“Sometimes what’s left for us to do is to be weak and let God be strong.”
I am not strong. This is not a new realization for me. Yet, I am drawn in believing that I am strong enough. I once thought being strong is the key to a better self. Yes, maybe it is. But come to think of it, no one has ever been born strong since their birth. We enter this world as fragile being, ready to be broken anytime. And come to think of it, our weaknesses are what set us to the strong person we want to be.
The past month, I became irregular in blogging. Instead of a 2 days a week blog, it became only one. Why? Because I realized that I am not strong enough. There were battles I needed to win, trials I needed to endure and pain that I needed to heal. Sometimes, I want to cry, still can’t because I am not strong enough to cry; I want to shout out loud, yet my voice was not strong enough to find its way out. I want to withdraw from people, but I am not strong enough without the people around me. See, even in my weakness, I am still not strong enough.
Maybe I don’t need to be strong as a person in trial. Maybe what I need is to accept the fact that even the strongest people fall down many times. Maybe what’s left for me to do is surrender and let God be the source of my strength.
In these tough times, God is the only one I can confide with. He is strong and I am not. He is great and I am not. He can move mountains and I cannot. He can calm a wild ocean wave and I cannot. He can steady an agitated heart and I cannot.
In these tough times, God steadies my heart.
Here’s a song of Kari Jobe, Steady my Heart:
