His Power is Made Perfect

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”  2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NIV)

First, let me say, I praise the Lord for His kindness and mercy. I am not complaining; I’m explaining. I chose this passage from 2 Corinthians because my back is out. I cannot walk except bent over and in extreme pain. I managed to bring my ortho-appointment from Thursday to Tuesday evening, but between now and then, wow!

Some may blame God for pain. I do not. God is not about pain, or injury, or loss. He is all about love and wholeness. He has blessed me with the opportunity to write the Glo Magazine serialized novelette for January – April 2015. Praise the Lord for His kindness. He has given me the opportunity to sign the expanded novelette into a full novel at Tapestry at the end of April. Praise the Lord for His goodness. He will either let me walk into the Coliseum on April 24 or wheel my way in. Know for sure, it is His glory that will shine, for He is strong and made perfect in any adversity I may suffer. Praise the Lord! Let us pray:

“Praise to the Lord God, for you are perfect and you are made strong in my weakness. Holy, holy, holy is your name. In this Holist of all weeks of the calendar, I will sing of your great miracles of crucifixion, death, and resurrection, and not dwell on my own needs. Forgive me when I complain, forgetting that I have your amazing love. Let me share your love this week, and only love. In the name of Jesus, your son and my redeemer, I pray. Amen”
"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine.”
