“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9&10

Hey friends! Erin here. I understand this is kind of a weird snaps topic. It’s one I’ve thought of for a long time but avoided putting on here because it is so weird and…well…personal. This past month has made we want to open this topic up though. It has been cuh-ra-zy busy and stressful ’round here lately and I’ve just been left exhausted and overwhelmed. But if there’s one thing I tend to learn over and over again when I’m overwhelmed it’s that when I am at my weakest, Christ shines through me the most.

So, we want to give you a chance to share about this to. How does Christ work through your weaknesses? What are those things in your life that could hold you back, but that Jesus chooses to use?

We want to let you know that we love all of you and are so, so thankful to be doing what we’re doing!

Love, Erin, Whit, & Melissa

Snaps for Your Weaknesses

2 thoughts on “Snaps for Your Weaknesses

  1. From Katie on Facebook: I truly believe Christ works in our weakness.

    A prime example of this in my own life is with my cerebral palsy. Having cerebral palsy, one of the things I cannot do is walk long distances.

    When I went to Rome with my church, I felt like it would be a burden to ask other parishioners to push me around Italy.

    I spoke with my priest about it. He said that Christ would use my ‘weakness’ in many ways. By asking for help, I grow in humility. By letting others help, they are able to serve God through serving me.

    That’s just one way Christ works in just one of my weaknesses

  2. Erin: As I mentioned above, a huge weakness I have right now is exhaustion and being overwhelmed. I tend to overcommit myself and try to do too much awesome stuff and as I result, I do the awesome stuff, but I am really overwhelmed in the process. What I have really seen in these past few weeks though is how Christ has been working beyond my physical strength. I had the energy and the mental strength to thrive in the ministry that I’ve been doing and I had to depend on Him for it. Not that I think we’re called to overcommit, but I believe that God will work through us even when we do 🙂
