That is why, for Christ’s sake,
I delight in weaknesses,
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.
