my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so that the power of Christ may rest upone me. - 2 Corinthians 12:9
often times, i see people post pretty pictures with Bible verses and to be honest, i find them shallow. i know that's a horrible thing to say about a picture with a Bible verse, but often times I find them inauthentic and vague. but here i am. in an attempt to be authentic with my life and to show that this goes deeper than a pretty picture with an encouraging word, i break my own rules.
i have been struggling with anxiety. anxiety and insecurity and fear and doubt.
and many times it comes to the point where all i can say is "I need help. I can't do this on my own. I need You to help me." and i hear the truth that the Gospel really blossoms when desperation is met with the face of Jesus. then we realize, "I need You. I can't do this without You. I have no other options but You."
So here I am. Yes, a pretty picture but clinging deserately to this truth. That "my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Reminding myself every hour, every minute if needed. Clinging to this truth, this Gospel. In the midst of the fears and anxiety and wishing it would all go away. I cling to this. That despite my weakness, grace (something I can't do anything to deserve), is sufficient and God's glory still shines.
