His Power in Our Weakness

Why do we magnify our mistakes and our failures and overlook our achievements and successes?

You are your own biggest critic, isn’t that the truth?! The shouting voices of shame and guilt in our minds are not from God! Be still and listen for the soft whisper of GRACE, and grab hold of that!

And let’s open our eyes and CELEBRATE the things, both big and small, that we are doing well! Life is HARD; it’s constantly throwing us around and beating us up!

So maybe you haven’t given your kids a bath in three or four days, but you’ve remembered to feed him and show her a whole lot of love!  Good job mama, give yourself some GRACE!

Maybe you ate a bunch of junk food over the weekend while you’re trying to lose weight, but you still managed to do your workouts and be a good example to your family of the importance of exercise! Way to go girlfriend, show yourself some GRACE!

Perhaps you were angry and have said some really hurtful things to your husband this week, but you spent time praying over your relationship and reading a book about how you can improve your marriage. That’s what I’m talking about!! Now go apologize and give yourself some GRACE!

It’s time to focus the positives within ourselves, and quit flooding them out with the negatives! And when we are weak, let God’s strength shine through you!

2 Cor 12:9
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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
