Spread the Love Friday – Make Your Weaknesses Your Strengths

She sets her mind on things above, not earthly things.  Colossians 3:2

It’s Spread the Love Friday!  Do you have a weakness that you just can’t seem to overcome?  I’m talking about a weakness that brings fear to mind.  The kind that makes you tremble and causes a physical reaction.  Can you think of one?  Oh boy, can I!  The more I try to avoid it or ignore it, the more it takes control of me. In the Book of Judges we see that Samson had several weaknesses.  One was a lustful and roaming heart.  His weaknesses led to his demise.   So, what can we do?  I believe if we pray and have faith, God can help us turn our weaknesses into strengths.

A couple of years ago I went on a business trip to a conference.  There were speakers from around the world, who were rich and famous.  This company required the spouses of the business leaders to speak.  I watched a very timid woman speak in front of several hundred people.  Her voice was shaking and so were hands.  So much that, she dropped her notes all over the floor.  But, guess what?  I have never liked public speaking, and when I saw this lady speak, she gave me confidence.  In fact, she was my favorite speaker.  It made me realize that my weaknesses can actually help others.

So, today I challenge you to spread the Love using your weaknesses, and share what happens!  God bless you!

  1. I have so many weaknesses I couldn’t count them all. But I always remember God said, “My strength is made perfect in weakness.” I guess my weaknesses helps me to be understanding of others and have compassion.
