Ever had a day where you beat yourself up for missing the “mark” somehow, and that very day you receive a card from someone expressing how much you mean to them? I have.
Ever had a season where you feel you are falling short of your goals and deeper purposes, and you get a call from someone telling you they have watched your life and would like to glean wisdom from you. I have.
Ever doubted your abilities, feeling fearful to embrace new opportunities only to be invited to lead in a fresh way because someone fully “believes in your abilities to lead?” I have.
You feel like you deserve judgement when in comes blessing….
I find this so perplexing because I (we) can be so hard on ourselves, beating ourselves up with negative talk, worried about what others “might” think, when in all truth, we are surrounded by Grace.
Grace – God’s unmerited favor is so much like this. We sin, we fail, we disappoint and yet…He loves, He sees the good, He blesses…………
Grace is mentioned 170 times in the Bible. Wow. We must need to be reminded over and over again.
2nd Corinthians 12:9 says “My Grace is sufficient for thee…”
I know I will not always hit the mark, say all the right things, act perfectly, catch all the social ques, or make every right choice but I will do the very best I can…………and at the end of the day I will continue to be so incredibly grateful for His Grace!
His Grace IS sufficient for YOU!
