Sustaining Grace

4 truths

You can never justify giving up.

God always has a valuable lesson for us to learn.

God doesn't promise an explanation.

God is working something good in this situation.

"His grace is sufficient"
1. God releases within us supernatural strength to keep going in the face of pain and suffering.

2. Grace ignites within us determination to keep going no matter what.

3 Grace echos in our spirit that God is with us to be our friend and supporter.

4. Grace keeps pointing us to God's goal of teaching us.

5 Grace reminds us that our father enables us to become stronger in faith and deeper intimacy.

6 Grace assures us that Gode is in control and sets limits on what we can bear.

7. Grace awakens our faith with conviction that God will turn our tough times into something good.

chastewhisper, That was really great. I have been having a hard time here lately thankyou. God has a plan and purpose in my life and excepting its not the plan I would have choose. but I also know he hasn't let me see all this without giving me the strength to get through it. Its just really quiet right now and alot of pain at times. Thanks...

His grace is what keeps me going day after day, even when i want to give up. 2Cor 12:9 "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." When I am at my weakest, it's His strength that keeps me going. He never gives me more than I can bear.

Last week, I was ready to end it all. To just give up. But, he reminded me that He was there with me. That I wasn't alone. And, he will see me through this.

I admire other people's faith and ability to believe, but just feel hollow. Every day I see, read, or hear about someone or situation where a loving, attentive G.O.D.'s action would ease pain, shame,sorrow--but that action is lacking. Even when action would positively affect that G.O.D.'s professed and devout "true believers".(I simply can't accept the kindly old father image..I was intrigued by Julia Cameron's idea of "Good,Orderly Direction,though--wish I could see it/recognize it in my life).Is this part of my Trust Issues? Are you folks ones who could close your eyes,arms outstretched,and fall back, confident you'd be caught? In my bad dreams I jerk awake,catching myself...fall and fall..no impact..catlike twisting around to land on my feet...
