Feeling weak, or small in a very LARGE world?

Do you feel weak or so small that this life is just walking all over you and you have no control over it?

Well welcome to the CLUB, because that sure has been me lately.

I took a heavy load of class work this past semester. I finished with a 4.0 [WOW GREAT JOB KARA] But this past semester of school was honestly a blur to me. From social media, it may have looked like it was the time of my life. Yes, I did enjoy my semester, but was it all true and a deep fulfillment?

The honest answer is NOPE, NOT REALLY!


Today I was reading about how weakness can actually be a good thing, and that it’s ok to share that we have flaws.

Ya’ll I just want you to know that I am so far from perfect!

I fall short and like to cover up that I am weak. I have flaws……{many FLAWS}, and I am human on so many levels.

Though this journey called life is too short for us to cover everything up and lie that we can do everything ourselves. Because I hate to break it to ya…. You sure can’t darlin!

There is this thing called backward thinking that the world has portrayed we need to post how great our lives are on social media, or whenever someone asks, “How are you?” you simply state “Great,” even though deep inside you are hurting more than you think anybody can understand, or has the time to listen to.

I am writing this to say it is OK to be weak. It is OK to have flaws, struggles, or pain in your life.


Because God uses our weaknesses. He invites us to admit our flaws, insecurities, and to give up on trying to control our own lives by simply allowing Christ to take control and letting his love flow through our lives.

As stated by Sara Walton in Hope When it Hurts,  “This world doesn’t need more people who seem to have it all together; it needs to see people with real struggles, real emotions, and a real hope.”

Although this doesn’t mean to go tell everyone about your struggles, it simply means that you DO NOT have to have a perfect life to be a witness for Christ.


I have been in such turmoil lately wondering and worrying about my future, what it might hold, and where I should be this summer with my career and life.

*Am I on the right track for my life?

*Am I helping others to the best of my ability?

*Am I being true to myself?

These have all been recent topics that have stumbled across my mind recently. I have found myself trying to control these situations in my life and then thinking, how are these dreams of mine even possible?

It really brings me down sometimes, though when I consume myself in these worries, I am not following the path that Christ has built for me.

He wants my worries, He wants to take control and care of my life.

I want to share with ya’ll that I have to remind myself of all of this below DAILY, because this world is tough and it can plain stink at times.


God is able. “He will do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,” (Eph. 3:20). We must believe that our creator has the power to overcome anything beyond our human imagination.

Scripture also tells us “to not be anxious in anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God,” (Phil. 4:6).

God wants us to come to HIM in full pursuit and give him our anxieties and worries that this world may bring us. He wants YOU!

Although we are not to use prayer to manipulate God.

God has HIS timing and we as humans have OURS.  This is also something that I know I need to be patient with. God’s timing may not always match up to what we have pictured in our little dream life we want to live. But there is a reason why that something hasn’t happened yet, or maybe it already happened. God has a better plan for our lives. Though we are usually so blind to His plan due to being so caught up in our own world.

So if your like me and you like to travel down the worry wart path and you find yourself so small, weak, and worthless at times, I challenge you to reflect and pray on the three verses below. Paste them up somewhere you can see them as you do daily chores. Or challenge yourself to share them with someone, while maybe even sharing your struggles with someone.


*Perfect Peace; Philippians 4:6-7

*Rest for Your Soul; Matthew 11: 28-30

*Strength, deliverance, and freedom from fear; Isaiah 41:10


Know that you are LOVED by your Creator and that it is OK to be weak at times. Do not cower or cover-up your weakness. Share it with someone who will walk alongside with you and your journey with Christ.

My new LIFE goal is to not cower from my weakness but to embrace it and God’s grace. To live and love FEARLESSLY throughout my life. To enjoy the overwhelming, never ending reckless love of our Creator.
