“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.
For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses,
insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.'
-2 Cor. 12:9b-10
"God shares His joy on His terms
and those terms call for us to in some measure
suffer as His precious Son suffered when
He was here on earth... and the union
and sweetness of the Savior just can't be beat."
