ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Your Grace Is Sufficient


When I am faced with failure
Yet I know how hard I’ve tried…
When worry washes over me
Like some terror toting tide…

When ravished by rejection
And loved ones seem indifferent…
When sickness slips in unaware…
Lord, Your Grace is sufficient.

When loneliness lurks everywhere
Even in a crowded room.
When memories roll down my cheeks
And daylight comes too soon.

When it’s always raining in my heart
When, in reality, it isn’t.
When empty arms echo a loss
Lord, Your Grace is sufficient.

When Satan taunts me with a sin
Your shed blood’s put behind me.
When I forget just Whose I am
Then, dear Lord, please remind me.

When life lets go of that last breath
And I am not resistant…
When at last I stand before Your Throne…
Lord, Your Grace is sufficient.

~~Dedicated to Sally~~

~~Author’s Note~~
When we became Christians, God did not
promise us a rose garden…instead Jesus
told us it would NOT be easy.
Following Jesus is easy when life runs smoothly...but
our true commitment to Him is revealed during
trials.
Jesus assured us that trials will come to His followers (John 16:33).
Discipleship demands sacrifice... and Jesus never hid that cost.
But His Grace is always sufficient to see us through!


2 Corinthians 12:9
Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord
three times that it might depart from me.
And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you,
for My strength is made perfect in weakness."
Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in
my infirmities, that the power of Christ
may rest upon me


John 16:33
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me
you may have peace. In the world you will have
tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome
the world."
