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
