I had been asked to give a short devotion and a prayer at the Louisville Women’s Club, an honor that I didn’t take lightly. I had a thought about life being a box of chocolates and never knowing what you were going to get. Each day was a mystery and we needed to rest in the fact that God was going to help us.
That morning I awoke early and the following scripture was running through my head.
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12: 9 (NIV)
