“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness…” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
This scripture holds more truth than you can imagine. How counter-cultural is it to share weakness and strife openly with others? How counter-cultural is it to have a Lord and Savior that was beaten and flogged, mocked and insulted, scorned and rejected. We are to be made like Christ. That’s right, living out your Christian faith is and should be far from easy, comfortable, sunshine and rainbows.
“…Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Does that mean you are to make yourself out to be a martyr? No. But take heart, be joyful in your time of suffering because you are representing Christ AT. ALL. TIMES. And you never know who’s life you will impact because of your trials.
I want to thank everyone who read my last post Then Comes the Baby in a Baby Carriage. The encouragement, comments, private messages and prayers are overwhelmingly unexpected and a breath of fresh air that is proof that Christ’s power is indeed made perfect in weakness. What a mighty God we serve. Stay tuned for another story that again brings glory to God through my weakness and will just plain blow your mind.
