Why do we think weakness is a bad thing? Is it because we don't want to seem like we don't have it together?
The truth is God is visible when we allow our weakness to be seen by others. It can actually encourage someone else by you and I being vulnerable. The people around us can see His strength holding us up in the difficult moments of life.
Do you know anyone that you think has it all together? If you ask that person you can be sure they will let you know that their life isn't perfect. Nobody's life is perfect. That is a lie from the enemy, and we don't have to buy into it.
Today let's give up our false expectations and choose to believe what God says!
If you find yourself watching shows or movies that paint unrealistic expectations for your family and friends - stop watching them. It doesn't help build you up or help you to be the person God has already called you to be.
Replace some of your social media time with bible study and prayer. Take an opportunity to serve someone you know that is lonely or serve at a local mission. Do something that requires you to step out and give to someone else. It will allow God to use you in unique ways, and you will begin to shift your focus.
"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your care on Him, because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6-7
Let's admit that we are weak and need God's help to make it through our everyday lives.
Pride can hinder your ministry. God wants to use your circle of influence to point people to Him. Let Him use you and your family.
Blessings to you!!!
Living for Him,
