      This is a great list. Thanks for sharing it. Personally this is my favorite verse when I need to find strength.

      1 Cor. 12:10 That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
