I have such a hard time admitting when I am weak. Can you relate?! When you think about it though, the moment we acknowledge our weakness the more we can tap into God's unlimited pool of POWER! It is ALWAYS available to us whenever we are in need. We need only ask and then receive. But if I can just be honest, it takes me forever to humble myself, admit I am weak, ask for God's power, and then receive it. Why? Ugh. I have always grown up independent. I am the "fixer"...I am the "helper." How can the fixer/helper also be weak and need help. UM BECAUSE YOU'RE HUMAN CAREN (#facepalm). God knows my weakness and to weakness He extends His grace.
Earlier this week I made a horrible mistake as a mom. It left me rattled, defeated, afraid, discouraged, doubtful in my abilities as a mom...and weak. As I prayed thanking God for His protection, He reminded me of this very truth. He wants to do an exchange with us...our weakness for His power. God will always meet where I lack and I couldn't be more thankful. That exchange can't happen though until I humble myself and reach out to Him. Yes, it requires me to be intentional, proactive, and willing to swallow my pride but the result is a deeper relationship with my creator and a heart filled with gratitude!
