So to keep me from becoming proud, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from becoming proud.

Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

2 Corinthians 12:7-9
Why didn't God take this "thorn" away?

What are some of the hard things in your life that God (because He loves you so much) might be using to teach you? What are you learning?
