Strength made perfect in weakness

God says in His word that His strength is made perfect in in weakness.  He also says that His grace is sufficient for us.  Oh do I need to experience the truth of this scripture today.  It is hard to be weak.  It is hard to feel like you have nothing to give.  My daughter asked me to play a pizza game with her yesterday around 3pm and I knew it was my last ounce of energy.  I told her that.  I wanted to hold on to at least a little bit of energy.  I didn't want to give out my last little bit, but I know that it's God's will that I give what He has given to me.  So I gave my last ounce of energy by going up to the "play room" and playing with the kids.  But there was still the couple hours I get at night after the kids go to bed to get mental break.  Well lost that yesterday night to because Carson decided he did not want to go to sleep in his crib and wanted to be downstairs with me.  So today I am really clinging to this scripture, because when I don't get a mental break it really makes it hard to be loving to my children and it makes it hard to serve.  I don't feel like myself and all I want to do is escape for a little while.  I pray that as today is starting with a bit of a test, that it will end in a testimony of what God has done.  Here I am God your weak vessel, make a testimony of Your strength in my life today. Something that I can share about this scripture, help me to understand what this truth looks like in my life.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen
