But he said to me,
“My grace is enough for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me.—2 Cor 12:9 NET
i needed this reminder and hope in a desperate way Tuesday Morning, in the past 24 hours i have had the privilege of reminding two friends, His Grace IS enough for right now, in this messy hard…
i often get so caught up in looking for HIS GRACE, in aching to feel the peace and joy i know is a gift of HIS GRACE that i forget HIS GRACE “IS”. Not going to be, not coming , not could be if i trusted or surrendered enough. HIS GRACE IS enough for me. Today. Now. If i keep looking, and aching and questioning i can not surrender into the fullness of HIS GRACE already generously given for me. Read Streams In The Desert from July 5th here.
Let the words from this old hymn sooth your heart..
He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercies,
To multiplied trials His multiplied peace.
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth and giveth and giveth again.
