All of us have weak spots and strong spots in life.
Weak places that keep us on our knees.
Strong places. And we forget to pray.
Having M.S. for eleven years, I’m daily aware of many weak places. Needy places I’ve learned to work around. Weak spots that remind me I need Someone Else to enable me to live strong in this broken world.
I have weak spots, too, that have nothing to do with M.S. Areas of brokenness designed to turn my gaze upward. Sometimes I remember. More often, I forget to go to Him for strength.
One thing I’m learning.
The weakest places of our lives is where we find our greatest strength.
Maybe you’ve found this to be true in your own weak spots.
Ernest Hemingway once wrote:
“The world breaks everyone, and those who are broken are strongest in the broken places.”
But Scripture says that.
His strength is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9).
Let’s not despise anything that brings us to our knees.
Finding it when we have none of our own.
Strength made perfect when we are weakest.
A strength we will never find anywhere else.
“. . . out of weakness were made strong.” (Hebrews 11:34)
