Grace Sufficient

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

So many burdened lives along the way!
My load seems lighter than the most I see,
And oft I wonder if I could be brave,
Patient and sweet if they were laid on me.

The Thoughts of God

Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. (Psalm 40:5)

Annie Johnson Flint has a remarkable story of her love for God and her dedication to live her life for Him during some very difficult times.  I encourage you to read Annie’s story.  Annie did not let the difficult things of life weigh her down.  She did not give up hope, she never gave into circumstances, and she always knew God would see her through.  Her poems can be found at Home Makers Corner .  And her story can be found at the following link Annie’s Biography.  I promise that you will not be disappointed by either links.  I tend to go back to Annie’s poems as often as possible and I am encouraged by her steady stand in the Lord.  She did not waver.  The poem below shares the vast thoughts of God.  I pray it encourages and uplifts you!

How wonderful Thy thought, O God!
Though poor and needy I may be,
How high, how deep, how manifold,
Thy never-ceasing thought of me!

Thou thinkest more than I can know;
Thy gifts transcend my fairest dreams;
Beside the greatest of Thy thoughts
How small mine utmost asking seems!
