💪 an unguarded strength 💪

Doing a study written by Tauren Wells at my youbible.  Looking at Peter’s train wreck with denying Christ.

Big failure.  I get it.  I have betrayed and let myself and others down many times.  💔

I was thinking about strength. What are mine?   I have always been strong, decisive, and visionary.  This has gotten me into much trouble.  I have often been callous, unfeeling and bossy to people that I should have cared for.

  I never saw this about me: until I got sick.  Flat on my back for the last several years.  Lotta time to think.  🌻

“Any strength we have that is not surrendered to Jesus can be used as a weapon against ourselves and against others.” 

“We have to guard our strengths. Because Peter was unwilling to accept the possibility of falling down, he was unprepared for his opportunity to stand up. When we admit that we are prone to failure, that our strengths aren’t strong enough to save us, we find the power to live righteously through Christ.

“Scripture says, “Take heed when ye stand, lest ye fall.”

“When sin affects our opportunities to use our strengths, a perfect situation can become a perfectly wrong situation.”

An unguarded strength is a double weakness.

  1. Hey friend. Good stuff here. Really good. The more my life has unraveled the more I see how I was not always a good friend. Too much advice. Not enough gentleness. Yeah me too

    1. Hey Emma good insight! That helps me today. 🌻
      I give too much advice as well. I really have a job to keep my mouth shut! I’m better than I used to be at gentle listening though. That’s encouraging. 🌻

  2. Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much
    time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

  3. Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template
    or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Cheers!
