But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
ESV, 2 Corinthians 12:9
Strength to Move Forward
Perhaps on Sunday you felt a little overwhelmed as you considered the weight of your mental health struggles and the changes you need to make. When we are in the midst of an anxious or depressed season, making even tiny steps forward can be a challenge. Here is where Paul’s words can be so encouraging. In our weakness, God’s power is made perfect. He’s not expecting you to solve these things in your own strength, but in His strength. Don’t take that as an excuse to just sit back and wait for Him to make it all better though. Paul continued to press forward with sharing the gospel, and entrusted God to care for his soul in the process. May you be encouraged to press on toward full mental health this week. Apply some of the techniques Joy mentioned in the seminar. (If you missed the seminar, it should be available on the church website). As you press forward, find God’s power made perfect in your weakness.
Growing with you,
