Real power isn't always where we think it is.
The card went on to say,
It is not in armies, sports arenas, or the latest high-tech wonder.
Might I also add, it is not in my ability to control my world, my circumstances, my family, and my emotions.
Today I am starting to recognize real power.
Although we hurt, although we are taking one minute at a time, although we have so much more to find out when we see the specialist next week we are discovering power.
Power in reaching out to others.
Power in asking for prayer.
Power in sharing our stories with each other.
Power in friendship.
Power in the body of Christ.
Power in our Great Physician.
Power in letting myself fall in my weakness.
the power of His love
Thank you all so very much for speaking words of truth, support, and love into my life today. Through your hugs, comments, phone messages, tweets, flowers, and conversation in my living room. For those of you I haven't been ready or able to respond to yet today, thank you. I appreciate you all and will continue to rely on each of you in unique ways in the highs and lows of the weeks to come.
With much love,
