love this. thanks, Bethany.
learning that to be strong doesn't mean i have somehow figured out how to 'do it all' or to 'do it all on my own' without help. It doesn't mean things don't or won't affect me, pain me, or even threaten to crush me (2 Cor. 4:8-10). it means to find out that i am actually quite weak...and yet STRONG in Him. i can trade my weaknesses and vulnerabilities for His power, His strength. For His power makes me perfect. I am made perfect, strong, and complete because of how He took upon Himself my fallenness, imperfection, inadequacy, struggles, fears, and utter weakness. thankful.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Cor. 12:9
