His Strength for our Weakness

 "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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Let's give our weaknesses to God. Who knows maybe He wants to use them to:

  • humble our hearts and keep us from thinking more of ourselves than we should
  • bring God glory when others see our patient endurance of suffering
  • root out self-sufficiency and cause us to depend on God daily for strength to overcome
  • honor the Lord when we offer God a sacrifice of praise in spite of our handicaps
  • start a ministry that endeavors to ease the suffering of others with the same problem

📌 Quote: "Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God's strength in you." - Joni Eareckson Tada

Wow that is absolutely gorgeous, love flowers, and the pretty paper with flowers and text, great verse and I like the words in your write up, I need to work on being patient in suffering, I don't think I do well in that department.
