Perfect in Christ

1 Jun

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my

035power is made perfect in weakness. 

I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses,

039

that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 

For the sake of Christ, then,

069

I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities;

for when I am weak, then I am strong.”  2 Corinthians 12: 9-10

When we suffer, when we are weak, we are tiny before God—the littlest that we can be.  I prostrate myself in humility before Christ, knowing that my loved ones, myself, we are all so broken and in need of so much healing—His sacred heart pours out such love and mercy.  So freely and so abundantly.

This world is passing.  This is not what it is all about.  The anxiety, depression, hatred, sickness, hurt, despair—they will all be gone and then we can live, fully and beautifully and freely.

My heart swells with love and anticipation.

We are made perfect in Christ.
