Our Struggles

Our daily struggles teach us to bend our knees – because we realize, through our own frailty, weakness, and shortcomings, that we are nothing without Him, and we need Him more desperately than we could ever need any other thing.

Our struggles humble us and pulls us deeper into relying on Him and His strength instead of our own.

Daily trials, big and small, make a saint’s arms clasp all the more tightly to our Saviour, our God–and that’s exactly what He desires from those He shed His blood for. He’s a jealous God and wants us to rely not on our own selves, but Him. For anything and everything we could possibly need.

He will see us through every struggle. Every time.

“On behalf of such a man I will boast; but on my own behalf I will not boast, except in regard to my weaknesses. For if I do wish to boast I will not be foolish, for I will be speaking the truth; but I refrain from this, so that no one will credit me with more than he sees in me or hears from me. Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me-to keep me from exalting myself! Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.”
‭‭{2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:5-10‬}
