Finding Strength in Weakness

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

It’s in my times of weakness that
His strength is best revealed.
It’s when I’m feeling helpless
He reminds me I am sealed
By His own Spirit, till the day
He comes to take me home.
So there’s no call to be distraught,
For I am not alone.
My trials are opportunities
For Jesus to display
His awesome grace and power
In each moment of my day.
And when I find Christ’s awesome pow’r
Displayed for all to see,
It’s worth it all, for then I know
His power rests on me.
“And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you,
for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’
Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV
