Your Grace is Enough
This has been one of my favorite songs since I first heard it, and it's so true.
As you know, I've been on one of my busy runs, to where I haven't even really been able to update on here. Earlier this morning though, I was able to go to breakfast with Bob, and we had a great time just talking and laying out some pipedreams. It's funny because we're both so incredibly busy, that we get tired and it becomes a struggle just to keep up with all the things that need to be done today, let alone the things you'd like to do today. So, we sat, talked, and ate...we even sat and ate inside, regardless of the countless things we had to still get done before time runs out. And I know for me, somehow, in that time, the things I had to get done could wait, and didn't need to be on my mind. We then went back to his room so I could print something off for youth, and had a very small time of worship and prayer, and then went back to the day.
It was awesome though. It was so refreshing, and provided the clarity in my mind actually needed to accomplish anything. So I had this list of things to do before 3 today, and got a late start because of breakfast, but amazingly, I went home, started working on things immediately (while listening to ten sheckel shirt on my ipod), and am now finished, and have a whole hour and 20 min. before I have to start picking kids up for the conference. So, here I am updating my blog shortly, and then I will have the next hour or more to read God's word, and let him refresh me even more than he already has. He knows I'm going to need it for this weekend! LOL!
Anyway, God's grace really is enough. And once again, I am reminded of the importance of rest and refreshment, especially the kind that only my Father can provide.
I love you Lord, more than I could ever begin to speak. Your truth resounds deep in my soul, and refreshes my spirit. And your spirit leads me throughout this mess called life. Your grace is enough. To overcome my shortcomings, to bring peace to my chaos, and to constantly bring me closer to you. I love you. You are good.
Please show yourself to these kids as we separate ourselves from our familiar surroundings, and committ three days to fun and knowing you. Show yourself so bright, that we become blind to the pressures and attractions of this world, and love nothing but you. By the power of Your son, and the authority you have given us, I ask knowing that you will give anything we desire according to your will, that You come even stronger than we've been seeing you. That you would break through in a mighty way in our lives, revealing and forgiving sin, destroying shame, and burning your mark upon our hearts. That we would burn with passion to live for you, and that nothing else could ever take the place of you in our hearts. I love you Lord. Answer my prayers and change your people. In the name and power of Jesus, we agree.
