And now it’s time for
silly songs with Larry. Day 31 in our Trust Experience. Sorry, old habits die hard and veggie tales is an old habit. Plus I’m totally rambling today.
1. The Bread: Read John 17:20-26
2. The Devo: Read Day 31 in Trust Without Borders
3. The Plunge: Personal question: Is it easier for you to name your strengths or your weaknesses?
Today’s devotional talks about weakness being our greatest asset. While the world tells us to maximize our strengths and operate our lives from the position of strength, Scripture tells us to boast in our weakness. Why is this, according to II Corinthians 12:8-10 and Matthew 5:3 ?
I love the quote included in today’s devotional from Andrew Murray:
“Abiding in Christ is just meant for the weak and so beautifully suited to their feebleness. It is not the doing of some great thing and does not demand that we first lead a holy and devoted life. No, it is simply weakness entrusting itself to a Mighty One to be kept, the unfaithful one casting self on One who is altogether trustworthy and true.”
Don’t you love that? So let me ask you: What are your weaknesses? Go ahead and list them if you’d like. (I did!)
Now take each weakness and entrust it to the Mighty One who is trustworthy, true, and STRONG on your behalf. Spend some time today entrusting those weak areas to the Lord in trust.
Thanks so much for this today! My life has gotten away from me, but I must not forget it has not gotten away from God! Wow…listing my weaknesses and releasing them to God, power afresh to do that which I’m not capable on my own! I need to camp there for awhile. Terry
Hi Terry! What a joy to see a note from you! It sounds like you are in one of those busy seasons. I’m praying for you to have a calm, soul-satisfying weekend and that your heart will be renewed in the Lord. Hugs, sister! AJ

Just notice while I was downloading your prayer cards, that “E” is missing. How about “encouragement”?
