Isn't it wonderful when you are sharing with someone and you just feel a tiny part of God's heart for them? I felt so much love for you as I posted that comment and I thought WOW! We just cannot fathom who we are in Christ, not even a little bit. I really think if we ever truly realized how much God loves us, we would burst at the seams. These earthen vessels are not equipped to handle such magnitude. I am so thankful that you were blessed. That is my prayer!!

Oh Missy, I am so grateful for you. You have blessed many people from being on this team! Thank you so much! I try so hard, and sometimes I am disappointed in myself. God is very good at not letting me feel the emotions of defeat though. Thank you so very much for saying, "now that he has revealed this new area of work in your life, he is ever faithful to bring it to pass; rejoicing over you only the way a father can do. Rest in that beloved." I am going to write this in my spiritual journal, as I become stronger and TOTALLY surrender to God!

My prayer for you (for all of us!) is found just a few chapters before the verse you shared:

2Co 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. (NIV)

And from here:

Philippians 1:3-6 I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (NIV)

We're all such works in progress, God's masterpieces. He continues to reveal the beauty of us, day by day, and when He steps back to behold the work of His hands, he says of us: It is good.

Now that He has revealed this new area of work in your life, He is ever faithful to bring that work to pass, rejoicing over you as only the Father can do. Rest in that, His beloved.

2 corinthians 12:9

My grace is enough it is all you need. My strength comes into it's own in your weakness.

Grace, strength weakness. Three very powerful words within two sentences in the bible. My grace is enough it is all you need. My strength comes into it's own in your weakness. It doesn't say that after you read a book from the store God will help you. Nor, does it state that you must pray for an hour each day for a week, THEN Jesus will help you. It says my grace is ENOUGH.....it is ALL YOU NEED. I believe that this verse tries to make it clear to me that if I ask for God's grace he will surly give it to me. All I have to do is ask & believe. Simple right,You bet it is!!! I believe it now and I will remember it......right? Well, that is what I thought when I read it in the bible and felt God's presence. I thought, oh, I need to underline this, better yet write it on a piece of paper, and meditate on it. Well, I got so far as underlining it and writing it on a piece of paper, and I have talked about to my friend. Now I am writing about it. Mediate, how do you mediate on anything? I watch Joyce Meyer, and she talks about this sometimes, but, I have not done this. I feel that it should & will help me though. I guess I am suppose to think about it and pray about it. (If anyone has a suggestion please contact me, or leave a comment here)

There is a strong hold in my life that I am trying to change. I want to change but I have began to realize that I am holding on to it, behind my back. When you hold on to something behind your back, whatever you are holding on to, you don't want someone else to see what is un your habd. I don't want God to see that I have not completely let go of it. Because I had been doing good, I thoight that it did not have control over me. The reality is that I had losened my grip, but still holding it. I have started to pray each day that God will help me to become free. Free in the way that he has planed me to be. I have more control over my life, and God has even more control over my life, than the devil does. But it is a fight between me and him! He doesn't want to let me go. He doesn't weant to lose me. I make him feel good, doing what I know is wrong.

I have changed so much, I know I am a good person. But, I am failing at this strong hold. Please pray that I can utilize this verse that God made so plain to me. My grace is enough it is all you need. My strength comes into it's own in your weakness. Thanks so much, I know that you will pray. emoticon emoticon
