In My Weakness

Life has thrown me a lot of curve balls this week.  It’s a perfect week to be reminded of this verse…”And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” ~2 Corinthians 12:9

There is much I could say about this verse, but there is a song that has been running through my head that says it all so perfectly.  Read the words carefully.  This is Scriptural truth put to music.

IMG_1767When living life for Jesus Christ becomes too hard a task,
When obedience means sacrifice that seems too much to ask;
That’s when I learn that my own strength isn’t really strength at all,
And I find rest in humbleness when I surrender all.

In my weakness He is strong;
In my need He leads me on.
When I come to the end of all I am,
And I place my trust in Him;
That’s when His strength begins –
In my weakness.

When failures in my human strength have weakened all my pride,
And ruined hopes in fallen dreams have crumbled me inside;
It’s then by grace I finally see the strength of Jesus Christ,
His victory is real in me when weakness fills my life.

In my weakness He is strong;
In my need He leads me on.
When I come to the end of all I am,
And I place my trust in Him;
That’s when His strength begins –
In my weakness.

  1. Great words. We are thankful you are on this journey with us. 2Cor. 12:9 speaks volumes regarding our need for Christ’s strength. God, in His wisdom, hid Paul’s infirmity so that we could easily insert ours. How gracious is He to us!
