Living Weak and perfect..
This year has been a great start for me. I have started taking classes in pursuit of a college degree. It has not been easy; but, anything worth doing is not easy. I am finding more about myself than at any other time in my life. I have noticed that I have a lot to learn about the process of college as well as learning the subject matter. For any working adult who is doing online school; meanwhile, supporting a family, I am praying for YOU. I want you to know that your not alone in the struggle. As you read further my prayer is that you are blessed but this friday focus.
2 Corinthians 12:9
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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Online education forces you to prioritize your time, no doubt about it. As I read the above scripture I was feeling low in my studies. I had a lot of pride in myself using past accomplishments as a false conception for school. Let me assure you that it was completely deflated within the first week. I am glad I can run to the bible for comfort.
Paul was feeling low too; although, his reasons were more severe. He did uncover a valuable truth: God’s power is made perfect in our weaknesses. His strength, his source is embodied in earthen vessels that are broken, and casted as refuse by society’s standards.
Think about that. In order for us to fully become perfected by God, we must be equally humbled and pursuaded that our source comes from our dependency upon the heavenly Father. It is this expession we can boldly claim the grace that paul revealed what was told to him bt the almighty.
When we fail, frustrated or overwhelmed. Recognize that the grace the Lord gives is sufficient for your situation. When you feel low please, meditate on that little nugget this week. If you are in ministry; consider those who may not know this gift of grace.
