Scripture at Sunrise 7.12.2017

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 of my weaknesses, so 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 12:9-10
No believer is too weak to be used mightily by God except those who are too dependent on their own strength. -Burk Parsons via Twitter
