ONE VERSE 2015

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

-2 Corinthians 12:9-

 

Too many times in 2014 I felt like I was on the verge of losing my mind. Too many times in 2014 I felt like I didn’t have an ounce of strength left to give. This year, I am over it! I refuse to let the devil have my mind and I know that God’s strength is made perfect in my weakness. And there are a ton of times that I’m reminded of just how weak I am. This year, I choose to rejoice in those weaknesses so that His strength can shine!

 

I’m gonna trust that God is more than enough and try to maintain a closer relationship with the Lord. I couldn’t make it without prayer and God’s Word. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times— prayer and the Word are the only things that allow me to keep my sanity and allow me to stay saved and sanctified!

 

I really needed my One Verse 2014 (Philippians 4:11) about being content and I am still clinging to that verse. That’s another reason I love and chose this year’s One Verse. How can I be content? How do I overcome envy or longing or anything? By knowing that GOD is sufficient! He is enough for me. He is all I need.

Besides, in Matthew 6:33, it says we are to seek first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added. Anything else is an added bonus because without Him, it’s worthless. He is sufficient. My Pawpaw Bill always said, “If you’ve missed heaven, you’ve missed it all.” I refuse to miss heaven for this world. When I cling to Him and only Him, the troubles of this world fade away and I know I can make it. He’ll see me through. Why? Because His grace is sufficient for me!
