What 5 things are good in my life?


Life with God is an amazing adventure! Living adventure to the FULL is all about life with Jesus!

My grace is enough; it’s all you need.

My strength comes into its own in your weakness.

Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become." (1 Cor. 12:8-10 MSG)

God woke me up with this verse. "My grace is sufficient, My power is made perfect in weakness." (1 Cor. 12:9 NIV) I like to read the Message because of the clear, everyday language that it uses. In this passage Paul is talking about his weakness, and how he is actually thankful for his weakness, because it caused him to focus on God's grace and strength.

We can ask ourselves:

What is my weakness? or limitation?

Do I focus on this?

Do I invite God and His power into this weakness?

Most of us are so aware of our weakness. God doesn't want us to try to hide our struggles from Him. He wants us to invite Him into them.  Paul says here,  "I just let Christ take over!"

We can ask ourselves:

Am I living an amazing adventure? If not can I invite Jesus in?

Can I let Jesus Christ take over in every area of my life? In my struggles? In my great moments and my hard ones?

Jesus, I invite You into my weaknesses, thank You for wanting to be in my moments with me. Thank You that Your grace covers my shame and guilt and allows me to accept forgiveness and live in Your strength relying on You. In Your name
