Verse 10 really struck me "That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in difficulties. FOR WHEN I AM WEAK ,THEN I AM STRONG."
I picture the enemy of our life throwing all kinds of darts in our direction and if we let God, He makes them not hurt so bad. So I turned the darts into balloons. They still have what was intended but God makes it able to bear.
We just have to open ourselves up to the LORD and He will make us STRONG.
