So, before we get into today’s reading, I wanted to say I wasn’t much of a confident woman last night. I broke down, sobbing hard on my fiance’s shoulder. The wedding planning is getting too much for me, and I am just overwhelmed. Things just cost too much! So I cried my eyes out.
I again do not see today’s reading (1 King’s 1:10-12) having a connection to the point Joyce is saying. She uses Queen Elizabeth I as a character to be inspired by. However, Joyce agrees with what Elizabeth has said in the past, about having the weak and feeble body of a woman. I don’t see being a woman as weak and feeble, even if most of us are as strong as the guys physically. (Though, really, are they going to try giving birth?)
I do like Joyce’s last point when she says, “God will always strengthen those who are willing to look their weaknesses in the face and say, ‘You cannot stop me.'”
We must find strength in our weaknesses, using them to persevere and find our true way.
My weakness right now? Easily breaking down about this wedding crap. How can I fix it? By doing deep breaths when something freaks me out, instead of crying and screaming.
