My Grace Is Sufficient For You… Part 1

Photo by Wendy van Zyl on

There are some things in your life you’ve been asking me to take away so you can be free and carry on with life unbothered. These are some of the things my servant Paul struggled with, but it never stopped him from serving me, living and accomplishing great things- through my spirit! You keep forgetting that you operate through my spirit not by your might or power and so, often you feel drained and inadequate because you believe in yourself, human ‘power’ rather than me and my power! I called you to be my vessel for me to work through, a witness to carry testimonies.

You yearn for a problem-free life so you can cruise through easily but challenges build your faith and character, it shows you your strengths and even more beautiful it keeps you closer to me. It teaches you new ways to pray and to care for your neighbors.

I let Paul stayed with that thorn to show him that he is still worthy and complete before me! That he still matters regardless of what others have to say and despite his situations, that I still love him without end! To teach him to love and accept himself and others as is! To show him that no amount of mistakes or setbacks could keep him from fulfilling my purpose. That he is limitless with me and nothing can stop him from reaching higher places; no sicknesses, deformities, flaws, imperfections, strongholds.

I let him stay with that thorn to show him that I am his strength, his joy, his peace! All that he needs is within me! That he should not lean on his own understanding! I am God, and I can do all things!I allowed Paul to stay with his thorn to be an example to you and just as my grace brought him through to be the radical son and servant he was, I will be the same with you! So take pleasure in your thorns, your weaknesses because when you are weak, then you are strong.

Meditation: 2Cor 12:8-10

Hello, my name is Stephanie! It is my desire for souls to know Jesus personally; To be freed, uplifted, affirmed, and healed through our Savior. Know that you are loved so much! You have so much worth! You ’belong’ even if the world rejects and sees you as nothing! Despite what people around you, or even what your thoughts say about who you are, Jesus's truth is all that matters, and you are precious to him! Here is a bit of my story! I've been oppressed and ’held captive’ in my own mind for many years! I've struggled with depression for over 10 years. I had low self-esteem, not knowing my own worth. I chased after love, affirmation, attention, and a need to feel wanted- in relationships, to finding fulfillment in things. I didn't know how to love myself or how to receive love! I was sad most of the time to the point where I contemplated suicide twice. Deep inside, I felt a little girl full of joy, harmony, and peace who wanted freedom, and to live a fulfilled life; she was trapped inside. In late 2014 Jesus literally called out to me... and told me I would be okay. I committed my life to him in 2016. Since then, so much has happened! I've been finding shelter under his wings, and my mind is continually being renewed by his truth spoken to and about me. I have found and is still amazed by his perfect, unconditional love for me that follows me daily. I have found a secured relationship that attends to every area of my life. My journey started out rough, but it is BEAUTIFUL! It gets rocky and uncomfortable at times, but it is one filled with lessons, wonder, and crazy peace! It's apart of our walk. I am still healing (I view it as a life long process) some days I take a step forward only to take two backward but I now know to not depend on my strength even during healing as I am never alone. There are also many that I am unlearning and detoxing from my spirit that I grew up learning about. I have opened myself to allowing God to use me as I am, as an outlet to reach his precious ones. The purpose of my blog is to encourage a sincere and intentional relationship with Jesus! To help strengthen our faith and walk in him. To heal, uplift, and remind women of who God says we are. To walk in his identity- in hopes that you will know without a doubt that you matter much more than you can understand! I openly share my testimonies and personal experiences. I mean, it's a bit easier to speak and share from experiences. I firmly believe you will be blessed! Find yourself, find your path, and embark on this beautiful journey of life resting in God. Love, it's perfectly okay to be authentic- about where you are in every area of your life- in a world that forces us to mask our emotions and ’put the best forward, so people can ”see and think” we’ve got it all together.’ It's okay to NOT have it all together. Be true to yourself; this is an important step in being completely honest with our Lord.
