Day #4- Weakness

Everything in my human wisdom tells me to be strong.  I just need to pick myself up by my bootstraps and carry on, right?  Get it together!  Get a move on!  Sometimes God has to remind even me that I have a chronic illness and there will be days…like today…when I feel like I can barely put one foot in-front-of the other.  I have come to be grateful for days like this however because God so powerfully makes Himself known to me…something I could never muster up on my own.  Today in my weakness I am thankful…because God in His great strength keeps showing up!

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.  2 Corinthians 12:9-10
