What’s Your Weakness?

Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and it is human nature to want to showcase your strengths and hide your weaknesses. However, it is in your weaknesses God can use you the most. Without weakness, God’s supernatural strength can not be exalted.
 
To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 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. II Corinthians 12:7
 
Countless times I have counseled people who were at the end of their rope feeling there was absolutely no resolution for the problems they were faced, only to later hear them report God’s goodness and mercy; singing His praises for the deliverance He provided.
  • Wayward child returned home
  • Financial issues resolved
  • Crumbling marriages restored
  • infirmities healed

If You Want To Impress People Showcase Your Strengths But If You Want To Influence People Share Your Weaknesses.

When you share you weaknesses, God becomes the center of attention and His power is showcased. The focus is removed from you and placed on God’s power. By transferring the focus to God your problem becomes really small and His power becomes very strong.

Thus, your value is not determined by your problem but instead your value is determined by your God.

Ain’t That the Truth!!!

 

 

 

 

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

~  Abraham Lincoln or Rev. William J. H. Boetcker.

Oh What a Day

Wow…what an intense day this has been! It started arriving early to my office in order to meet a reporting submission deadline; Whew made that one!!! Then off to two meetings back to back. Finished up the meetings at noon then flew out the door to attend a funeral. After the funeral headed home changed clothes and it was off for a date night…WooooHoooo the time together we have been waiting for all week!

Last Saturday Richard asked me if I would like to go out for a date on Friday evening. Well, of course I said, “Yes”…time alone with Richard, Duh that’s a no brainer!!! Then the work week began and forgot completely about the conversation and with Richard working nights we had not had a chance to talk. Wednesday I received a call at work and it was Richard. He said, “Hey are we still going out Friday night? I have been looking forward to it all week.”

Oh how that man can brighten my day…Yes, I had forgotten but thought of an evening with him totally elated me!!!

Now it is Friday, at 11:30 pm and I am finally able to write my post. It is still Friday and I got the post in before the end of day! Goal met…

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

Good Night My Precious Friends!!!
