For all kinds of weaknesses

For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:8-10


  1. I read this yesterday. What an awesome (in the true sense of the word) reminder.

  2. Oh, my. This ought to be one of the most-quoted encouragement scriptures, one that we're ready to quip out on short notice to build someone up. I have a running tally hidden in my head of all the passages I want all over my house when I grow up and get married... this one definitely goes on there!
