My Delight in Weakness

Many of my family and village have reached out to me d this journey to comment on how strong I’ve been or to tell me that because I’m so strong that I will make it through this fight victoriously. But let me just tell you that there strength you see is not mine at’s God! When I think back over my life and I think about the real tangible lessons that my parents and grandparents taught me about struggling and suffering- what I so vividly remember in my father’s fight against cancer and heart disease, my mother’s fight against the debilitating pain of migraines and back and knee pains, my grandmother’s fight against Parkinson’, my grandfather’s fight after a stroke was the power and strength of putting on the Full Armour of God. The word tells 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.

The reason for me pointing this out is because I’ve shared with many of you that God revealed early on to me that this journey I’m on is not mine to keep but to share. But I want to make it as my daddy says “Abundantly Clear” that each and every one of you has the ability to be That Strong because as my Pastor Jeremiah A Wright Jr. So eloquently wrote in his book of sermons What Makes You So’s not my strength...It’s Christ!
