And I must be honest, these gift posts are getting harder and harder. Not because of lack of gifts, but mostly be I am lacking creativity in these days that start at sunrise and end around now...midnight.
Today's gift is weakness. Or actually that was yesterdays gift that never got posted or written! I am often reminded of how weakness is a gift in that it helps to create a dependency upon others. In my weakness I learn to ask for help, from friends, family, and God. If I possessed all of the strength I needed for each day I most likely would not use any of the many blessings that come about in my weakness.
In my weakness, I learn of the strengths of others.
In my weakness, I learn of the strength of God.
In my weakness, I get a glimpse of the community Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 11-13, one that is interdependent on each other and fully dependent upon the strength of God.
