We are made perfect through weakness – Your Grace is Enough!

“I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 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. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:1-10

Happy Sunday!  Today’s verse from Pastor David’s sermon at the New Church of Peachtree City (really ready for a new name!) is above.  Great verse, great message, God, Your grace is enough and I find strength in YOU through my weaknesses.  Your grace comforts us in times of abundance and of famine.  Again another song came to mind – you will see it below.  (Who knew so many songs came from scripture – haha – but really I love when I song pops into my head – really solidifies the message for me for the day/week as I keep singing it!)

Another PRAISE for today.  The New Church of Peachtree City, GA is has now been officially accepted into the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians as of May 1st 2013!  This marks the end of a ton of work by many and the BEGINNING of so much more!  Big thanks go out to all who made this possible and looking forward to the FUTURE more than ever!  A picture from the packed house at a celebratory brunch this AM!IMG_2846

Have a blessed week, Happy Cinco de Mayo, and God Bless!

Your Grace is Enough
Chris Tomlin

Great is Your faithfulness oh God
You wrestle with the sinner’s heart
You lead us by still waters in to mercy
And nothing can keep us apart

So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God

Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me

Great is Your love and justice God of Jacob
You use the weak to lead the strong
You lead us in the song of Your salvation
And all Your people sing along

So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God

Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me [x2]

So remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise
Oh God

Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me

Your grace is enough
Heaven reaching down to us
Your grace is enough for me
God I see your grace is enough
I’m covered in your love
Your grace is enough for me
For me
