My weakness

<p dir=ltr>There are some days that are so busy, so hot, so stressful that at the end of the day all I want is to take a cold shower and go to sleep. But then we get back to our room and water isnt coming. We wait and wait but no water. And it happens that on this day I had to walk a long distance in the dusty galis so I feel itchy from all the dirt on my feet hands and face. But what to do? I try to make the best of the situation pulling out a cloth and damping it with my drinking water to wipe off some of the dust.<br>
I only want to sleep..but the children are wound up and havent seen me most of the day so they want to play a game before bed….how can I refuse. We play and laugh then its time for bed. After they start to wander off in their dreams I finally get the chance to go to bed. Only my bed is occupied. A new staff member came n I guess we didnt communicate well about where she would stay. So I take one of the bunk beds.<br>
As I start to fall asleep I feel the mosquitos biting my feet and arms. Then the fan stops working. I just want to cry. So I pray. “God I need you now. Im ready to lose it.” Then I opened my bible to 2 corinthians 12:10 “when I am weak then I am strong.”
Many people used to say to me, “You are so strong and brave for what you are doing.” But I always laugh because I know I’m not. I’m very weak and feeble minded. And I am very accustomed to my USA way of life. Small things like electricity outages, water shortages, and other small inconveniences sometimes push me close to the edge. But in this verse I find comfort. In this weakness I can boast because it is in my weaknesses that Christ’s power is made perfect.

One Life to Love envisions a world where every child has a home, a family, and equal opportunity to be and become who they are destined to be.
