God's Grace

(I never know who it is I am writing to or writing for, and I don't get much feedback, but I realize I miss you anyway!  On November 29, I had surgery for a hernia, but I didn't realize it would stop part of my life!  I am mending, although not nearly fast enough for me, but enough to have hours off pain medications so I could find my head again. Thank you for your prayers.)

I am continually amazed how God meets our needs, including needs we didn't even know we needed.  I recently read a commentary on John 21:15-17 where Jesus asks Peter, "Do you love me?"  Jesus repeats the question three times, even though Peter answered "Yes" to the first two questions.  Peter didn't understand why Jesus repeated the question three times.  However, remember Matthew 26, where Peter fulfilled the words of Jesus, "Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times."  Jesus remembered, and gave Peter three chances to redeem himself!  Jesus was truly the living, earthly example of God's grace.  In 2 Corinthians 12:9, we are reminded that Jesus said,  "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."  Grace has been abundant to me in the past few weeks, and today again I am reminded to stop wishing and whining, and just rest in Jesus.  His grace is sufficient for right now and always.
