It's All Grace

I received a call last night to be the Lector for the 10:30 AM Mass today. Not a lot of prep time, but the readings for today were short. Today's Second Reading (2 Corinthians 12:7-10) struck a chord with me, especially these words:
"My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness."
At times I speculate if the only thing as strong as the grace of God is our free will and ability to say "no" to it. At times I wonder how much grace I have wasted in my life as well as saying, "There but for the grace of God go I." At times I contemplate on this lack of faith and pray to be strengthened.

I need all the help I can get.

"Lord, I do believe; help my lack of faith."
