Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Sufficient Grace

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."
2 Corinthians 12:9

That was my devotion verse for today...and you know what? I needed this verse today!
We have direct access to His grace and it is sufficient. His grace is enough even on days or weeks when we need more grace...His grace is sufficient.

On a week where:
1. Rachel was in the hospital...His grace was sufficient!

2. When we were scared to drive her home from the hospital....His grace was sufficient!

3. When I over medicated my youngest child because I gave her Allegra twice in a matter of 6 hours (oh my heavens this could have been awful!!!)...His grace was sufficient. (She lived through it and we are thankful...and we didn't have to go to the emergency room-hallelujah!)
What's bad is I didn't even know what had happened until the next day! Hannah had forgotten to take her medicine while we were away so she took it in the late afternoon. When we got home from Ft. Worth, Hannah started having an allergy attack and I told her to take her medicine because I thought it had been 12 hours....wrong...only 6....oh my goodness!

4. Rachel's headaches are still hanging around and she is heartbroken about it...His grace is sufficient!

5. I have 67 times 5 papers to grade before Friday...His grace is sufficient!

6. I can't sleep well at night because I am agonizing over Rachel's progress...His grace is sufficient!

7. Hannah forgot that I wasn't at school Tuesday and she caught the bus to the high school and then I couldn't find her for 30 minutes which threw me into a complete panic....like we need any more drama...His grace is sufficient!

Yes, His grace is sufficient and His power is perfected in weakness. I'm so glad that I don't have to try to do it all in my own power and strength. How about you? How have you found His grace to be sufficient this week?

Angela said...

I'm so glad that I don't have to try to do it all in my own power and strength...amen amen amen...

this post ministered to me greatly. Oh how the storms are really blowing right now,,,but praise be to God, His grace is sufficient...

Melanie said...

Oh, yes... God's grace is sufficient. Even in the roughest times of our lives.

Though I've never met you or Rachel, I just want to hug you both right now. I guess I'll just have to keep praying instead! :) (which, of course, I would do anyway!)

You're amazing, ya know that?


Thanks for the reminder!


Erica said...

Sweet friend, you always have the right perspective, and even when it is hard to believe, we can because He has proven faithful time and time again. Love yo!

Marsha said...

Yes, He is sufficient. He is enough. He is also a compassionate Father who cares for Rachel even more than you do, hard to imagine. You are not alone in this health crisis. I know you know this. I'm merely affirming you and His Word and His promises to you.

I continue to pray.
