Manic Monday Devotion

Manic Monday – 3-18-19
Hey there this is Pastor Brad with another Manic Monday. Today I want to remind you that God can handle your meltdown. Last week was a rough week for me. I let circumstances get the best of me and I handled it miserably. I mean at one point I had to get out and push the struggle bus. Yes we as Pastors have bad days too. Yes we can have a meltdown just like you. I’m not proud of the way I handled the situation, but I must move on. It would be easy to lay around in self pity and regret, but I really think that would disappoint God. His grace is sufficient for our every need. “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. God is big enough to handle our meltdowns. You will make mistakes. You will blatantly sin at times. Talk to God, don’t run from Him. Run to Him. Religion would say “My Daddy is gonna wear my tail out.” Grace says “Tell me all about your struggle and give it to me. Daddy will take care of it.” His grace still amazes me after all these years, and I love Him so much more for it.
