"Your weakness is designed to open you up to My Power. Therefore, do not fear your limitations or measure the day's demands against your strength... When I allow difficulties to come into your life, I equip you fully to handle them." (141)
To me weaknesses and difficulties are kind of like miniature doorways. Doorways that cause me to have to kneel down and slowly crawl through, in order to get to the other side. And what's on the other side? A spacious Son-lit soul in a peaceful mind-scape that embraces, encourages and glorifies God. How is this possible? Jesus said, "I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." (John 10:9).
Some doorways are more like long, dark, enclosed thresholds, silent and suffocating. As I slowly inch my way along, in the midst of the crawl, I am surprised to discover hidden tools that equip, assist and sustain me. Tools I would have missed, if I had not been on my knees! These tools are not easily uncovered because they are camouflaged in challenge. With each tool, I discover more power, more strength, more insight. While this is not my favorite journey I know Christ sustains me and I do like the end result...
