Crystal’s Favorite verse: “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly therefore, I will rather boast about my weakness, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore, I delight in weakness, in insults, in distresses, in persecution, in difficulties in behalf of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
