I'm STILL moving...

Imagine my surprise when I opened up my Kindle to today's entry in My Utmost for His Highest and found this:

If Jesus ever commanded us to do something that He was unable to equip us to accomplish, He would be a liar. And if we make our own inability a stumbling block or an excuse not to be obedient, it means that we are telling God that there is something which He has not yet taken into account. Every element of our own self-reliance must be put to death by the power of God. The moment we recognize our complete weakness and our dependence upon Him will be the very moment that the Spirit of God will exhibit His power. (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, May 5)

I was thinking more on yesterday's post and I came to the conclusion that the main work going on in my heart right now is really humility. Yes, I am experiencing complete and utter reliance on the Lord but that is only because I was brought to my knees before Him first. It is so very humbling to be brought to that place where everything I think I can DO is really meaningless. Instead it is really coming to that place where I know that everything is BEING DONE in me by the work of the Holy Spirit.

So, today I will pump (a million times) and I will change her dressing and I will calculate tube feedings and I will try to bottle feed and I will make phone calls and I will read and sing and rock and revel in the joy of living through Him instead of through myself.
