Source of Strength



Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities,
in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions,
in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
- 2 Corinthians 12:10

If there is something my Grandparents inculcated in my being this is it! My trip last week though it made me skip Word Filled Wednesday and other regular commitments I have here it afforded me more time reading the Bible. It was an immersion at work and a retreat for me at the same time. And for whatever reason I was lead to this verse several times and thus today I'm just making a shout out of what's been pre-occupying me and my source of strength over the past days.

I wish you all a blessed Wednesday!

You've chosen a strong word, and certainly worth meditating on. The battle is not to the strong, but the faith-filled. Bless you!
