His grace is enough, believe you me.Counts Forever
God of love and grace
It would be much easier to be a disciple
If I could just keep the rules;
If I didn’t have to navigate
The dangerous territories of compassion.
But You seek disciples
With hearts of flesh
And not of stone.
You seek disciples
Who are always willing
To lay aside the law
To bind up wounds.
Please God, make me one of those. Amen.
“Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward,
but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he doth
work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right
hand, that I cannot see him: But he knoweth a way that I take:
when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” – Job 23:8-10 KJV
“Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be,
ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of
your faith, being very much more precious than of gold that perishes,
though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and
glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.” -1 Peter 1:6-7 KJV
“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as
though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are
partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, and be glad
with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for that
spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your
part he is glorified.” – 1 Peter 4:12-14 KJV
