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.
