All you need [298/365]

An interviewer recently asked me: 'What are your weaknesses?'
Career counselors will tell you that you need to answer this with tact. But how do you answer this in way that won't ding you but won't be a lie either. Besides, when you are trying to impress someone, the last thing they would need to know is about your weaknesses. I won't tell you what I told my interviewer but this question got me thinking.

We all know our strengths and can rattle off a dozen adjectives, but how many of us are willing to accept that we have our weaknesses too?
Fortunately, there is a 'power-up' available. In the Bible, Jesus shows us the way - Himself.
The weak on earth were His mascots. He said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness' So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses so that the power of Christ can work through me. That's why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships and persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Do you ever find you keep running into your failures or weaknesses?
It is human to be weak and frail. In time, you will notice your body and mind failing you.
But spiritually too, you will find yourself unable to keep up. Your family fails you, your spouse fails you, your job is not giving you what you really need and that is when you tell yourself 'Life sucks'.

Change your attitude towards your weaknesses and see it as an opportunity to look to God to meet the need.
Ask God to step in where you falter. 

He is all you need. Really.
