God is truly amazing! I was going to do my TT post today of the strength of the Lord; then I went over to Iris‘ blog to see what was up and there was a verse of scripture on…guess what? The Strength of the Lord!
And He said unto me, “My grace is sufficent for thee, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore will I glory rather in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 (21st Century KJV)
I have had a tough week thus far… for no reason I can explain, I’ve been very weak. Yesterday, I found it almost impossible to get up from the bed. But in a funny way, I was ok. The verse of scripture swept through me and gave me peace.
I am thankful because it does not matter how weak I am – physically, emotionally, even spiritually! In fact, where God is concerned, the weaker the better. Because when I am at my weakest, then HIS strength shines through.
I am thankful because I don’t have to be anything more than what I am. My dad constantly tells me that God does not work with the qualified, He works with the available. It is humbling that in spite of my flaws and all my weaknesses, God still makes His grace available and continues to work in and through me.
That is why I’m thankful this week. Go on over to Iris’ at Sting My Heart to meet other thankful hearts and to give your own thanks.
