ANSWERING SOME OF THE STRUGGLES
All of us have weaknesses. But did you ever notice they change over time? Here's a broad look at my weaknesses over the course of my life:
-->Elementary - too impressionable-->Teens - peer pressure-->College - addictions-->Young Adult - low self esteem-->Adult - anxiety/insecurity
I look at this and it exhausts me. I realize that for ALL of my life, I've struggled, fought, lost & won against weaknesses of all shapes and sizes. Maybe you have too. Two encouraging thoughts...
One, we are in this together. You and me, standing shoulder-to-shoulder (& sometimes needing to lean on each other's shoulders). We are in our weaknesses but we are not alone. Two, nobody said it better than our Savior when He exhorted Paul to say to us all, "My grace is enough; it's all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness." What are you struggling with? Take heart. I'm struggling too; we are in this together & we have HIS strength on our side!
