Putting on My Big Girl Panties

by Jenny Harrison

20130512_01The world says:

Pull yourself up by your bootstraps!

Shake It Off!

Live With It!

It is what it is, deal with it!

Toughen up!

Put on your big girl panties!

But what happens when the elastic in your big girl panties is shot and they fall around your ankles? When your get up and go got up and went? When the to do list outlasts your ability to carry on?

Praise God for his timeless counsel. My Lord and Savior always has the answer.

The Word says…

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me
2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV)

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is merciful. The Lord preserves the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me. Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
Psalms 116:5-7 (ESV)
