My teacher once asked us to name what our strengths where and everyone in the class would quickly shout there strengths because they were confident about them, but once she asked us what our weakness was everyone in the room was hesitant to tell the class about what there weakness was. I mean why would you want to let people around you know what your weakness is right.

I know when I think of my weaknesses I feel disappointed in myself I feel like I can't get to where I want to because of my weakness  either in life or love or education and it makes me feel like I'm not strong enough to battle these weaknesses

For me my weaknesses come in all shapes and forms from:

  • Feeling Like I'm Not Good Enough 
  • Feeling like I'm not Strong Enough 
  • Feeling like I can't accomplish what's ahead of me
  • Always comparing myself to others 
  • Always thinking I can't make it

And so much more, maybe they aren't normal weaknesses but they are mine. They are the things that make me not be able to do the best cause I feel like this and it's hard when I feel like my weaknesses out way my strengths.

Anyway this week I decided to start doing a plan and on Monday morning where I felt ready down I decided to start reading one of my bible plans. The first one I found was one from Steven Furtick (From Elevation Church) the plan was from his book (Un)Qualified. You want to know what's funny the first day the devotion I read was titled

"A Secret Weapon Called Weakness." 

Like what i couldn't believe it its something I've been dealing with for a very long time and he says it's a Secret weapon. So I started reading it and thank God I did because it's what I needed to hear. In his plan he goes on to talk about us not wanting to feel WEAK but wanting to feel STRONG. I'm like yes I don't want to feel weak anymore i want to feel strong again and feel better about myself
Later he says

It isn't about being strong despite weaknesses. And it isn't about being strong after weaknesses are gone. It is about being strong in and through because of weakness ... The things that drive you crazy about yourself might be central to the fulfillment of your potential

When I was reading this I'm like wow, I started thinking about what he said and made me think maybe my weakness and my strength both help me get to where I am without my weakness I won't be able to grow in my strength. I need to stop stressing of what my life will be and why my life feels like this all the time. It is what it is and I need to remember that my strengths and weaknesses make me who I am.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 reads,

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Reading this plan made me thank God for who I am for everything that he put me through he made me who I am for a reason, he has always been there for me since day one and he knows me better than I know myself. He knows my flaws he knows my strengths and my weakness yet he still loves me the same and continues to help me in my life . Thank you Jesus just as I am I come. Through all my good times, my struggles and hardships you have never left me I am strong even through these times because of you.
