2 Corinthians 10-13 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Paul is being attacked. He reminds us that he could boast about his relationship with God. In fact, he has a lot to boast about (12:1-5)! Instead, he is going to boast about his weakness (12:5). He is going to boast about his thorn in the flesh (12:7). He is going to boast about the number of hardships he has faced (11:23-27). Why? Because he understands that when he is weak, then he is strong (12:10). When he has to rely upon God, that is when he is at his best.

That should serve as a wonderful reminder to us. When we think we are strong, when we rely on ourselves, that is when we are in the most danger. It is when we are humble, when we pray, when we cry out to God, when we realize our need – that is when we are the strongest.

This may not be your cup of tea, but it’s a fun song with a good lesson!
