Into the Beautiful Link Up~ Magic Lassos & Invisible Planes


For my birthday last week my brother, Ed, bought me a Wonder Woman bathrobe. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be Wonder Woman.  I first came across this robe a week earlier while out on a date night with my husband. My husband took a picture of me posing next to it and I posted it on Facebook. Next thing I know, the robe shows up in the mail. This morning while donning my beautiful robe and drinking my coffee I read the following verse.

If I must boast, I would rather boast about the things that show how weak I am.    (2 Corinthians 11:30)

I smiled. It sure doesn’t sound like a verse the real Wonder Woman would have been thinking about while wielding her magic lasso. And yet, I see the beauty and the power in those words.

Admitting and accepting my weaknesses seem to have a way of proceeding the most empowering times in my life. This act of acknowledgment is the magic lasso or the invisible plane. It’s the “weapon” to acquiring superhuman strength.  I can’t even begin to explain to you how it works.  I just know that each time I willingly and openly admit my limitations and my need for help, God takes me by the hand and leads me some place beautiful.

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10

    I am jealous! I always wanted to be Wonder Woman too:) I agree, when we are at our weakest, He makes us strong. An amazing irony and another example of the upside down kingdom. Blessings!

    Can’t say I wanted a Wonder Woman robe. Hulk maybe. Or Captain America. 🙂 Seriously, you make a great application. It is so important to embrace humility and God’s work in our lives and not take credit for what He has done.

    Hi Eileen. Such a great truth here. It certainly is at those times we admit our weakness and grasp onto God in His strength that we grow and abound in faith more. i always love how you write and get an important truth across. Now, no trying to see if your robe can make you fly after a cup or two of coffee, ok? lol 🙂
    God bless

    Happy belated birthday! What a cool gift idea. I had a birthday last week too! I would’ve gotten a kick out of wearing that robe, even though Wonder Woman I am not. 🙂 But your post is a perfect reminder that “his strength is made perfect in my weakness”.
