I was reflecting this morning on my journey of faith throughout the years. I came to Christ when I was 15 years old and I never could have imagined the opportunities, places, people and experiences I would have over the years. As I reflected upon my life I came to the conclusion, in the good, the bad and the ugly, God’s grace was always big enough, strong enough, enduring enough to cover, restore, redeem the joy and sadness, the struggles and successes and I realized I am happy with my life.
The reality is life has not always been pretty and I have had my fair share of hardship and crushing disappointments. I have made bad decisions which left me thinking my life was over, my family destroyed. Yet as I sit her reflecting on this journey of faith I realize Jesus has always been with me, He has never left me or forsaken me, He has been my rock, He has been the joy of my salvation. His grace has seen me through.
My dear sisters, no matter where you find yourself today, know that God’s grace will see you through the years, the opportunities, the places, people and experiences whether they are good, bad or ugly. When given to God, he makes all things work together for good for those who love Him because His grace truly is sufficient.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
