I Am Weak Yet He Is Strong

  …and let the childhood song resonate with you just a bit longer.   Don’t know what I am referring to?   “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong, they are weak but he is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me; the Bible tells me so.”   As a child I used to sing this over and over if I couldn’t sleep. Mostly because my parents used to sing songs with me as part of my bed time ritual and if one stuck, it was sung {and re-sung} until I passed out. These types of songs also kept me calm if I woke with nightmares or if I was battling a low in my childhood depression.  Like a meditation mantra said over and over again; it brought peace to my head and my heart.   Cut to present day.   I am still weak. He is still strong. And I still need a constant reminder that Jesus loves me just the way I am.  Although it would be great if I could go around singing childhood Vacation Bible School songs, I am sure my co-workers and the people I pass by in the grocery stores would think I was a looney {they wouldn’t be too far off}.  Instead I now turn to a more comforting bible verse:  

“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

  “My power is made perfect in weakness.” God’s love for me, His presence in me, the grace He shows me; all made perfect because I am aware of my weaknesses and have accepted them.  And that is ok.   Why?   Because I am weak and He is strong.
