Five Minute Friday: "Weak"
Weak - (definition 2) - liable to break or give way under pressure; easily damaged.
It has been said that God uses the weak and foolish things to confound the wise (I Corinthians 1:27). I'm sure that's true (the Bible says it, doesn't it?), but right now, the weak and foolish things about me are confounding me. I'm not the sharpest crayon in the box, but I'm not the dullest one either.
How? How can the Almighty use all this weakness to help anyone? Weak in body, and occasionally weak in mind (at least I think so), doesn't seem the kind of materials to build a family from; even a spiritual one.
I need to grow strong--to rise up out of the ashes to be truly useful.
I can't stand the weakness. I can't.
