The Bible tells us that it is when we are at our weakest, most vulnerable and desperate state that He can mold us into something strong. Like clay, if we are too hard and strong, we cannot be molded. If we are subtle and movable, we can be molded and changed into something useful. He cannot fix what's not broken. He cannot give confidence to the prideful. It is in Him we will can boast for making us strong in our weaknesses.
