Spiritual Weaknesses Anyone?

Many of my readers are on a spiritual journey in which they find areas in their personal walk with the Lord that are lacking or not as strong as other areas. I myself admit that I am not as strong in some areas of my walk as I am in others and I want to find those areas that are weak and try to develop them into stronger, more prosperous areas. For instance my personal prayer life could be in better shape than it is and that is something that I've recently realized needs attention.

For many of you it could be prayer as well as other things such as Bible Study, Service, or Worship, just to name a few.

My question to you is this: Are you looking for the area's in your walk that need help or are you just focusing all of your attention on your strong points? If so, what can you do to strengthen those weaker areas?

If you need more Bible Study is there a study group that is available to you? Or if you need to develop a heart of a servant is there any area's in your church that you can volunteer your service to?

Anyone willing to share the area's in their spiritual walk that could use a little attention?

If you have done something like this already what did you do to improve that particular weakness?


  1. I guess this would count. One area of weakness I struggle with is maintaining spiritual accountability. You know- living out James 5:16, ..."Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed."

    It is probably good to have at least one or two other people beside our spouse with whom we can share our stuggles and weaknesses with on a regular basis, and I don't really have anyone consistently besides Chad.

    Transparency in confession both heals and cleanses the spirit so that we may be vessels who are unhindered as we allow grace to guide us and propel us upward to higher places spiritually. It not only keeps us free from certain sins, but I think accountability teamed with confession is the ultimate pride repellant!

  2. Thanks for sharing Jennifer! Accountabiity is an area that I struggled with as well but I've found that since I've started my Life Group Bible Study it has been a big help with keeping me in check and seeing to it that I am doing the right things consistantly.

    I agree with you that it is easy to assume that our spouse is a great accountability partner and that sometimes we think that is all we need but it is true that we need people outside of our marriages to encourage and call us out (respectfully) when things we do aren't in alignment with God's word.

    I really appreciate your honesty and openess to share.

  3. I have a spirutal weakness in forgiveness. Not in forgiving others, but more myself for past failures. I struggle daily with this & know its a weakness that Satan loves to jump & bounce on to take me down. I have to thank Jennifer for some awesome scripture in Psalms that I'm just holding close right now to my heart (Psalms 32:1-5)

    Encouragement from other Chrisitan brothers & sisters help so much in my weakness. But mainly what I think of - when I am weak - He is strong!

  4. I am guilty of that sometimes myself Rebecca and I'm glad you shared that. Now when I am feeling this way I can read that scripture and hold on to it.

    Thanks so much for your honesty and sharing your heart.
