How to Turn Weakness into Strength

How many times have you notice your shortcomings this week? We all have them. None of us are perfect. They frustrate and even discourage us, but they do have a purpose for being in our lives. In Ether 12:27 it says,

And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.

Our weaknesses help us to turn to God. They remind us of our overall purpose here in life- to learn, endure, and return home better than ever. 

How do you turn your weakness into strength? "If they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." We have to be humble enough to turn our weaknesses over to God and patiently allow Him to make them so much more.

If you are new, every Wednesday, different LDS bloggers share their favorite scripture and why via Facebook. In each Faceboook Live video, they will also tell you about the new free printable to go along with their scripture. Be sure to like our Facebook Page so you can find out each week. Sometimes it's a poster to hang in your home, sometimes a coloring page, or even a mini booklet. Be sure to check out some of the other scripture freebies you can use after you grab this one.

Ether 12:27 is Sheena's favorite scripture. Sheena blogs over at Little LDS Things. I'm always sharing her fun object lessons and her insights on General Conference talks. Be sure to tune in today at 10AM to listen to her explain more about this scripture. Watch her video about this scripture on her Facebook page.

Attach the above tags to this week's scripture activity- crochet bracelets. As you are humble before the Lord, you let Him shape you and your weakness into something more. You go in the direction He guides you and become stronger, more beautiful, and something you may have never thought possible. The yarn represents you and your weakness and the bracelet what God can make you. 

These crochet bracelets are a fast project and great for Activity Days or a Young Women's activity. My girls quickly joined me to make a few more. (8-11 years). You can also use this as gift with a ball of yarn and printed instructions or attached to the bracelet already. If you don't know how to crochet, don't worry, Kim demonstrates in her video with the instructions.

Order some yarn delivered to your door and get crocheting!
