XPERIENCE FROM LIFE

"And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans." Rom. 8:28 LB


Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away.  Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses so that the power of Christ can work through me.  That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.        2 Corinthians 12:8-10

IT IMPACTS EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE!

"By the grace of God I am what I am."    1 Cor. 15:10
