When I am weak, then I am strong

It was on a Saturday morning, keeping up with routine clean-up around the house. Nothing exciting but I love sparkly shine, spotless clean look of my house. My very helpful fly-swatter left a dirty spot on my ceiling. I was washing off the stain with sugar soap. It was starting to look OK and I was pretty happy about it.

I continued and within a second, a drop of this solution fell into my eye. It started to itch. It persisted for few hours. I felt pain in the corner of the eye, spreading further down close to my nose. I was really scared. I washed my eyes with fresh water many times. It was the day our guests were coming home. With limited time left, I wanted to finish off preparing meals and some more home chores to go.

Pain and itchiness in my eye bothered me, just then I remembered only these words ” For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10)

I prayed thanking God for His all-sufficient grace for me. I prayed to God to help me continue my tasks even when I am weak. God Almighty by His abundant provision of grace enabled me to finish off my tasks. Also, pain cleared off in sometime. Grateful to God for protecting my eyes and healing.

May the grace of Lord Jesus Christ be with you all!
