Touching the Heart of God

Touch the Heart of God


Even in my sorrow, I also know gratitude. Jesus is able to handle both, and as they’ve merged I’ve touched the very heart of God.

This last year has been marked by very painful and difficult health issues. Through it all, however, I’ve been grateful for what the Lord has done for me even as I struggle with the sorrow of diminished capacity.

As I decrease, I increasingly find the richness of His sufficient grace. From an early age, even as a child, I’ve always felt His hand on my life – and that sense has been all the more real this last year. It is sustaining.

Christ has also increased as His life, which I’ve poured into others, bears fruit. They are stepping forward into their own gifts and callings in ways that are beautiful to see.

That’s the way of God: In our weakness, grace abounds and life springs from life.

So even in my sorrow, I also know gratitude. Jesus is able to handle both, and as they’ve merged I’ve touched the very heart of God.
