The Last Straw

Have you ever felt like you’re on your last straw? Sometimes we go through challenges, seasons & struggles that are well beyond our natural abilities & wisdom. If you’re like me, I can find myself getting quagmired in these things at the expense of trusting God. There are times when I get stuck in what seems impossible & I can get discouraged. Ever feel this way?
This morning I was having this kind of conversation with God about a few issues & I was reminded of a verse that is really helping me:
2 Corinthians 3:5 Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God.
So lets remember that God is more than adequate for the various “last straws” that may be happening in our lives 🙂

This was a right on time word of encouragement for me, I’m in the last straw mode, but after reading your post and word from God I feel much better.

Perhaps as additional supplement try Jesus Calling – pretty good reading for today which speaks to those circumstances. I really like Psalm 5:11 & 12 in the amplified version -especially the blanket of protection and favor.Smile

Awesome supplemental word.”Psalm 5:11 & 12 the blanket of protection and favor” along with Sarah’s “2 Corinthians 3:5: Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God.”
“So lets remember that God is more than adequate for the various “last straws” that may be happening in our lives” is renewing my mind and strength.
