"I am the vine; you are the branches. If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
John 15:5

My weaknesses are not the things that separate me from God. It is when I am confident that I can do something on my own that I find myself drifting away from the conscious awareness of His presence.

Now I understand that those things that hinder me from abiding in Him are also another form of weakness. My strengths have the potential of becoming my greatest weaknesses if they isolate me from the Lord.

When I am weak I am really at my strongest because I am depending and trusting Him instead of myself.

I pray that in everything I will surrender both my strengths and vulnerabilities to God so that I live my life in complete dependence on Him.
