We all have those seasons where we feel perpetual weakness. One hard thing after another seems to come up. We remember the days when we were so strong, had so much energy, and seemed to accomplish so much.
It’s in these seasons of weakness that we can draw on the grace that God gives. His grace and strength are never-ending and never-failing. Just when your power has completely run out, His grace begins.
Whether you’re dealing with the loss of a loved one, sickness, financial struggles, the loss of a job … whatever it may be … God’s grace is bigger than your seemingly impossible circumstances!
If you’re having what feels like the hardest year of your life, I feel you. We WILL get through this. We will not try to be strong on our own. We will not try to survive day by day on our fleeting, human power.
I recently heard this song from one of my favorite worship artists, Martin Smith. I leave you with these powerful lyrics and the encouragement to trade in your weakness for the abundant grace God gives.
Grace By Martin Smith
It’s Grace, grace
I’m nothing without You
Grace, Your grace
Shines on me
And there’ve been days when I’ve walked away
Too much to carry nothing left to say
Forgive me Lord when I’m weak and lost
You traded heaven for a wooden cross
And all these years You’ve carried me
You’ve been my eyes when I couldn’t see
And beauty grows in the driving rain
Your oil of gladness in the times of pain
