Lessons of Faith - Grace and Mercy

During my illness, I have learned and continue to learn so many lessons about my faith. One of the biggest is always to praise and love our Heavenly Father daily. When I consider the grave situation my family and I faced and continue to face, I realize that all we have is our faith and the knowledge that God will provide a way when all may seem lost or dark. When there was no path, He cleared a way us. When there was only darkness around, He provide the light that guided our every step. When danger surrounded us, He provided a hedge of protection so that we had nothing to fear.

As one of my specialists told me, "Jesse, you are a walking, talking miracle. We don't even know why you are alive."

I responded, "Only by God's grace and mercy that I am still alive."

My family and I continue to praise, worship and love God and the mercy and grace that He provides us. We do not deserve it, but God, because of His infinite, everlasting and unfailing love for us, blesses us daily.

2 Corinthians 12:9 New Living Translation (NLT)

9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
