So this year I decided to invest in a weighted blanked. I am sure you have all heard something about these blankets through all the media hype over the holidays. I don’t believe there was a store that wasn’t carrying them in various sizes and colors boasting of its ability to ease stress and anxiety and promote restful sleep.
So I brought it home and to my surprise the weight of the blanket felt like a giant hug and seemed to make the proverbial weight of the world melt away. I never wanted to leave from beneath my new glorious covering.
In Corinthians 12:9 the bible talks about this when it speaks about boasting about our weaknesses and how when we are weak CHRIST is strong.
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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
There are days when I find it difficult to even get out of bed. The weight of the world seems like it smothering me. It is in those times that when I admit my lack of strength that his power can envelope me like a weighted blanket and melt away my self doubt and worry and replace it with his strength and peace. He reaches down and wraps us in his love and there is no place I feel safer. Xoxo Renee
