One of my favorite combinations of words from Scripture is
After the experience of Monday when I collapsed on His grace, I experienced a fresh "But God..." in my life. He doesn't always reveal His purposes to us, but in this instance He let me catch a glimpse of why my plans had fallen apart and was able to use me to minister to my extended family in unexpected ways. He proved, once again, that His power is perfected in my weakness. I don't become perfect, but He shows Himself perfect.
Anyway, after a 48 hour trip, I am back home and full of thoughts that I'll be posting :-)
