My Grace Giver

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is  made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast  all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me."

(2 Corinthians 12:9  NIV)

I have often wondered about my strength, NO not my strength but HIS strength on this journey of  physical pain due to my Neurofibromatosis disorder.  I know the Holy Spirit dwells inside my heart. I know He gives me all the staying power I need to get through my days. My bodily pain has surely put a toll on my  physically being.  I have been confine to my home  with very little going out into the community.  I  have learned to rely on the LORD God and also on my brothers and sisters in Christ.

The Lord as walked me through with unwavering strength and sufficient grace, His grace.  The Lord  has given me that verse numerous times; He has been  with me for each struggle, He has walked me through  each time by His grace.  For when I am at my  weakest, He is my strength.  When I’m in pain and  get depressed, He gives me His joy to bring me up
from my low, “The joy of the Lord is my strength.”   I welcome the day I see Him face to face with His arms outstretched to embrace me saying, “Welcome good and faithful servant, and enter into my rest.”    And  I will be with Him for all eternity.

Prayer:     My Dear Sweet Lord GOD, give us grace to  accept the things we cannot change and faith that You will bring us through  when fear or doubt creeps at the door of our hearts.
Help us to remember the promises of Your Holy Word. We Praise You and Thank You for being there in our times when pain and trials come.   Engulf us in Your  Sufficient Grace.  Amen and Amen
