By His Strength

Where I am weak: He is strong.
His strength is made perfect in my weakness.

Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. 
From the end of the earth I will cry to You, 
When my heart is overwhelmed; 
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 
For You have been a shelter for me, 
A strong tower from the enemy.... 
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings." <-------- How amazing is this?!?!?!?!?! 

Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

Some moments I feel more than adequate, more than capable, the strongest, the able. Other moments I feel shoved to the ground and told try harder you continue to fail and continue to fail and continue to fail.  So I try harder. And the ground is where I find myself again repeatedly told you aren't enough. No matter what you do you can't. You just can't. 

So this is me crying out to God and begging Him to work in my weaknesses, to be what only He can be to so many people; to be my rock and my fortress for His grace is sufficient enough. He is the one I am to look to please. I will not satisfy this world. I will not satisfy people. I was not created to do this. Therefore, I should take my own thoughts/advice & look to the Lord alone to sustain and satisfy. 

Lord be my Everything. 

and on this ROCK I shall not move. 
The heart of the ocean can't pull me from YOU.
