About the Author

I live in sunny California, yet I often wonder what it would feel like to live in a farmhouse on a big plot of land with nothing but fresh air and room to run. For now I am content with the business of life in the suburbs of Los Angeles....

  1. Thank you so much for this. I prayed for help and hope in dealing with the same thing the other night, and you’re posting this is truly an answer and a miracle. Thank you, and thank YOU.

  2. Since I’m not a big fan of feeling weak, I always need this reminder. I love the quote: “For when I am weak – Deeply conscious of my weakness, then does the strength of Christ rest upon me.” (Wesley) I want the strength of Christ to rest upon me, even if it means being weak. Thanks!

  3. What a fantastic post! Truly! Beautiful worship sprawled right out there–such truth in the hard-telling and bending low to reach the gift. Truly, it’s your worship and you honor Him in the way you share.

    Rich blessings as He leads you ever closer to His heart, sweet Shauna.

  4. It is like you are living my life and took my feelings to paper. Thanks for so eloquently giving me a place to output my worry. It is nice to know I am not alone in these feelings, and I am so thankful I have Lord who knows what to do with them and beyond.

  5. Love it, Shauna! What a lovely post. I feel weak so often. You have inspired me to embrace my weakness, so I am more available for God’s use. Thank you!

  6. I know this verse so well. I have to lean on its truth again and again and again. I so understand each word you shared here. That is so me, too. Thank you so much for your vulnerability and the strength in Him you invite me into through your beautiful modeling of saying ‘yes’ to Him.

  7. Wow – it is like you got in my head and wrote this for me. Thank you. Brave words, and I do appreciate them. Your encouragement is beautiful.

  8. Good post Shauna. I have phobias/weaknesses. It is good to know that God is right there with us in the midst of our weakness making us stronger so we can help others.

    Great encouragement!

    God Bless ya!

  9. Thank you Shauna

    I struggle with this minute by minute. Your words and scripture seeped into my soul, spirit and mind . πŸ™‚

  10. This is great. Your words are so real and so helpful. We spend so much of this life trying not to be the weaklings that we are, and this is a good reason to just rest in him and be clay.

    Well said. You are brave!

  11. It is so easy to let the bring-me-to-my-knees weakness overcome us. But you are so right, it is those weaknesses that give us strength in Him, if we would just open our hearts and let Him give us strength. I think sometimes I feel like it is easier to simply let the weakness take over rather than reach out to Him. I love how you put it, that you can be a tool for His power through your weakness. Such beautiful words to remember and engrave on our hearts!

  12. Needed this so much today. My biggest weaknesses have been more apparent than ever over the past several weeks, and I’ve been having a very difficult time with it. Thanks so much for the reminder that those weaknesses are where God’s best work comes into play πŸ™‚
