We usually think people only love us for our strengths. We try to mask our shortcomings and failures thinking people would run in the opposite direction if they truly knew all of us. Why do we kid ourselves into thinking that we will eventually be strong in every aspect in our lives? We are made to fit together as a unit. Be it in community, friendships, family, or what have you.
A positive will attach to a negative and the bond that forms is strong. Did you ever play with magnets growing up? Did you feel the tension of the two like sides repelling each other? I am so thankful the Lord is our matching half. Our weakness connects to His strength and becomes greater than it could ever be on its own. His bond completes us. He proved just how much He loved us when He redeemed us at our weakest moment and said, “I love you and you are mine. Nothing diminishes that. Nothing hinders that. I would not love you more if you were a millionaire and I would not love you less if all you offered me was your heart. I love you, period.” That is the Love He is pouring out on us today. He invites us to bring our weakness and what we feel will push Him away. Bring it to me. Bring it all. Lord, we lift our hearts to you today. They may be in pieces, bleeding, wounded or just in need of another dose of your love. However we are we come to you today. I ask that we take a minute to bring our being to you and not just our needs. Lord, I lift my heart to you today. We want to fall so desperately in love with you that we can bring our weakest part to you unashamed and know you still love us. If we have forgotten that I ask that you will remind us.
2 Corinthians 13:4 “For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.”
