We all want to be strong but what if being strong means first you have to be weak?

If you love somebody, that’s what makes you strong.

We all want to be strong but what if being strong means first you have to be weak? What if being strong means you will need someone to help you be strong? What if becoming strong means being vulnerable and trusting someone!

This past week I had some tests at Mayo Clinic that revealed new conditions that are linked to my Lupus disease that I wasn’t quite ready to hear. I may be facing several surgeries for serious unexpected findings. I am not saying that I am not afraid, I am not saying that I am not praying for a miracle, what I am saying is that I trust God and even if this ends up in a way that I don’t want, He is still all I have!

Trusting God is being vulnerable to Him, it’s unconditional, it’s trusting Him in whatever He does, it’s ok, even if it’s NOT what we want.

Needing to be strong means letting someone, that includes God, to help you be strong even if it means becoming weak soomeone can or God  can help you be strong. The best thing I ever did was learn to be weak with God, so that he could make me strong. I know that He is all that I have!

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12: 9, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Stop fighting, stop flexing your mental muscles and admit your weaknesses. Then God will be your strength.
