The Strength in Weakness

There will be times when things don’t seem to go according to our plan.

This could be an unfortunate outcome in a particular situation or a deal gone bad, and sometimes, these are long and difficult seasons.

There are times when it seems that we are faced with trials after countless trials.

Continual challenges seem to appear and there seems to be no end in sight.

Battle after mother f’ing Battle.

When you’re going through your trials and valleys, how do you continue moving forward?

It’s not easy, and likely not what you want to hear, but you must remain committed to moving forward, even if just one step at a time, with a hope and belief that you will prevail.

That is if you do not quit.

“When I am weak, I am strong”

There are actually some real gems to be found when you’re in this place.

There is a Beauty in your weakness.

Not in the weakness itself, but in the opportunity you have been given in your circumstance to allow your determination and God’s power to shine through you.

Plain and simple, we don’t grow nearly as much during the ‘good’ times

Our growth comes from Challenges

Our growth comes from Testing

Our growth comes from Obstacles

We know this already, we just don’t like it.

The bible talks about this a lot in various ways such as,

• The meek shall inherit the earth.

• The first will be last and the last will be first

• And of course, when I am weak, then I am strong.

Consider my friends, if you’re going through a PIT, there is PEAK in your future.

Faint not, continue to move forward and harness the strength inside of you to
push forward.

God will meet you in your place of weakness and the strength you need will be sufficient to see you through to the other side.

But you are going to have to Battle even when you are weak.

And in your weakness, you will find your strength, and this strength will serve you for the rest of your life.

Keep fighting my friends, there’s a light at the end and a story that you will be able to tell that will make it all worth it someday.
