Perfect Weakness

2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: 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 on me.

Perfect Weakness

I asked the Lord to take this thorn,
Remove it from my flesh.
He said, “My grace is good enough.
Each morning, it is fresh.
My strength made perfect is displayed
In weakness that you bear,
Allow my strength to carry you
And all your burdens share.”
Most gladly, then, you’ll hear me boast
In my infirmity,
That Christ and all His glorious power
May firmly rest on me.
For though I may not understand
The reason for my pain,
I know whatever God allows
Is for His kingdom’s gain.
So I will boast and glory in
My pain and weaknesses
For in the midst of all this pain,
I know my Savior is.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney

    His strength is always awesome. I’ve seen it is little things and big things. Over a decade ago when we faced the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, I saw His strength and grace working, sometimes hourly. I discovered that his grace and strength were renewed each morning as I got up and realized that I was still alive. His strength and grace were bigger than my pain.
