He Giveth More Grace by Annie Johnson Flint is one of my theme songs. The other is Ron Hamiltons Rejoice in the Lord.
Today, a friend posted in her blog, Chronically Content about Chronic Illness Flares.
Her post hit home. My friends and family know that I also struggle with chronic illness. I have an inner-ear disorder called Bilateral Menieres which affects my balance, causes constant ringing in the ears, motion sickness and most notably, vertigo. And then there are Migraines with Aura. Either of these “thorns in the flesh” as the Apostle Paul called his illness, can knock me out of doing daily tasks and driving.
My friend, Lisa, wrote about dirty dishes in the sink, laundry in the hampers and not being able to do anything on bad days. Like Lisa, I am sorry to say is the same here.
We both have three wonderful things in common.
- A loving husband who understands and helps around the house. My hubby is especially good at doing the laundry (I fold), running the vacuum cleaner and buying dinner and bringing it home.
- Timberlake Baptist Church, friends and family who pray for us, offer rides to the doctor and give encouragement.
- Love of the Lord who is with us each minute; step by step, day by day.
As I read her post, the Lord prompted me to write this comment:
Lisa, I know just what you mean. As I was reading this, the words to He Giveth More Grace by Annie Johnson Flint came to mind. Especially this verse.
“When we have exhausted our store of endurance;
when our strength has failed, ere the day is half done.
When we’ve reached the end of our hoarded resources;
our Father’s full giving is only begun.
His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.”
She wrote these words out of physical pain. I came across this article about her and her testimony.http://www.homecomingmagazine.com/article/he-giveth-more-grace/
