When I am Weak, He is Strong

That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:10 NLT)

Do you ever have a day or a week, when it seems like you are failing at everything you do?? That has been the case for me this past week! I felt as if I had failed as a wife, as a sister, as a daughter and as a friend! I even felt like I was a failure to my patients at work! I have been told that the lifestyle that my husband and I live serving The Lord is all wrong and that we shouldn't do everything we do. I was at the lowest of lows this week and I began to let depression and anxiety set in! But yesterday when I was in the shower I started crying out to God asking him to move in my life and change my situation! That's when he spoke to me! I could feel this scripture burning in my spirit! 

Our weaknesses, the insults that are thrown at us, our hardships, our persecutions and all of these trials we go through are ment to teach us to rely on God to take care of us!! They are meant to show us how much we need him and to how us how strong he really is!!

  1. Maggi, people only say those things to you because of who lives inside of you. It is a spiritual battle that Jesus Christ has already overcome for you and Josh on the Cross !!! Remember what mommies usually teach us when you are little.... Misery loves company. Keep living the life called you and Josh to live . I wouldn't trade working for The Lord for anything . Yesterday's devotion talked about Unspeakable Joy! That is why the world does not like it! It is a brand new week : ) love you! Pamela Britt Malone
