In Weakness Shall We Go
Throughout Corinthians Paul defends his apostolic ministry despite the many hardships he has encountered. Here in chapter 12 Paul declares that God's power is perfected in weakness. Paul is therefore able to receive suffering as a gift, seeing it as the fullest expression of following in the footsteps of the master. In the journey of mental health, we sometimes long for quick fixes and relief so that we can get on with life. What would it look like to receive our brokenness as a gift to offer back to the world?
