weak - STRONG !

2Cor.12:9 “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am WEAK, then am I STRONG.”

************

Do you get discouraged,
When your weakness…you do see;
When others…all around you,
See the same…and must agree?

Some appear to have it all together,
On the outside…all looks great;
But, we never know for sure,
The troubles piled upon their plate.

Some are good at concealing,
The outside of their cup is clean;
But, what lurks beneath the surface,
What lurks in the unseen?

Do not be discouraged,
For when we’re weak that’s good;
We know for sure…our limits,
When we’ve done all we could.

But, there’s a Higher Power,
Our Creator…Father God;
And, He knows our limitations,
Our need to have Him as our LORD.

We have this blessed hope…within,
His strength is all we need;
Our natural strength won’t get us through,
That still, small voice…we must heed.

So, be of good cheer,
When we see our weakness…know;
His strength is all we need,
Stronger and stronger in Him…grow.

When we see those all around us,
Who, so stalwart do appear;
Remember that they too,
Will one day…be stripped of their veneer.

When that day comes,
And, it surely will;
Be kind…be gracious to them,
Smile a lot and just be still.

Our Father has His time-table,
And, He’s always right on time;
He will begin to show them,
From the pit of their abilities…the way to climb.

The way up…is always down,
And, when we hit the bottom;
There…He will be to help us,
Draw us close to His bosom.

When we surrender all our strength,
Put Father in control;
Then, we begin to see,
His strength come forth…unfurl.

What a glorious revelation,
When we begin to see;
That His ways are always best,
It always was His plan for you and me!
