Pound Away – Close

Therefore, to keep me from becoming overly proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from the Adversary to pound away at me, so that I wouldn’t grow conceited. Three times I begged the Lord to take this thing away from me; but he told me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is brought to perfection in weakness.” Therefore, I am very happy to boast about my weaknesses, in order that the Messiah’s power will rest upon me. 10 Yes, I am well pleased with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties endured on behalf of the Messiah; for it is when I am weak that I am strong.

Pound away at me, he said. Aren’t you looking forward to meeting Paul? I suspect I am older (or at least close) than he was when he penned these words but I am no where near close to the well pleased-ness he speaks of here. But there’s hope! 🙂

I hope your weekends are pleasant, restful, and filled with holy worship.
