My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (MSG)

Don’t you think some days are harder than others?

I felt like canceling Monday today - just closing my eyes and waking up on Tuesday. 

That way my husband wouldn’t have to have another biopsy. We could just keep pretending that his lymph nodes weren’t enlarged again and not have to deal with doctors trying to discover if he’ll need more chemotherapy.

While I struggled to open my eyes, I remembered a beautiful story Corrie ten Boom tells of when she was a child, and she realized that her father would die one day:

I burst into tears, “I need you!” I sobbed. “You can't die! You can't!” “Corrie,” he began gently. “When you and I go to Amsterdam, when do I give you your ticket?” “Why, just before we get on the train.” “Exactly. And our wise Father in heaven knows when we're going to need things, too. Don't run out ahead of him, Corrie. When the time comes that some of us will have to die, you will look into your heart and find the strength you need – just in time.”

So this morning instead of cancelling Monday, I prayed this prayer:
God, I don’t feel like facing today but thank you that your grace is enough. Please provide me with exactly what I need, when I need it to make it through today. Amen

I don’t know why you’re whispering that prayer or why you wish you could cancel today but I do know that whatever you’re facing God’s grace enough. 

And I do know that when the time comes to face that thing you dread you will look into your heart and find the strength you need – just in time.

So I can say with confidence today that, God’s grace is enough for a biopsy, enough for me.
