6 weeks down. 6 weeks more to go; or to be precise, it’s 39 more days. It’s been 44 long days, and i’m still keeping the count. Who knew i’d come this far??? Not me, at the very least. Well, but i have, and i just need to keep it going and sustain it. Surely i can do it, if only i give myself that chance. It’s never easy, but i have to stop fighting it, and just go with the flow.
On behalf of this man i will boast,
but on my own behalf i will not boast,
except of my weaknesses.
Though if i wish to boast, i shall not be a fool,
for i shall be speaking the truth. But i refrain from it,
so that no one may think more of me
than he sees in me or hears from me.
And to keep me from being too elated
by the abundance of revelations,
a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan,
to harrass me, to keep me from being too elated.
Three times i besought the Lord about this,
that it should leave me; but he said to me,
“My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses,
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 Corinthians 12:5-10
