8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9 And he said unto 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.
2 Corinthians 12:8-9 KJV
Infirmities and troubles will abound,
Of this the mortal man can be assured,
And though we beg the Lord we not be bound,
Sometimes these weaknesses must be endured.
The grace of God is all you ever need,
For here sufficient lies love’s very root:
Christ sacrificed His perfect life and freed
You from both death and hell without dispute.
His strength’s made perfect in your weakness now,
For how could you survive without His grace?
Through these infirmities the Lord shows how
He manifests the wealth of His embrace.
So glory in your frailty and your faults.
The pow’r of Christ’s made known through life’s assaults.
Remember: God’s awesome grace is enough so that you may depend on Him completely.
