I read in a book by David Tripp last night that in Jesus we have all the strength and patience and power we need to get through our struggles and our sin. It's not that when we get into a situation we need to wait for Jesus to recharge us or get our message and send back-up, he's given it to us. It's ready, we just need to accept it.

When I think about my struggles, the common everyday ones, it's not that I find Jesus peace lacking, it's that I accept. I don't go to it for comfort. Instead I sit and wallow in my inadiquicy and the frustration I have in my situation. I prefer my ideas of entitlement to His plan for my life.

I thought about it all day and was even more frustrated at myself thar I still got angry with the dog chewing Ruby's shoe and dinner not going as planned.

Thankfully He forgives me and loves me. I have hope to overcome my struggles because He has overcome the world.
