3 Ways Your Weaknesses Build Your Strengths

It’s Sunday morning. I’ve got the kids eating breakfast, sipping milk or hot chocolate. Music is playing in the background. Sunshine streaming across the floor. Problem is, the kids are all in their jammies and we have to leave for church in 5 minutes!

Ever been there?

In that context, my strengths (meeting individual needs and helping the kids be harmonious) aren’t acting like strengths. In fact, they’re downright annoying to my hubby who’s trying to live his strengths of strategy and focus. Right then, we have a choice to make: will we engage in tug-of-war? Or will we allow what could be a moment of weakness to press us further in to our strengths?

In these moments of weakness, three important things can happen: 

  • We can build partnerships
  • We understand true humility
  • And we can press in to our other strengths to overcome the moment’s weaknesses.

Jane Eyre said, “The shadows are just as important as the light.” Will you embrace your weaknesses – your shadows – and allow them to press you into partnerships, humility, and a greater understanding of your strengths?

“And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.'”  ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9

    Excellent at helping women realize we are not alone with our weaknesses and very encouraging! God needs us to be humble, otherwise we don't recognize HIM. These are all very good points. Wonderful post filled with great wisdom. Thanks so much! 🙂
