Satisfied Sunday: Weakness

Photo credit for this radiant photograph can be found by clicking here. 










This morning, I am celebrating the fact of my flaws, failures, and ultimate 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."
~ 2nd Corinthians 12:9-10

+ There will always be someone more skinny, talented, popular, beautiful, disciplined, joyful, and outgoing than I, but even in my brokenness, God still decided to create the one and only crazy human that is me. (And you, by the way.)

+ The world may be in shambles, and my tiny light may seem like a waning candle against the pitch-black night, but it's not about what I can do, it's about what Christ can do through me.

+ I may fail and fall consistently as a sister, daughter, human, and friend, but God's grace covers me, and I want to discover the joy of that more.

+ I don't really know how I feel about this blog right now, but this is what's on my heart and mind.
