God Answered My Prayers~~His Grace Is Enough

Uploaded on Feb 15, 2011

Great is Your faithfulness oh God
You wrestle with the sinner’s heart
You lead us by still waters in to mercy
And nothing can keep us apart

So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God

Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me

Great is Your love and justice God of Jacob
You use the weak to lead the strong
You lead us in the song of Your salvation
And all Your people sing along

So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God

Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me [x2]

So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God

Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me

Your grace is enough
Heaven reaching down to us
Your grace is enough for me
God I see your grace is enough
I’m covered in your love
Your grace is enough for me
For me.

In 1980, I learned that I had Endometriosis and could not have any children. We had tried for ten years to have a baby. I came from a big family, and I wanted a big family too. It broke my heart, and I became angry, depressed, and wanted to give up. My dream of having a husband and home were crushed! My husband was unfaithful. I cried out to God for a baby, and two years later God answered my prayers and sent me the little boy, that is now thirty one and the “love of my life”. My son gave me a reason to live. He needed me. His birthmother did not want a child, and never wanted to see him. I too was terrified that she would change her mind. God blessed me with a beautiful baby boy. My prayers were answered.

BE YOURSELF~BE WHO GOD CREATED YOU TO BE!

Just as I am, Lord

BE YOURSELF

“Being satisfied and happy with yourself is a very important key to enjoying your life. Because of my background, I had many weaknesses in the area of accepting myself and being me. I was always comparing myself with others, jealous of them and their possessions and abilities. I wasn’t being myself: I was trying to keep up with everyone else.

I often felt pressured and frustrated because I was operating outside my gifts and calling. When I finally realized I could not do anything unless God had ordained it and anointed me to do it, I started relaxing and saying, “I am what I am“. I cannot be anything unless God helps me.I am just going to concentrate on being the best me I can be.”

God has made every one of us unique. He personally made you and gave you gifts, talents, and abilities. Just think about it: Nobody else in the world is exactly like you. That means what is best for someone else may not be what is best for you.

So, when you are tempted to say to God, “I wish I looked like somebody else,” or “I wish I could do this or that like them,” don’t say it. Be satisfied with whom God made you to be. Remember that He made you exactly the way He wants you to be. If you try to be like someone else, you will miss the beautiful life God has planned for you.”

PERSEVERE IN DOING WHAT IS RIGHT

 

PERSEVERE IN DOING WHAT IS RIGHT: Let people persecute you–but don’t stop doing all the good you have been doing. Remind yourself that God is in charge, and God judges us by our INSIDES, and man judges us by our OUTSIDES. Thanks be to GOD!

Your Life Is Not an Adventure But a Quest

Your Life Is Not an Adventure But a Quest.

Remember God is in charge. I try to find out what God’s will is for me, and try to do it to the best of my ability. However it turns out, that is God’s will for me.

Seven years ago, I was divorced and lost my job. I had to move out of my apartment, because I had no job to pay rent. By God’s grace, I had a loving family who took me in. I did not want to move back home at the age of 50, and I felt like a failure. But with God, my family, and my support system, I survived it. As an added bonus, from God I met the man of my dreams 3 months later, and we married. We took care of my elderly mother for 6 yrs. and he has been my saving grace. I went back to college and earned my BS degree with honors.

I was so hopeful, that when I graduated I would find a good job, and then I could help support my family.  Well, suffice to say, the economy bottomed out, and my mother passed away, and still no job! Thank God, for God’s grace, my husband has been my “rock”, and he has been there for me all along.

Conclusion: If I had not “let go and let God” have my will and my life, I could have missed the last 6 yrs. with my mother, and would never have met my husband. God is good!

My suggestion: Never, never give up! Go where God leads you.
