But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 English Standard Version (ESV) I know it’s a very common verse, a classic even some might say, but I’d like to attempt to describe to … Continue reading His Strength in My Weakness
The last time I wrote on this blog, (March 5th, 2018), I wrote about waiting on God. I wrote about waiting on His timing to see if/when He would bless us with another baby, the heartache during the waiting, but ultimately how He had so gloriously comforted me through His Word during the years of painful waiting.
