How Do You Put on Strength When You Feel So Weak?

It doesn’t take long to find out your weaknesses does it?

As kids we figure it out pretty quick.  Parents and teachers give out participation trophies yet we all know don’t we?

Maybe, like me, you were the last picked for baseball games.  And the team captains kept looking around hoping someone was hiding.

Maybe, like me, you struggled with a learning disability.

Maybe you were always the last one asked to the dance.

And that’s just childhood.  Yikes!   Adulthood brings a whole new train load doesn’t it?

Yet, the good news is that’s not the end of the story.  It’s only the first chapter.

See Paul promised something amazing.

He said, “When I accept I am weak then I become truly strong.”

When you realize and accept you have built in weaknesses.  Then you can start down the road to real power.

Because you come to God and say, “God accept me as I am, change me and fill me with your power.”

And the amazing thing?  He does.

Some of the most successful people I know are ones who are deeply flawed yet took on God’s power.  And in that power they did amazing things.

I’m living proof this works.

I’m even pretty good now at baseball.  Ok, well not so much.
