Grace and Peace

MY NEEDS:

There are two things I need in my life right now. Only two. With these two things I will get through these difficult circumstances with at least a measure of victory.

Need #1: The ability to meet this situation head-on with some wisdom, some strength, some composure. I feel so completely inadequate, so frustrated, so hemmed in on every side. I simply cannot do it!

Need #2: Some relief from the pressure that is being exerted against me as I struggle with this issue. I am almost a basket case. I react to every little irritation that comes my way. I just really don’t know how much longer I can take this stress!

Just those two things, Lord, just those two.

MY ANSWER:

May you know more and more of grace and peace as your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord grows deeper.
2 Peter 1:2 phillips

GRACE: Gods power freely given to me to meet my circumstances.

(Provision for Need #1)

PEACE: Resting in Gods GRACE.

(Provision for Need #2)

Oh, Lord, I see! They’re mine for the taking! These two things that I’m begging for, which I need so desperately in my life, are available to me as I spend time with You, getting to know You more deeply and more intimately. You, my Lord, are my answer.

Now, I should have known that. . .
