I don't know about you, but there are days when this reality overwhelms me: I'm not enough. I'm not wise enough, or strong enough, or good enough to handle what's come my way. I get bogged down too easily. I lose my temper. I chose to do something I knew I should not have done. And the things I have to deal with are more than I can handle.
Not at all.
I am so glad Grace posted about how we're not enough on her blog. We're not enough, but God is. His grace is enough! You can't do this--whatever this is for you--alone. But you are not alone.
I needed that reminder this morning. I hope it was encouraging to you as well.
Have a blessed weekend, finding strength in the joy of the Lord!

P.S. I recommend you jump back up to Nehemiah 8:2 and read the context for the passage about joy. This is right after they had finished rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem (7:1)...
