His Grace is Deeper

j0401561 The kids are clinging to you and fighting with each other.  The socks are piling up and none of them match.  It’s hot out and no one wants to go out and play.  The milk spills, and the dog walks through it onto the white carpeting.  You’ve said it.  I’ve said it.  I’ve said it probably more times than you. 

I’m Done

I’m finished

I’ve had it.

I can’t take it anymore.

But I’m learning that that’s not true.  I canYou can

Corrie Ten Boom, who was a Holocaust survivor, said it so well, “There is no pit that is so deep that God is not deeper still.”  Corrie survived the horror of concentration camp life.  She witnessed atrocities around her every day, every minute.  She held on to Jesus and found that He was indeed enough for her.

To go on

to finish

to take more…

There is no end to God’s grace. 

If Corrie did it, we can too.  Our day to day issues, worries and struggles are no match to what she went through.  God promised her, and promises us that:

 He began a good work in us and will carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. “Philippians 1:6

His grace is deeper than we know.  I’m going to practice NOT saying things like, “I’ve had enough” for awhile.
