The Two-Lane Road

My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, my power is made perfect in you.  2 Corinthians 12:9 NCV

I have a hard time listening to talk radio because it is depressing. There is little good news. All this strife led me to have a vision about driving on a curvy two-lane mountain road. I never knew what was around the next bend or what would happen. 

Such is a picture of life, and, to me, it seems more real today than ever before. There have been times when I didn’t know how I was going to make it. One of the most trying times was when my mom, who was recovering from alcoholism, committed suicide. Another time was when I lost my part-time job and then my rent was increased by two-hundred dollars monthly, forcing me to move.

I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but God’s power will be made perfect in me. I was a messed-up kid after my mom died, but my dad re-married, and God brought my stepmom, who stepped up to change my life. Because of her, I went to treatment where I dealt with my problems. The day I lost my part-time job, I was offered a full-time position in a career-related field. Moreover, I found a new and better place to live.

God has been faithful to me in the past. In the difficult times I faced, His power and provision have always been there when I needed Him the most. 

Maybe God has done something similar for you. Remembering it is good. As Christians, trusting God's goodness, power, and grace in times past can lead us to peacefully trust His provision for today. His power will be made perfect in us—in our weakness when we need Him the most. 

Ask God to help you trust Him in all situations.
