Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough

(Bonus points to the people who can name that great tune).

Ever felt inadequate?  Completely out of your comfort zone?  Ever realize that you've been thrown into a situation that is so not even on your list of abilities?

Then you've come the right place!  Here, we offer all sorts of services that we are incapable of delivering with any amount of regularity or adequacy.

Good news.  His grace is sufficient for you and his power is made perfect through weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).  So when you take on things beyond your ability level (like Women's Prayer Group), know that your God can and will fill the gap...if only you would listen.

But that's another subject for another day.

Or rather, another several thousand posts for several weeks in a row.

Thankfully, you will also be provided with an amazing group of people who will discuss just about any topic with as much vigor and stamina as the U.S. Swim Team (I would've said curling...but I'm pretty sure no one uses the words 'vigor' or 'stamina' in that sport...er...activity).  You'll constantly second guess yourself, but those women will plow through myelin with as much force as they give to the subject of the Proverbs 31 woman.

It will be a humbling experience.

You will learn to lean heavily on God for subject matter (mostly because, on your own, this is going to be a disaster).

Yet, even leaning heavily on God, the sobering reality will be that you're not cut out for this.

But you'll love it.  And you'll stick to it.  And you'll pray that, one of these days, your love for scripture and your love for women will eventually translate to some sort of real knowledge to share with them.

Let's pray that day comes soon.

Smythe, I think. But her singing partner is of equal importance ;)
