Has anyone out there other than me been going through some tough times lately?
I know I have. I've been dealing with some things that have caused me a lot of
worry concern. The enemy has wanted me to worry and worry about these things, and a couple of times I've given in to that temptation. 🙁 But not for long, because Papa God's grace has come alongside me and lifted me up. Each time I've worried, He has helped me stop that and return to His rest again. His grace is sufficient.
I've also been working on some tough projects at work. (I do work a full-time, corporate job.) These projects have not been my idea of a good time. But nevertheless, Papa has seen me through, and my days at work the last few days have been really good days… because His grace is sufficient.
In other areas, I've been over-committed and over-booked and “over” everything. I have been working on some projects that I felt called to work on, and they have turned out really well. But I've been so tired. Nevertheless, I woke up this morning after not very much sleep, and I was in perfect peace, perfectly rested, perfectly calm, and very thankful. All because His grace is sufficient.
