On purpose. With purpose.

For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10 ESV

“For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

For when I am discouraged
For when I am overwhelmed
For when I am inadequate
For when I am emotionally drained
For when dispair threatens to overpower
For when I feel like a terrible parent
For when I feel isolated and alone in my pain

I am strong
I choose to be lifted up
I choose to rise above
I am made for this job, this right now
I have filled up
I am victorious
I am used by God
I am powerful and capable and righteous and courageous

I am strong.

I am a righteous, holy temple, designed and perfected through redemption
I am made to live for and be used by the sovereign Creator of existence.
I am blessed (how trite this sounds! How we toss this word around with such carelessness!)

I walk in love.
I live not in dread, but anticipation, searching and seeking You
For Your grace in my everyday.

I am weak
that Your grace will shine all the brighter out of me.

I am content.
