Everything changes when you realize that your deficiencies put you in good company.
You may be looking at your life today and all you can focus on is your weaknesses.
Comparing yourself to others only steals your JOY!
For some reason, it is so hard for us to see anything positive. We tend to look at everything negatively and let that consume our entire lives.
What makes us this way?
There could be one hundred people in a room telling you how beautiful you are and one person telling you that you are ugly and you would focus on the one. Instead of holding your head up high and walking in who you are supposed to be, you are comparing your journey to everyone else around you, wanting to be just like them.
You may think all of these negative things about yourself found in the picture above….
BUT YOU ARE CALLED FOR SO MUCH MORE!
THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!!
What we have to understand is that God loves our weaknesses!
For when we are weak, he is our strength.
Our weaknesses are not by accident, God purposely uses each one of them to demonstrate his power through us.
God is not impressed by self-sufficiency, he draws to the weak because they admit they need him.
If every single person had the exact same strengths and weaknesses, we wouldn’t get anywhere in life.
Can I get an AMEN?
That is why God has a plan for each of us, a purpose that only we can conquer with our weaknesses.
So today I challenge you to write down each of your strengths and weaknesses and thank God for making you the way that he did.
Even when you do not see the path, he is making one.
2 Corinthians 12:9-11~ But he said to me “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Be confident in who God has created YOU to be! Your destiny is not your best friends destiny! Your purpose is your own!
Embrace the beautiful….strong….brave…..woman of God that you are……
Your weaknesses are actually your hidden strengths
