learning | when i claimed the word "strength" as my word for the year, i had no idea what God was going to do with it. it turns out that in order to find godly strength, i'm having to confront my weaknesses head on (ouch) and admit my complete and utter dependence on the Lord. and then i come to the realization that my strength comes from him. my relationship with Christ, my reliance on His grace, strengthens me. ugh it is hard. but i'm learning. i am so incredibly weak on my own.
