Leesy rapidly dismounts any prior organization and stirs up chaos in the activities of her older siblings – as she topples towers and eats their prized possessions.
She seeks and destroys.
But the destruction in my life does not root from chaos and disastrous messes. The greatest destruction lays in my own mind. In my thoughts.
I am not good enough. Incapable. Everyone hates me. I always fail. I do not deserve that. I annoy everyone. I always mess this up. I am invisible. I always say the wrong thing.
But when I engage in such self destructive thoughts, my heart sinks in despair. And I simply can’t divorce my mind from dwelling on internal turmoil.
I know, in the depths of my soul, that I am completely inadequate.
But God has slowly been redefining my inadequacy. My inadequacy used to be a shame. A complete failure. Consuming.
But in Christ’s redemption, my inadequacy is obsolete. Because of His great love, and the price He paid for my soul, I am treasured. Priceless. Cherished. Simply because I am His child.
In a new position of great worth, my inadequacy is celebrated by His constant empowerment.
Because of my weakness – because I AM inadequate – I can joyfully operate in His power and His strength.
He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Isaiah 40:29 NLT
