Needing Inspiration Today?

This may fit the bill...

You will want to turn off the soothing music on Playlist - to your right.

That is why, for Christ’s sake, 
I delight in weaknesses, 
in insults,
in hardships, 
in persecutions, 
in difficulties. 
For when I am weak, then I am strong. 
 2nd Corinthians 12:10

Folks, this scripture speaks volumes to me.  
For the last week, I've felt and endured each of the above.  
Weakness, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties.  
I can take weakness, and even hardships or difficulties,
but insults and persecutions cut me at the knees.  
Not so much for the hurt and pain of my flesh, 
but because I can't defend my Savior the way I so deeply desire.  
I feel like I'm fighting with a dull butter knife, instead of a sharp sword.  
The only way I know to get better at defending my God 
is to bury myself deeply into scripture.   
His word, His soothing promises.  
I hope someday I can shine the light of Christ Jesus 
to all who question His existence and final plan.  
Until then, I will abide in Him, and read His word.



Until tomorrow, abiding in Him, God willing.

I remember seeing this on T.V. Thanks for posting this today. What an inspirational story! I know from personal experiences, I've been "broken" many times - only God can mend and heal the broken. Blessings from Wiscosnin!
