I don’t know why this video is suddenly circulating amongst my facebook friends—it is from 2008. Whatever the reason, I am glad. I hadn’t seen it before, and it is so POWERFUL! Not only am I reminded of the horrors of abortion, but I am challenged by this lady’s approach to life.
Who am I to pout that my body isn’t perfectly fit (that’s pretty much my fault anyway), or that I have minor health issues? Or how can I whine that I don’t have this gift or that gift that will help me shine and be successful in my endeavors to serve God. The truth is I have many advantages, but when will I be humble enough to really let God use my weaknesses to bring the message of His power to a corrupted and confused world?
Thank you Gianna for trusting God and letting Him use your weaknesses. I want to be like you when I grow up.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NASB)
9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
