"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Thankful for the weak days..

So I've had this before in one of my posts but I just love it!  I used to look at being weak, lost, unsure, however you want to say it as just almost giving up, going into that cave and hiding away but here lately it is so different.  I finally realized that when I am weak, I am always turning to God for comfort.  Always asking the Lord to help me out, help me see things His way, to not lose my faith but to make it stronger and to give me that peace I need.  I love these verses because it goes to show that when you are weak you are really strong.  I love how much we lean on the Lord when we are weak and I am sure He loves it too!!  Being weak makes us seek Him out more and more so to me that is a good thing! and as the verse below says....
"What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31

How can that be a bad thing!?!!  When others are bashing you, making you doubt your own faith, your own self we need to remember that God is always there and He is for us!

"Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "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."  2 Corinthians 12:8-10

Great post Nicole..
And it is hard to feel weak, especially I think as woman, cause we dont want to give up that control to anyone else..some times even God..
I am going through a little bit of that right now, with this cast and crutches.. there is some thing i simply can not do. and to wait on someone else to do it is like fingernails on a chalk board.. but god is making me slow down,and give up so stuff.. But one thing i do know is
that he has his reason..and that is good enough for me..

I totally agree Karen! That has been my hardest thing, letting go of that control and letting God have it, even when I know He controls everything!

I know it is so hard to have to wait on someone to help you and I know right now it has to be hard on you. lol But like you said God has a purpose for everything so maybe this was His way of 'making' you let go and slow down some. Yeah, I know we may not like it but.... lol

Big hugs to you woman!!!

Too true.. we dont always know for what reason things happen, but i have to know that what ever it is , is for the best..
And it effect the entire family.. it is a trickling effect, as far as it touches everyone in the family , in some way shape or form.
I told my husband and kids.. you dont know how much mom does, until she is not doing it!!!
Have a blessed week

LOL! So true on all of it but I love that last part!! It's true that a woman's work is never done or appreciated until we can't do it!

Hope you have a blessed week too!
