The other night I woke up in the middle of night feeling heart-broken and a sense of heaviness.  My spirit was so at unease that I decided to try to fill my time by reading, surfing the internet, and searching for gospel music videos on Youtube.  Unfortunately, nothing worked!!!

As I lay there looking at the ceiling in my bedroom and not knowing what I could do that would make the pain go away—I heard a small still voice.  The message was very simple, “God’s grace is sufficient.”  

My mind received the message and I began to meditate on the thought. I began to repeat and declare aloud for the universe to hear, “God’s Grace IS Sufficient.” The more I repeated the statement the stronger I began to feel the power of the words.  My thoughts shifted from the pain to the unlimited grace of God in my life... so did my feelings shift.

I now found myself feeling a sense of calmness.  I still felt that dull pain in my heart but no longer was it the focus on my attention.  Instead I shifted my focus to gratitude.  I truly appreciated the fact that I could pray to a power greater than myself to help me through this journey towards healing.  I appreciated the fact that I knew that I was not alone and that my pain was only a temporary part of my growth process. I appreciated the fact that I had received a simple word of encouragement (when I needed it most) that God’s grace is sufficient.

In a matter of minutes I cut off the bedroom light, adjusted my pillow, thanked God for His grace and went soundly to sleep.

God’s grace IS sufficient!

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.
