I’m remembering as a child, whenever I got sick with a cold, my mom would give me a daily dose of cough medicine. The purpose of the cough medicine was to stop the cough, even though the cold lingered. Many times the cough medicine didn’t taste so good, but I still managed to swallow it down. For I believed my mom when she told me it was good for me… just take it. As I continued to take my daily dose, I began to not only stop coughing, but to feel much better. I will forever be thankful of how my mom cared for me when I needed her most.
Now that I’m no longer a child, I still look for my daily dose… not of cough medicine, but God’s grace. I can count on it. It’s there every morning and every night, and throughout the day. Thankful, it can’t be purchased from a store, nor stored in a bottle, and has an expiration date. It is God’s grace. It is good for all times and for whatever may ail me or you. And it will provide strength to press through the darkest of times, even to the light of day. I will forever be grateful for God’s amazing daily grace.
“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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”‘ (2 Corinthians 12:9).
“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace” (John 1:16).
I will keep on thanking God for His ever abiding grace. By Hertistine Washington/ keeponthanking.com
