GRACE AND MERCY
I pray that the GRACE and MERCY of God touches your face today and gives you the strength and hope to carry on. You can do anything through Him who gives you strength. Let Him plant the seed of “I care” in your heart. Open up to the beauty around you. Look with eyes wide open at the wonder of His creation. Allow yourself to feel something other than sadness. Let other’s love on you. Let the Holy Spirit carry you on His wings and let the faithfulness of God give you a true feeling of joy. Yes, I said JOY. You are entitled to the Joy of Christ…. not just His sufferings.
2 Corinthians 12:8-9 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am.
