HE not ME

   I am struggling right now. I mean, for real. I am feeling the weight of others' burdens and I desire so badly to fix all of them. I have been asking the Lord to make me more compassionate and aware of others' needs. Can I just say that He answered and DUMPED opportunities for me to practice this. I seem to be failing more than I am succeeding. There is one situation currently that I am begging the Lord to show favor in. I need Him to come through for them, I need Him to come through for me.    
      Honestly, I am realizing that I am trying to rely on myself. I think I can handle this and the truth is I cannot. I wish I could waive my magic wand and heal all the hurt. I think this is one way that God is continuing to remind me and say, " Hey don't settle for this earth, don't get too comfortable, this is just a mist in the scheme of eternity, baby girl this ain't your final home, & I've got this". Not Marci- God. I'm pretty much ready for a new object lesson, but I must be a very slow learner.   
     A verse in the Bible that I have been working through is 2 Corinthians 4 :8-9, " We are pressured in every way, BUT not crushed; we are perplexed BUT not in despair, we are persecuted BUT not abandoned we are struck down BUT not destroyed". The other verse is 1 Thessalonians 5:24, " He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it".  HE not ME. Sometimes it seems that the Lord brings us right to what we feel is our edge, just to sweetly swoop in and engulf us in His mighty power. I really am thankful  that He is teaching me to be more like him. I am loving walking with other women and their families through trying times. I am loving how the Lord is stretching me in new ways, even if it hurts for the moment. He's good and faithful you all, for real.

Just look how creative God is!!
