Sunlight streamed through the window triumphantly declaring JESUS as my victor. Recently I was watching “A Bruised Reed” presented by Joni Eareckson Tada. * Her face was all aglow and her smile shone, matching her sparkling eyes as she spoke of Christ’s grace through our suffering. God never healed Joni’s body. She is still in a wheelchair, but her faith in JESUS is solid and strong, even though she longs for eternity.
Somedays are still so hard for me, the flashbacks, the grief, the scars.
Beginning to behold the dawn.
Satan will not win this battle over my life. He cannot win. JESUS has already won, and I stand with Him, my Savior, Rescuer, Redeemer and Friend. Satan still tries to pull me down, and I still struggle with depression and anxiety. But I know I can come boldly into God’s presence. He is my healer even if the grief does not completely cease, till I am bowing at His throne.
Jesus is teaching me. If Joni the quadriplegic can praise Jesus than certainly
I can too
And so, can you.
Because His Grace is sufficient.
“Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 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. Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Cor. 12:8-10
“There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.” Corrie Ten Boom.
Much Thanks to the Lord Jesus who allows me to write and to my very loving mother who edits for me. ❤
