Thorn in My Flesh…

My cry, Abba, please please… take this anguish from me…

But I know it is for me to boast of You and You alone. Help me delight in being weak that You may be strong, that I can be totally bankrupted so that You can show me a totally better way.

9 and then he told me, My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness.

10 Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size – abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (The Message)
