All sorts of doubts plague my mind.
I am assaulted with lies and insults within.
My self talk seems bent on destroying the truth I know.
I see my weaknesses.
I understand the powerlessness of self to be different than I am.
But still I strive to be, to change and yet it is impossible apart from His grace. It is His work in me that I must surrender to. So I choose to glory in my weaknesses knowing that it is the power of Christ dwelling in me that can change me.
So I must choose to surrender to His power, His grace, for it alone is enough. It’s all I need.
“…My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
