God’s Grace Is Sufficient For: Me and You

It is already the third day of July, and we’re, like everyone is saying, on the halfway mark of our calendar already. Screams *yay*

This past year has been a tough year for me, especially when I’m going through a financial tsunami. (yea, it’s really just like tsunami, everything [well almost] wipes out when it comes in.) I won’t tell you in detail of how it happened, but it was due to a mistake that I made, thus am handling this “aftermath” of things happened.

6 months of struggling has really been tough, especially when no one is beside me for support. The first thing that came to my mind, was that “oh. This must be some curse that God place in me because of my wrongdoings & transgressions.” *Sounds familiar?* I’ve been feeling lousy and lonely going through all these, plus even blaming God for why He has taken one of the important elements of my life. (although of the ‘guilt’ that I mentioned earlier on). I opened a pity party with myself, saying “oh I have no friends, oh I’m just so lonely, oh who exactly knows how am I feeling” etc etc etc trash thoughts that came into my mind, and they kept bombarding me as they all are reality. I blamed God for what I have done to deserve these? Plus, I even just 2 days ago, I blamed God that I had no one to celebrate my birthday with, just passing my birthdays at home, while others are merrying outside (sounds sad eh?)

But as I was thinking about church X and Y  I attended myself (plus an online service that I just clicked on), and unknowingly, although they are both different themes that both speakers shared, these verses came into my heart:

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness,” …that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
– 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

It’s probably what He wants to tell me during these few months of pain… Although I haven’t experienced Him that much (due to my ignorance of His presence plus focusing too much of my own pain and loss), I think this is what He’s been trying to tell me (the same verse repeated on different sermons) all these while. I had an angry and bitter heart, but His grace is sufficient for me. I chose to walk away but His grace is sufficient for me. I had to suffer by myself for my own wrongdoings but His grace is sufficient for me. I am still alive and holding on because His grace is sufficient for me.

When I am weak, then I am strong.

THIS IS IT. This is going to be my personal theme verse for this year. (I had one almost every year, except last year, this year came late.)

In addition for this revelation given, I wanna say that although I don’t know what is going ahead for me…
Hard times are still ahead. I may stumble people along the way. But I seek understanding from you guys, as I can be possibly be emotional (well guys do get emotional ok) when things aren’t going alright with me. Pardon all my unnecessary comments on facebook. 😀

I am encouraging myself (or anyone of you who may need to hear this): Although I may get discouraged, angry or disappointed by all these situations, I think it’s very important to do these things everyday, to make you feel better:

  • Send endorphins. They are the happy drive chemicals produced by some chemicals from your body that is more powerful that pain killers. I have some videos that I would like to recommend you guys to watch. Watch her videos and I guarantee you laugh as I did. Check this lady out: How to be HAPPY – strategies to release your endorphins! By Amanda Gore
  • Have a heart of gratitude. This will prevent you from thinking the lack in your life and send positive vibrations in your being.

Make me strong, God!
