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 YouYes, 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
