1 Corinthians 2:3 - I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling.
You tried to do something simple, but your body was too weak to complete the task. You get angry. You feel like a failure. You feel weak and feeble. All you can think about is how you let everyone down. If you want to change your mood, you need to change what you’re thinking. Your weakness can be turned into your strength. You’re failure can be turned around to a place where you can learn to do life differently. Your anger can be turned into a feeling of fulfillment as you share your story with someone else who needs encouragement in their weakness. Try to focus on what you can do. It’s okay if you need to ask someone else to complete the task you were trying to do. Maybe it could be an open door to developing stronger relationships with others. Do you ever feel like a failure when your body is weak and unable to complete a task? Do you believe you’re always letting everyone down? Let’s see if we can turn that around. Join the discussion.
