Living in the Present

When we live in the past or the future, peace cannot be found.  Error is never found in the present.  The more we release regret of the past or fear of the future, peace is ours.  2 Corinthians 12:9 states, “And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness. Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.”  Only gratitude and humility will keep you in perfection and harmony.  God is the great “I Am”, not I was nor I will be!

Hindsight

Another old belief I need to rid myself of is that hindsight is 20-20.  That is far from the Truth if the past holds blame, bitterness and condemnation.  My prayer again is to see how God sees things.  2 Corinthians 12:9 reads, “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.”

Myth of Self-Sufficiency

Self-sufficiency is destroyed as I realize my dependence upon God more and more daily.  Then, I know my security lies in God.  2 Corinthians 12:9 states, “And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’  Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.”

This verse was reassuring during a severe hail storm last night.  This morning I express gratitude for  our protection including home and cars.
