I take no joy in your weakness, but I take great joy in using your weakness to accomplish great works…
2 Corinthians 11:30 If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.
“Oh my child, does your heart ache over the hurt you have caused to others? Is your weakness a cause of great shame and anxiety? Give me your broken spirit. A contrite heart is a gift that is infinitely pleasing to me. I take no joy in your weakness, but I take great joy in using your weakness to accomplish great works. Offer me all your weakness, every indiscretion, every trespass, all your sins big and small. Lay them at the foot of my cross. It will give me joy to remedy what your weakness has done. Confess, go your way, and pray for the grace to sin no more, but know that my mercy is limitless and that all things are possible to one who believes. I am who am. Show me your brokenness and I will heal you.”
Oh my Jesus! I fall contrite at the foot of your cross. Prostrate before you I ask you to take my sins and remedy the harm I have done. Jesus I trust in you. Jesus I trust in you. Jesus I trust in you!
