Jennifer and Matt were both diagnosed with bronchitis today. Jen is understandably upset by another setback. Thinking about her circumstances this evening, this scripture immediately sprang to mind:
I begged the Lord three times to take this problem away from me. But the Lord said, “My grace is all you need. Only when you are weak can everything be done completely by my power.” So I will gladly boast about my weaknesses. Then Christ’s power can stay in me. Yes, I am glad to have weaknesses if they are for Christ. I am glad to be insulted and have hard times. I am glad when I am persecuted and have problems, because it is when I am weak that I am really strong.
2nd Corinthians 12:8-10
No commentary necessary. What a powerful, reassuring passage. Thank you for your prayers for a quick recovery and for Jen to be encouraged knowing God's grace is truly all she needs. It is all any of us TRULY NEED.
