that day.  

A recent passage during a very hectic, stressful week:

"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."  2 Corinthians 12:9-10

I'm thankful that even on the hectic days, I can still set aside time to spend in God's Word.  It may be on-the-go, or surrounded by children doing schoolwork; but it's important for me to make that time a priority.  Am I always successful?  No, but I keep trying! 

"For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."  Hebrews 4:12
