Sunday grace

“I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward.” He said that to Abram.

He says that to me.

When I am afraid, He is my protection and my place of safety.

When the road ahead looks dangerous and dark, He promises He will go with me and be the light.

When I feel threatened, He is my defense.

When fire consumes, moth eats away, and the thief steals, He is my portion forever.

When I am hungry or thirsty, He gives me bread that sustains the weary, water from a fresh fountain.

When the burdens are too heavy, He lifts them and offers His own yoke.

When I think I cannot go on, He carries me.

When I falter, fall down, and fail miserably, His grace lifts me, heals my wounds, and gives strength for the journey.

He teaches me, comforts me, leads me. He is loving, faithful, merciful, and full of compassion toward me.

He died for me and rose again to offer me new life for the old one.

I search for what I think will satisfy my longings. Then I realize nothing will fill me. God alone satisfies.

He is enough.

Sunday grace.
