We made it! Feel Good Friday family! Our Inspiring Quote of the Day says...
"Give God your weakness, and he'll give you his strength."
Paul talked about this in a well known passage of scripture. And he talked about how he went to the Lord and asked him to remove the burden. But God said that His grace is sufficient. Paul knew he was unable to overcome it with his own strength, and we at times feel that too. We may feel weak, and we are...but God can use that. All we have to do is give that weakness over to him. Stop trying to figure it out on your own, stop trying to fix it then bring it. No he says bring it to me as it is, as you are. Come to me broken. Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I'll give you rest...when we submit to him, we then become strong! But not by our power or might, but by God's and by his Spirit.
2 Corinthians 12:8-10
8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
