What is my Weakness?

20 Sep

As one who teaches college students I often refer to strengths as the things that go well and limitations for the things that do not go so well. I try not to use the word weakness. I do admit, thought, that everyone has strengths and weaknesses.

What are mine?

Last weekend it was a bag of warm donuts we bought from a food truck. Hot fudge sundaes are another. Dogs are a weakness as is the underdog–you know, the one who struggles sometimes just to keep up. All these things tug at my heart strings and my appetite!

My weaknesses are the things I fall for almost every time. They are hard to resist.

Of course I have other weaknesses. I am not good at math, I am below average as an athlete, I sometimes fall short of a clean house…need I go on?

When God made me, though, I was perfect–perfect in God’s eyes. God ordained my gifts and talents and my strengths and limitations. It became my job to understand all this for effective living in the world I navigate. Sometimes my weaknesses are funny and sometimes they disappoint me. I believe God would have me be an accepting soul–accepting of all I have been given with no time to mourn what I do not have, even in the sphere of talents and abilities.

I love God. I want to please God. I want to use my strengths to prosper the beloved kingdom. And should I fall short, it will be fine as I am aware another opportunity will soon be at hand .

Thanks be to God.
