Three times I begged the Lord about this, that it might leave me, but he said to me,
"My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness."
I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses,
in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me.
Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships,
persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ;
for when I am weak, then I am strong.
~2 Corinthians 12: 8-10
