Christ Alone is Sufficient!

Posted: September 13, 2015 in Uncategorized

God never ceases to amaze me…how the little pieces of my day, while seemingly haphazard to me, have been ordered by my Creator! Psalm 90:12-teach me to number my days that I might gain a heart of wisdom! 

Let me be straightforward, it is imperative that we cultivate our love of God’s Word and develop a habit of prayer during the ‘good times’ in our lives; so that during ‘crisis times’ we can draw strength and comfort from Christ as naturally as drawing our next breath! 

Earlier today, I had a family emergency…my daughter, who is an hour and a half away at college, had a severe allergic reaction to a medication and had to go to the ER. As I was heading to the hospital, I texted a few friends/prayer warriors to please be praying for her. For reasons unknown to me, not one person got my texts… So for an hour and a half, I drove (rather quickly)…and wondered why none of my friends had responded…I couldn’t open my Bible while I was driving…but I could pray and pray I did! God used this time to remind me that He Alone is sufficient. How grateful that events from this past year had reignited a passion within me to pursue His Word! God’s truths were etched on my heart and He brought them to mind as I prayed. His promises brought me peace.  And not by chance, I had just attended a funeral service where Hope was proclaimed! Those words of hope and truth soothed my soul. 

God is good. God is faithful.  God heard the prayers of a mother’s heart and He alone was the answer to my prayers. 

As I traveled back home this evening, this song came on the radio…nothing is more true…

“Your Words”

Let me hear Your words  Above all other voices 

Above all the distractions in this world

Let me hear Your words  Above all of the voices 

Above all the distractions in this world

For Your words bring life

And Your voice speaks promises

Lord, Your love offers more

Than anything else in this world

Your words give us life that’s never ending

Your words bring us love that never fails

Everything else will fade away

But what will remain

Are Your words

Let us speak Your words

More than ours, more than ever 

Let us share Your love with all the world 

The grass will wither and the flowers will fall

But the word of our God will last forever

The grass will wither and the flowers will fall

But the word of our God will last forever
