Our Weakness Makes God Happy

"How essential is it for us to be broken if Christ is going to be our strength?  When I am weak, I am strong.  Not 'when I am cured' or 'when I am successful' or 'when I am a good Christian,' but 'when I am weak.'  The human experience of weakness is God's blueprint for calling attention to the supremacy of his son.  When miserably failing people continue to belong to, believe in, and worship Jesus, God is happy."
