Daily Word:  

2 Corinthians 12:9 but he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Be honest with your limitations so that you can experience the power and peace of letting God provide.
