“What if your life demands this from you?”
“What if your life demands that you be exactly where you are in order for you to get to where you want to be? This current circumstance, situation, relationship?”
I was asked these questions by a friend recently and found that I may not be where I want to be, but I am beyond confident that this it exactly where I’m suppose to be in life. You see, I’m beginning to realize that my life is demanding that I am here, in this space of transition and change and it’s absolutely necessary in order for me to move forward.
I’m discovering that I have all I need in order to be the person I already am. I don’t need to look for outside validation or criticism. I am essentially whole and I CAN do anything as God has already given me freedom and strength. I just need to dig deep, draw it out and live in this way.
Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me,
My grace is enough; it’s all you need.
My strength comes into its own in your weakness.
Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become. 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
