My grace is enough; it’s all you need He said. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size–abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become. There’s more to come: I continue to shout His praise even when I’m hemmed in with troubles, because I know how troubles can develop passionate patience in me, and how that patience, in turn, forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping me alert for whatever God will do next. When my skin sags and my bones get brittle, God is my rock-firm and faithful. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. He says “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” #Failure  #Strength #Limitations
