When the Goal is Weakness

My great friend and mentor tells me I’ve got the wrong goal. When I claim I’m trying to be stronger or better in order to overcome something, she reminds me of a different goal: weakness.

Weakness means I depend upon God and draw upon His unlimited resources. Weakness means I stay humble. Weakness means I remain in a position of reliance upon Jesus and not myself.

When she asked, “What if the goal is weakness instead?” I felt a fresh breeze of freedom in heart. I remember Paul’s words from the Lord. he says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Paul writes, “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

All day long, I’ve thought about a new goal: weakness.
