Finding Strength In Weakness

I was encouraged by this today and felt selfish keeping it to myself...

When I was at my lowest, confounded by obstacles...I discovered an astonishing truth: God is attracted to weakness. He can't resist those who humble and honestly admit how desperately they need him. Our weakness, in fact, makes room for his power.--Jim Cymbala

We all have different seasons in life that magnify our weakness. But do we recognize that weakness? Or in our pride do we act as though we can live life on our own and create our own strength. Have I forgotten that I was created to be dependent?

In this season, I am recognizing my weakness as a mother and a wife. Recognizing my weakness is the most important thing I can do for my family. If they see anything good in me it is because of God. I want to be known for my weakness and his strength. What will you be known for?
