God allowed a thorn, a messenger of satan, to harass Paul to keep him from becoming conceited. Paul asked three times, but God would not remove the thorn in his side saying, “my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” Paul continues, saying therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weakness, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Imagine if the thorn was in your heart?
I still, for the most part, try and avoid the thorns on my journey†††nada te turbe†††jim
