That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
II Corinthians 12:10
I praise You in advance for the part these difficult things are going to play in Your good plan for us--in eventual deliverance and growth and fruitfulness. I'm grateful that in all this, the battle is not mine, but Yours...and that the final chapter has not yet been written. Thank You that these trials force me to trust You more. You're a God who acts on behalf of the ones who put their trust in You.
