When I Am WeakWhen I Am Weak
by Tom Norvell


    There are days when I feel that I do not have the energy to get out of bed to face the day. Somehow He gives me the energy and I breeze through the day.

    There are days when I think I cannot handle one more bit of bad news. Somehow when it comes, He empowers me to handle it.

    There are days when life is hard and the desire to continue fades. Somehow He sends relief and increases my desire to live.

    There are days when I wonder if the money will be there when the bills come. Somehow He provides a way and the bills are paid.

    There are days when I doubt His presence. Somehow He reveals Himself in the most surprising ways.

    There are days when I feel like my labors for Him are in vain. Somehow He sends someone or something to assure me they are not in vain.

There are days when I think I cannot handle one more bit of bad news. Somehow when it comes, He empowers me to handle it.
    There are days when I cannot find a reason for joy. Somehow He fills my life with so much joy that I am overwhelmed by it.

    There are days when temptations seem too strong for me to resist. Somehow He provides a way of escape or strength to resist.

    There are days when words come slowly, and when they do finally come they sound foolish and empty. Somehow He takes those words and uses them for good.

    There are days when I feel almost worthless. Somehow He reminds me of the price that has been paid for me.

    There are days when I wish I could see the way more clearly. Somehow He opens my eyes and I see Him more clearly.

    There are days when when I am weak. Somehow He makes me strong.

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ... For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10, NIV).

    Let Him be your strength!
