“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”
2 Corinthians 12:9
Have you ever read a scripture and tried to view it through someone else’s eyes? That’s what happened this week when I read this verse.
I imagined a lonely woman, struggling with rejection and a lifetime of poor decisions.
I seen a woman, wrestling with an addiction that has been kept quiet for years because shame has her cornered and she feels there is no way out.
I seen a young girl who is battling between right and wrong. So passionate about the kingdom of God, but attracted to the things of this world.
The storyline could be anything.. but one thing remains the same – His grace is enough. No matter the situation, His grace will always be enough. His blood still works, and has the power and ability to wash your slate clean.
Jesus, I’m so thankful for your blood today that still flows and washes me clean. I’m thankful for grace that is always extended to me, even though I am undeserving. Help me to live a life that understands grace.
