My Grace is Sufficient

 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9, New King James Version)

"David's been in a car accident." Those were the dreaded words I read in an email just a few weeks before Christmas. I immediately felt a sinse of helplessness and dread. As those feelings of helplessness came over me, a sweet assurance came to my spirit at almost the same instant. "My grace is sufficient for you." Have you ever had a feeling of helplessness and then God came to reassure you with His sweet spirit? Or, you're going through a trial and felt at the end of your rope, and still, that sweet assurance came to you? Ladies, that assurance sustained me when the friend was over 5 hours away from me; and all I wanted to do was be there with him and his precious wife,  and it still sustains me all these weeks later when he's still in major pain at times. Let me assure you, whatever you're going through, He'll be there for you as well. He'll be there to sustain you when you feel like your world is crumbling. He'll be there when you feel that prayer isn't enough, but it's all you can do.

Father, thank you for the grace that you give on a daily basis. You give us just enough grace for the moment. I pray that you'll be with my readers in their trials of life. Help them know that no matter what, your grace is sufficient. Lord we love You and we praise You, Amen.


  1. His grace really IS sufficient, isn't it? I know you have many testimonies of that, and you inspire us to press on in His strength.
    Love you, sweet Jamie!!

  2. Thank you for this Jamie. My mom is in the hospital heading for a risky medical procedure this morning...She is very ill and last night I was praying for her...I wanted so much to be with her...but due to my own health, can not be. So I prayed and prayed for her...and suddenly a worship song that was playing about the sweetness and kindness of our Jesus played and this sense you spoke about; of his grace being enough, poured over me. I knew that there were no better hands but the hands of Jesus to place her into. So I did just that...and slept restfully last night, knowing that Jesus is caring for my mom when I cannot be.

  3. Well stated Jamie. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. I appreciate your transparency too. God bless you as you live in His grace.

    Love, Hester

  4. Jamie, thanks for sharing about God's faithfulness shining through David's accident. There is no doubt in my mind as to why we refer to His grace as amazing. Indeed! Love you!
