God's grace sustains me like manna in a dry and barren land.
God’s grace sustains me like manna in a dry and barren land.

“From His abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another. For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:16-17, NLT

Lord, You are the God of peace, not the god of confusion — not the god of chaos. You are not the author of thoughts that run amuck and create their own three-ring circus.

No, You are the God of peace and Your grace flows freely from Your hand.

Your grace is sufficient for all my needs.

And I need it right now. I know it’s available, but I need You to help me grasp hold.

I feel like I might go crazy from these burdens. I know. I know I’m not supposed to carry them, but somehow, every day, they end up on my shoulders. I realize that is by my own choosing — not Yours — but nevertheless, that’s what happens.

And then I start to crumble beneath the weight. And then I feel fearful and full of doubt, unworthy of Your love. And then I need Your grace to crawl out from beneath the boulder sitting on my chest and I need Your forgiveness for jerking the burdens from You to begin with.

Oh wretched woman that I am! Why do I do this?

Your grace is how I can survive this difficult time. Your grace sustains me like manna in a dry and barren land. Your grace strengthens me and reminds me I am not alone.

God's grace renews me. His love is all I need.
God’s grace renews me. His love is all I need.

Your grace really is amazing. Thank You for giving it so freely.

Rain down on me, Lord. I want to dance with joy in the refreshing shower of Your grace. Wash over me. Renew me. Your love is all I need. Your Presence is more precious than gold.

And in Your Presence there is grace.

I worship You, Lord. Blessed by Your Name.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,
