6 Word Philosphy of Life

My friend Amy tagged me today to do this meme. This was a tough one! Here's what you have to do:

1. Link to the person who tagged you. Check!

2. Post the rules. Check!

3. Share a 6 word philosophy of life Check!

4. Tag 3 other people (I won't tag anyone, but if you do this please let me know!)

So here's my philosphy (btw, I know I cheated a bit by using a couple of contractions. ;o)

When I'm weak, then I'm strong!

On Sunday morning when we had our "church service" with the kids, everyone shared what they had learned during the past few weeks. My answer was "When I am weak,then I am strong." That comes from 2 Corinthians chapter 12. Paul wrote these words:

2 Corinthians 12:7-10 (NASB)

7Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me--to keep me from exalting myself!

8Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me.

9And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness " Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

10Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

The Lord really proved this to me over and over these past several weeks, and I thank Him for strengthening me through these trials!

Great verses, especially in your current situation. I didn't tag you because I didn't want to stress you. Glad you did it though! :o)

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
