But we have this treasure in jars of clay,
to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
We are afflicted in everyway, but not crushed;
perplexed but but not driven to despair,
persecuted, but not forsaken,
struck down , but not destroyed;
always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that
the life of Jesus may also be manifest in our bodies.
2 Corinthians 4:7-10
My weakness isn't about me and where I fall short.
It's about Him and all His glory.
His surpassing great power is shown through my inability to do it on my own.
I need Him on every level and that is good for me and pleasing to Him.
Why do I fight it so? This stubborn nature of mine, thinking I need to have it together. It is the lie of this age...To do it all, well, and all the time.
Our limits are our friends not the enemy.
They escort us to the One who has no lack.
