Weakness

I'm reading 2nd Corinthians, today Paul delights in his weaknesses. Today I'm feeling weak, worn down, tired, scared.

I should be delighting in my weakness right? Paul did it...but all I really want to do is be sick.

I made a decision to take a leap of faith this Sunday. I feel like it's the right thing to do. I want to please God. Someone needs to hear my story. My dad told me I would have to talk or give a small testimony. I'm going to have to stand up in front of a huge group of people and talk. What is wrong with me, I must be crazy, I can't do this!!!

But He said to me, my grace is sufficient for you. For my power is made perfect in weakness. 2nd Corinthians 12:9

Mercy Lord, mercy. Quiet these thoughts. Give me strength to do this for you. I'm scared. I know what needs to be done, I will do this for you Lord. Take this anxiety, take this fear. If I am laughed at, you were laughed at first. If I am looked down on, you were looked down on first. If they hate me, you were hated first.

When I'm weak, I am made strong through you. I will rejoice in this weakness because I know you will be up there with me and you will be able to shine through me. I will worship you. You have a plan that includes someone like me.

We are made strong in our weakness through Jesus. He will never leave us or forsake us. And you're right, someone does need to hear your story and see what God has done for you. You have a purpose. You are beautiful!

Thank you for this!

God is with you now and will be with you when you give your testimony. God is faithful. You are in my prayers.
