my favorite paradoxes

1) I lose my life to gain Life.

I love that when I surrender my life entirely to Christ, I gain real, true life in Him.

2) Strength through weakness.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

3) When I give in to my intrusive thoughts, they lose their power over me.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy’s premise is a simple one, and though it seems backward, it works.  My life is proof.
