Some seasons in life are harder than others. Sometimes I feel like I’m broken… Something is wrong with me.. I need a reset. Because in this season I missed it somewhere.
But then there’s Jesus. He tells me I haven’t missed it. The ship didn’t sail… I didn’t miss the mark.
Because see there’s this grace that exudes from the hands of Jesus. This grace knew I’d be in this season and that I’d feel broken… and it gently carries me above the rising waters. The grace of Jesus picks me up and carries me when I know I can’t carry myself.
He knew I’d have this season. He knew that in this season I wouldn’t be able to carry myself through. But he knew that in this season he would get the chance to tell me something new… to show me something I desperately need to see, grace…
So in the hard seasons of life I’ll raise my white flag and lay down my pride and pick up the grace of my sweet Jesus.
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christʼs power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
