His Grace is Sufficient

We made it through another year. I don’t know about you, but for me just getting through the year was an accomplishment in itself. I’m proud to still be standing, still be writing, and most importantly still be praising God. I made a simple mistake at work that was pointed out today. It’s almost 10 PM and hours later I am still beating myself up over how I could have missed it. The answer is really very simple, I am human. People all around me make mistakes everyday and I just ignore them, but when I make a mistake I put myself through hell. I have all kinds of grace and forgiveness for others, but very little for myself. Why is that? It caused me to reflect on all I have been through over the past year. I’ve spent a lot of time beating myself up over the mistakes I’ve made. Silly girl, God had already forgiven me. His grace covered me so there was no need for me to continue to punish myself. “[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1

I had to smile tonight as I recalled 2 Corinthians 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” His grace is enough!!!! What are you carrying that is covered my His grace? I’ve been carrying a lot, but as we cross into 2020 I am laying it all at the cross. I’m not taking that baggage with me. His grace is sufficient. That means it is enough y’all!!!! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
