Ask the parents of the assassinated singer.
Ask the friend of a massacred party-goer.
Ask the dad of a two year old, pulled out of sight by a scaly seven foot reptile at Disney.
Tragedy upon tragedy.
This life is full of them. You may be in one this moment. You could be at the end of your proverbial rope. You might be asking yourself if the struggle, the pain, the loneliness, or the guilt will ever pass or if its worth the hardship.
The cry of the human heart to an almighty God is for relief — for peace. God has given you more than you can handle.
Yet — as macabre as it may seem — it may be exactly where God wants you. Low. Destitute. Unable to withstand another breathe without first, breathing his.
When life carries you to places such as these, He whispers,
“My grace is sufficient for you because my power is made perfect in your weakness.” 2 Cor. 12:9
It is the same grace the angel announces to Mary. It is the same grace that describes Jesus. It is the same grace that is given and not earned.
It is at the lowest, when God brings you the highest. He is all you need to get through this thing called ‘Life’. He is your anchor, your foundation, your guide and your peace.
God will give you more than you can handle because it is in your surrender that He gives you your victory.
