It's easy to feel adrift, in need of safety and security.
We crave certainty in an uncertain world.
How do we find it? In an unlikely place.
Stay tuned for my fifth fave, a quote that will, paradoxically, remind you where to find it.
I'm linking up with the ladies of Friday's Fave Five today as we recount the blessings of the week. Won't you give thanks, too?
My favorites this week:
1. The month of May! To quote my Facebook status earlier this week, "Month of May, you are my friend." Not surprisingly, quite a few other teacher friends "liked" that one. Looking forward to slower summer days.
2. A class I'm taking. I'm learning so much. This classes is full of inspiration and truth. I may just take some kind of class all my life... Love to be a student.
3. Conversations with my boys. I just love hearing from them. Of course, it makes me wish we lived closer to one another, but I love to have a chat on the phone with each one. It's great.
4. My students. I'm sure that's a repeat because I say it a lot, but even here in the last weeks of school, I do love these high school kids. They drive me crazy sometimes, but I'm usually smiling as I go over the edge. :0)
5. This quote:
"Security is not to be found in your wisdom and strength, but in the moment by moment grace that meets you in your weakness." (Paul Tripp)
This is so true. I know I strive to be strong, to figure everything out, to be wise...but His strength is make perfect in my weakness. Love the paradoxes of the gospel.
All I have to do to find my strength, my safety, my security, is to yield--and the beauty of it is, the One I'm yielding to considers me precious and loved and valued.
Wishing you grace this week,
