2 Corinthians 12 verse 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.

  I have faced many difficult times over the last couple of years, but I have faced them not alone but with Jesus with me for every step that I have taken, for every difficult decision that I have had to make, and knowing that despite my weaknesses Jesus seen me through at every turn I can not help but PRAISE HIS NAME. I still find it very hard to accept that I should be joyful despite the pain and suffering that comes in this life, but the joy that I have is in JESUS, a joy that surpasses any pain and suffering, it is a joy to know and to love the Lord Jesus Christ and to know that he loves me and you. love and God bless, Jez
