There’s a little extra pain in my tears
A little more sorrow in my heart
The struggle is getting the best of me
Each day I’m not sure how to start
One breath at a time
I slowly move forward and pray
That I’ll see something, hear a word
That sounds different than it did yesterday
Sometimes all you want to do is fix it. You want relationships to mend, illnesses to heal and circumstances to change. You want a miracle. But a miracle doesn’t come, the relationship doesn’t mend and the illness doesn’t heal. And you are left in the wake of unwanted circumstances that seem to have no chance of recovery and your footsteps are heavy as you walk and wait for an answer. And the Lord says these are the times His grace is sufficient.
My grace is sufficient in your pain
My grace is sufficient in death
My grace is sufficient in your weakness
My grace is sufficient in brokenness.
My purpose for you will still be accomplished
although it doesn’t look the way you think it should
My purpose will supersede your desires
I’ll work this all out for your good.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.”
