2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, my grace is sufficient for thee: my strength is made perfect in weakness . . .

I have found that God's grace is limitless and the more I depend on him the more grace he provides. Sometimes I get frustrated at my own weakness and then I remember that in my weakness I can totally depend on him for strength and it is always the perfect strength that I need. At this moment in my life, my days are filled with many needs for his strength, the Lord is always faithful to me. I have also found that it is in those moments of weakness and in the times when I feel as though eveything is out of my control, all I have to do is whisper the name of Jesus and he is there ready to carry me through. I do not feel that God delights in our demise but he loves that fact that we depend on him so completely during the times of weakness. This is a practice we should make in our daily lives to hand everything over the Lord, whether its the kids acting up or the car breaks down, even if we feel we just don't know how we are going to make it to the next day. When I look back on my day, I am amazed at the miracles God's works for me. He can do that for you too, just cast your cares on him for he careth for you.
