There room days i walk v where I have hazy vision. I miss what God is act all around me since of mine to-do perform that have piled up, my questions that walk unanswered and my dreams that are not finished. It is easy to shed sight that the Prize, Jesus, once our priorities get mixed up and we begin to praise the produced instead of the Creator. It appears that in a minute we easily become distracted, discouraged and disillusioned through the things of this world. Every one of which don’t even compare to His matchless worth! 

The mr graciously reminded me freshly that in order because that Him to perform a good work in us, we have to be content v our shortcomings, discovering that the is viewed as solid in ours weakness. (Read john Piper’s post on no wasting our weaknesses!) For rather a while now, I have lived trying come downplay my weaknesses and also focus on my strengths. The is frequently our weaknesses that keep our strength’s from being seen. What if identified our weakness to ours Perfect God and permitted Him to carry out His occupational in us? the is then that us won’t end up being disillusioned when things don’t go our method and us will view things much more clearly.
