Romans 5:3-5 And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; • and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; • and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

2 Corinthians 12:9,10 And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness."
