Grace and Good Works

Just a few verses to get you through the day!

2 Corinthians 12:9

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ's power may rest on me.

Assignment: Blog about 1-2 weaknesses you are dealing with right now..So Christ's power may rest on you!

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you WILL carry it on to completion until the day of Christ!!

Also someone sent me this link I thought it was neat
soda vs. Pop vs. Coke

Donna! That is such an encouragement to me today...I was just listening to this song by Bethany Dillon and the lyrics are "You take an ordinary day and turn it in to flowers like the month of May...and You see all my pain, and cry over it for hours till I'm new again!"
I think one of my weaknesses is not realizing the fullness of Christ's love and compassion for our everyday pain...I always think I'm supposed to be strong and full of faith...but His power is made perfect in my weakness!
Thanks for the encouraging verses : )

I had NO IDEA so many people called all pop "coke"! I have heard about it...but jeez, 40% of the country calls everything "coke"!

P.S. The areas that don't call it pop, soda, or coke....what the heck are they calling it? Carbonated beverage perhaps?

Kimber said...

Jason - you make me laugh...good point though, what do they call it, if not pop, soda or coke?

Donna - my biggest weakness these last two weeks has been spending too much time blogging and not enough time cleaning my house...Yikes!

Actually, honestly, I would have to say, having self-control with my kids - I need to watch my tone with them....:(

donna, great verse, i love that verse! the version i like says " i will boast all the more about my weakness so that Christ's power may pitch a tent and dwell over me!" also, that map was cool! when i was in mississippi, it truly was funny when i asked for a "coke" the waiter/waitress would say "what kind?" ha!

Autumn said...

how interesting... I was one of the "coke" people for most of the time that I lived in Arkansas... I have since converted to "pop"dom

I did go through a phase of "soft drink" though, so that would be considered an "other" term

My big weaknesses right now (only listing two remember) are anger and pride (two whammies)

Well I didn't list MY weaknesses. Like everyone, listing 2 is hard. #1 would be my temper #2 my temper. I am having a hard time with this. Especially when we get home from the LONG drive from picking Merci up from school. Ethan and I are sick of being in the car, Merci never seems to pick up on the empty your bookbag, lunchbox in the sink, change your clothes do your homework. I need to understand she has had a long day too! But I usually loose my temper and start yelling, which makes everything that much more difficult!
