For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses,
insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10 English Standard Version
I got up early the Friday after Thanksgiving a few years ago when no one else was stirring in the house. I decided to practice taking pictures in black and white. Taking this candle I positioned it throughout our house to see the effect its light on our home. I didn’t care how far the light shined, but where it shined.
The candle is positioned at the intersection of two lines. Your life has its own intersection.
Where you are right now is where God wants you to shine.
Paul understood the power of God’s light shining in our weakness.
Often we want to be somewhere else rather than where we are. Today, at the crossroads of your life, is where God calls you to shine, even if it is in weakness, hardships and calamities. It might not be pleasant. You might dream of being somewhere else. But where you are is right where He wants you to be.
