God’s sufficient grace has helped me feel so much better about myself and has changed my life.
I love to sing the song…
Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise
And to know thus saith the Lord
I remember a day when I didn’t know I could trust Him. I remember a day when I didn’t know how to trust Him. I also remember a day when I didn’t know if trusting Him was enough. Hallelujah, those days are over now. My life has proved that the grace of Jesus is transforming.
If doubt or insecurities ever creep back into my heart, I take my mind back. I tell myself about the times that God brought me out of mess. I remind myself of the day I looked in the mirror and for the first time in my life, I saw someone beautiful looking back at me. Never did I imagine that day would come. That was God’s grace.
Whatever my mountain is for the day, God’s grace is enough. When I am weak, He is strong. I no longer have to depend on my fallible abilities. I trust in Jesus and I win every time. There is no gambling with God. At the end of the day, I’m blessed. I’m blessed when I step back, lift my hands in surrender, and trust in…
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus
Oh, for grace to trust Him more
God’s grace makes me feel strong, confident, able, beautiful, fearless, safe, hopeful, and happy. Times in my life these words would never be used to describe me. But I yielded to sufficient grace. Sometimes I read over my blogs and think, who is this woman? Where did she come from? She didn’t exist just a few short years ago. I was baptized and spirit filled a couple of decades ago, but I got lost somehow and perils flooded my life.
Then, in the process of it all, God took my troubles and used them to mold me into something better than what I was before. The transformation has been amazing. People want to know what I did. They ask how I overcame depression. Sometimes I just don’t know what to say. I can’t take any credit or glory. I asked Jesus to take control and His grace, love, and power was enough.
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend
And I know that Thou art with me
Wilt be with me to the end
Will you trust in Jesus today? His grace is enough for you every day.
