dhr.  M.G. Keijer (Micha)

Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh,  a messenger of Satan,  to torment me.  Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.  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.  10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight  in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships,  in persecutions,  in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.  Corinthians 12:7-10
