Weak and Well-able

Comparison latches onto to my heart this morning, trying to pull me under, “Why don’t you have the energy she has? Why can’t you do what she does?” An embarrassment  only I feel, I wonder what is wrong with me.

Then Jesus whispers to me as I read His Word, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I must be going to be awfully powerful today, because I feel so awfully weak. I guess I am exactly where I need to be to get the supernatural help I need. “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me…for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 – 10

Maybe you too feel weak today. Maybe raising children has made you want to raise the white flag of surrender. Maybe yesterday no one in your house acknowledged it was Mother’s Day. Maybe the responsibilities you face this week seem bigger than the heart and strength inside your body.

You’re in the right place, my friend. It is here, when we are at our weakest, that He is at His strongest.

Jesus, Monday morning brings a new list of responsibilities and challenges. Help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that You and I can’t handle together. And not just handle, but conquer and have victory over. Amen



  1. Oh Lynn, I’ve been feeling the exact same way. I feel like I’ve been on auto pilot. I literally did nothing Saturday and Sunday. I had every intention of accomplishing much, but accomplished nothing.

    I actually meditated on the truth of this verse last night as I was trying to get to sleep. I’ve got a large to do list and a lot of unknowns this week. I am weak, I know nothing. He is strong, and He knows all. I’m resting in that.

    Praying His supernatural collides with where you feel your weakest today.

    See you in 5 days!! 🙂


  2. Oh Lynn, I’ve been through some health challenges the past few months and I completely understand. He has been my strength and used me in spite of it all. I’m SO grateful His super meets our natural and that His grace is always sufficient.

    Praying that as you wait on Him, your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. ((Hugs))

  3. Thank you Lynn, for writing this. It is something I deal with constantly. The devil has used this most all my life to keep me knocked down. At 43 yrs old I have yet to find anything that I excel at, and I’ve never been the pretty one, or the smart one, yet the bible tells me that I am exactly the type of person God uses. This gives me hope. I have been feeling paticularly weak in this area the past few days, I needed to be reminded of this truth. God Bless and keep you.

  4. Thank you. This is exactly how I’ve been feeling and just needed another perspective. Thank you for leading me in the right direction. And thank you, Jesus, for being my strength and my shield.

  5. Isn’t it encouraging to know we’re not alone? 🙂
