Admitting that I am weak has been difficult for me over the course of my life. I grew up in the 80’s where women were taught to be strong and to rely only on yourself because others will let you down. That hasn’t proven true over time but I still like to do things myself, because well, no one will do them as well as me., right? For most of my life my worth has been based on performance. God is teaching me that my worth is not based on what I do but who I am and when I take on tasks that He hasn’t assigned to me, well, I’m just miserable. I am choosing to be still in this season of my life and listen to Him as I study His Word and pray for His direction. I am a doer, so sitting still and waiting is very difficult but I choose to so. He has a plan and a place for me and for you.
I am learning to be ok with my weakness, because in it I am made strong through Christ.
