my weaknesses, his grace

“But his answer was: “My grace is all you need, for my power is greatest when you are weak.” I am most happy, then, to be proud of my weaknesses, in order to feel the protection of Christ’s power over me. I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” Lord, for someone who likes to be in control and have it all together these words of Paul are tough. I thank you for your grace, your power and protection.
