Weaknesses

These past few weeks I have had a lot of conversations with people who do not believe in God (in South Africa and via internet). I have a massive fear every time I start chatting with those people that I will say the wrong thing or that something in my life won't reflect what I am saying. I think a lot of times I try to look "good." I try to look like a good person, a reliable friend, an amazing nanny, a girl who serves whole heartedly etc. But that really isn't who I am a lot of the time.

I am full of sin and get frustrated easily. I have a hard time seeing others point of view and have messed up a lot. I am not the perfect Christian or young abolitionist who is always active at changing the world.

Yesterday I was listening to a pod cast by Perry Noble called "10 signs your an insecure leader." The quote that stood out to me was "if you preach from your weakness you will never run out of things to say." That clicked immediately with me.  Who really wants to hear from someone who has it all together? Are they even human?

It re affirmed that Christ calls me to Him, but I don't have to try and be something I'm not. God loves me right where I'm at today even with all my failures. & when I deal with those failures He is still going to love me to exact same amount. It is so comforting to rest in that. 

I am encouraged that the next time I speak to someone who doesn't believe in God and faith that I don't have to feel pressure to have it all together. I can boast in my weakness knowing the Holy Spirit will be speaking through me & with that I really will never run out of things to say!

Happy Tuesday:)
