Message from Jbé
Arriving at the end of the year I look back and I see each and every step where Jesus walked with me. I look back on trail after trail, some fails and some achievements that I still cannot wrap my mind around. With every tournament this past year, I read the word "Grace" after every full stop in my story.
Bethel has a song that goes something like this:
This is amazing Grace.
This is unfailing Love.
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You would lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Jesus, I sing for
All that You've done for me
(Bethel- Amazing Grace)
Now, this is exactly what I want to do. Shout from every rooftop thanking God for carrying me and pushing me through this year.
During this year I lived and breathed 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 which says: "Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "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."
Now, let us look upon another year and another chance to give all honor to God in everything that we do. Let our flesh be less for His power and grace to be more.
Have a fantastic Christmas season. We honor God for sending His only son, to carry our crosses, and dying for our sins. And therefore we will celebrate His life, not just this day, but every coming day.
