Sufficient Grace~

Poland… A place of beauty and a rich history. The smells of dark coffee and freshly baked pastries seep out of the country cottages. Gorgeous men, woman and children wander through the busy town of Warsaw. Their deep set eyes scan the surroundings as they greet each other.

Last June I had the amazing opportunity to travel with Wheels for the World to Poland.

It was there that God showed me that weakness is where His strength can shine forth.

It isn’t when we are strong that God works most mightily, but in our weakness.

Not when we are brave, but when we trust Him.

Not in our strength, but His.

Not in our athletic skill, but in His ability to enable us to fulfill our calling.

Not in our eloquence of words, but by His love.

In the country side of Radom, Poland,  the understanding that God uses weakness began to drench my soul.

Wheelchair? No problem! Chronic pain? Yes, He can use that too. Past mistakes? He can handle it.

Maybe, you have some ashes within your life too. Maybe there are moments that you wish would be swallowed within the past.

Yet, God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness.

“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.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
