My Grace Is Sufficient For You #FridayReflections

She cautiously set her cup on the table, trying to compose herself. The news was a shocker. How could this happen? Just as she was gaining strength and attempting to get back to normal, here was another set back. How could she cope? Why was this happening to her? How much deeper did she have to dig within herself to find strength. Then she heard the voice in her head, “My grace is sufficient for you.”

My Grace Is Sufficient For You

My Grace Is Sufficient For You

Yes, she quietly agreed in her heart, that indeed the grace of God had seen her through many situations. Even situations in which she had made the worst of choices, the consequences of which could be devastating. Yet, grace had brought her through unscathed. It was grace that saw her through every single day of her life. As she tried to make sense the bad news, she realized that this too was just another day in her life. Another phase. Another reality. This too was a day for her to throw herself into the arms of grace and trust that all would be well.
 “The goodness of God fills all the gaps of the universe, without discrimination or preference. God is the gratuity of absolutely everything… What else would God do? Basically, grace is God’s first name, and probably last too. Grace is what God does to keep all things he has made in love and alive—forever. Grace is God’s official job description. Grace is not something God gives. Grace is who God is.” Richard Rohr

    Beautiful post. When we have faith in God, it becomes a bit easier to gracefully accept the situations. As it’s said, with God all things are possible.

    Simply love this enthralling tale conveying limitless learning to overpower the tide or storms. The language and expression speaks in a direct manner, like a balm to the soul.

    It all boils down to that one word…. Faith.. small yet encapsules so much more:)

    Beautiful words. Very inspiring. Loved it.

    This small post is so mighty on faith and how that one thing can keep us going. So important and critical to keep going forward in this journey of life.

    You know, Corinne, I really really needed to read this post, this very moment. So, thank you so much, is all I will say! <3

    “Grace is God’s official job description” What an idea! And to know that God does it without fail, achieving a 100% in His KRA (key result areas) is equally assuring.
    My prayers with you to tide over and resurface stronger, for those around you need your shoulder to rest their heads Corinne. Hugs to you.

    I’m glad I read this today, Corinne. We find strength in adversities to sail through somehow, and today your above words shine on me as God’s grace. <3

    That’s very positive to trust that things would go well and believe in God. It is very tough though.

    Grace is really what God is all about.We are blessed to feel his kindness and grace in every aspect of our being.An often overlooked truth

    Holding on to the faith in the Almighty is one of the toughest things to do, specially when the going gets tough. However, that’s the only way to sail through life. Beautiful post.

    Trust and faith in God is all you need to get through the toughest of times if only we can hold on to it.

    Great post, Corinne, and it starts off just like I felt over a three month period earlier this year. Each time one thing ended, another was waiting in the wings. Praise the Lord for His everlasting grace that got me through, and PLEASE Lord for a more stable few months ahead! Thankful Thursdays return!

  14. At times, when we think it is all over and we could breath some fresh air, something else comes up. Something more saddening and the one that breaks us into a million more pieces happens. We just do nothing, but surrender this time. We find grace in ourselves and in all things around us. Life becomes a wide awakening. May the Dear Lord give you the courage and patience to seek him.
