I’ve been told lately that how I have handled my marriage and how I am handling the dissolution of my marriage show a lack of strength.
I know what it took to stay put because I was trying to give my children the stability that I didn’t have growing up.
I know what it took to attempt to keep my vows when pretty much every day found me praying for an out.
That’s not cowardice. That’s not being a wimp who was afraid to leave.
I stayed out of intentionality, not of weakness or fear.
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. -II Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV
