Five Minute Friday: "Weak"

Weak - (definition 2) - liable to break or give way under pressure; easily damaged.

I hate the weak parts of me.

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.

  1. I find it amazing that God can do so many things - like use the weakness that we have to His perfect will. Weakness is something to be embraced but it sure can be hard to do, can't it? Thank you for the honest post. - Lori
