Sufficient Grace

I'm pretty sure I've quoted these verses on my blog before, but they've been on my mind again tonight as I consider, 'Who am I?" and think about the many, many things I do not know or understand, and the tasks I am called to that I don't feel equipped to do. This verses remind me that it's not about me and how equipped I feel, it's not about what I have to offer God, it's what He has offered me by His grace. It's about His power, which is made perfect in my weakness.

'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. 10 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.' 1 Corinthians 12:8-10
