In Weakness...

And he said unto me, 'My grace is sufficient for thee:
 for my strength is made perfect in weakness.'
II Corinthians 12:9a

I found this 'baby' tree on a walk thru my neighborhood.  
The sun brought out such color - even though it's a brown time in nature.  
It's a tree that is still weak - and needs a stick to give it support to stand 
as it grows.  Many times I feel just like this tree.  But this is not a 
 bad place to be.  That's when we can allow Jesus to be our strength.
  There's no better time to run to Him.  And that's what He wants!

The rest of the verse reads...

...Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, 
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

God bless you today!  And if I can pray for you - please contact me!

So, true - we are so weak and need God's strength. I certainly can't glory in my own strength, because I have none. Thanks for sharing at the Bible Buddies Link party, Joyce.
