When I am weak…

…He is strong!

I am feeling a little weak today.  A little weepy.  A little bit like a Freak Out waiting to happen.
And it did happen.
I Burst into tears today. Ugh. My dear friend just prayed for me.  Hand on me.  Peace washing over my heart, mind and strength.
She reminded me that maybe my faults, shortcomings, personality yucks were never going to change.  I might grow, but these areas where I struggle, they might never go away.  They are what the Lord uses to show me I need Him.  I can’t do it by myself.  When I am weak, He is strong.
Inside I rail against that idea that I will never fully change in this life.  But as I have thought about it, I can thank Him for this sursee.  This reminder that I need Him.  I can’t live this life without Him.
Yes.  I need you, Jesus.  Fill me up where I am lacking.  Change me. Remind me when I am weak that You are standing there ready to give me strength.  Show me that You are there, ready to fill me.  This weakness is a sursee because it reminds me again that You are there.
 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.  II Corinthians 12:10
