His Grace is MORE Than Sufficient… Enough for Me

The other day I had many opportunities where I wanted and could have been selfish with my time. It seemed that everyone one of my clients had an urgent issue on what was supposed to be my day off. I had to check my attitude a few times and put my grown self on a timeout, literally and figuratively. Yes, I am woman enough to say… I walked into my bedroom, shut the door and then the walk-in closet and screamed “Help me Jesus!”

Don’t get me wrong, I love assisting others. It’s one of the areas I have been graced in. However, I am learning how to find balance in it so I don’t feel like I am being taken advantage of or have overextended myself. Trust me; having healthy boundaries is a good thing.

I thank the Holy Spirit for giving me the wisdom in my communications with some of my clients/dear hearts. And for my sister for talking me off the ledge and onto the right path when I was close to cutting a few of those hearts off.

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
