The Struggle Is Real

Everyone has a struggle.  It may be with self-loathing, a shoe buying addiction or a relationship.  It may be weight loss, an ill parent or a crazy person you gave birth to.  It might be your un-understanding spouse or a boss that just doesn’t appreciate your dedication.  Some struggle with their past.  Some struggle with the uncertainty of their future.  I struggle with remembering negative things people have said to me.  We all have some type of struggle.  Some have more than others!  They change daily at times.

What do you struggle with?  What is your weakness?

The Lord has been showing me some very important things the last few days.  He has been reminding me that weaknesses are what He specializes in for us.  He stands up for us.  He is our strength when we are weak.  He’s like one of those jumbo erasers when it comes to a weakness.  HE can help us lighten those and even erase them!  How exciting!  You are never ever alone in your weaknesses.  He will comfort us in scripture, surround us with people who support us and show us over and over that we are not alone.  That right there is awesome.

In the Bible, Paul talks about having a thorn in his side.  That struggle had to have been pretty annoying.  Just as Paul knew, I know the struggle is real.  I had a student one time that said that all the time (“The struggle is real, Mrs. Clawson”).  I miss that kid, but when I think about that saying now, I think,

Again, like Paul knew, I know that MY GOD IS REAL!  My God is so much MORE real than any struggle we may go through.

Thank you GOD for that.  Thank YOU for being bigger and better than any struggle I may come against.  Thank you for being STRONG in my weakness.   Amen!

#thankfulEVERYday

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. 2 Cor 12:9
