Your weakness is your special gift


Your handicap is a providential gift 🎁

"Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn't get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan's angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn't think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it [thorn in the flesh]. Three times I did that, and then he told me,      My grace is enough; it's all you need.     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."
(2 Corinthians 12:7 MSG)

Grant me Lord the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.  Amen!
