In my weakness

I have sort of a stressful morning ahead of me...and to be honest have been sitting here feeling super inadequate to do what I have been called to do (leading in worship)...most of the time I feel confident in His calling on my life...but sometimes....oh sometimes....sometimes Satan can come knocking, and I just seem to let him in the back door...baggage and all....and he usually comes bearing enough self doubt to almost do this gal I have needed to be bathed in His word tonight....I just simply love this version of one of my favorite scriptures... And so I just am praying it will comfort you as much as it has me felt like you can see...I sometimes need the AMPLIFIED version to "get it"...sort of feels like the Bible for Dummies :-)
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 (Amplified Bible)
7And to keep me from being puffed up and too much elated by the exceeding greatness (preeminence) of these revelations, there was given me a thorn (a splinter) in the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to rack and buffet and harass me, to keep me from being excessively exalted. [Job. 2:6.]
8Three times I called upon the Lord and besought [Him] about this and begged that it might depart from me;
9But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and
show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may
pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!
10So for the sake of Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak [
in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful
in divine strength).

"And whatever I do, may it always bring glory to you"
