Three Times I Begged the Lord


Three times I begged the Lord to make this suffering go away.  But he replied, "My kindness is all you need.  My power is strongest when you are weak."  So if Christ keeps giving me his power, I will gladly brag about how weak I am.  Yes, I am glad to be weak or insulted or mistreated or to have troubles and sufferings, if it is for Christ.  Because when I am weak, I am strong.
