Jesus Himself strengthens your weaknesses ..

“Jesus Himself
strengthens your weaknesses,
tones down your excuses,
brings your under-normals up to normal and makes your above-normals not seem over-powering and intimidating,
refines what is crude,
helps the rigid to relax,
helps the over-polished to loosen up,
helps the lowly born to get “class.”
Some people don’t want to fix their eyes on Jesus; they imagine that would make them religious freaks. Listen:
Jesus Christ is the only One Who is perfectly whole and healthy and balanced and normal. And the more you fix your eyes on Him, the more whole and healthy and balanced and normal you will be.”

-from p.23 of “Fix Your Eyes On Jesus” by Anne Ortlund.
