A Space of My Own 我的空间

Driven by Dependence

Posted on: November 19, 2009

I updated my status message in Facebook: When Diligence and
Determination do not work, Desperation must. One of my quotable quotes.
=p

Simon commented and asked me not to forget Dependence.
Wonderful reminder! Thank God for desperation for it drives us to turn
to Him. Sometimes I worry and think about too many things and lose the
joy in God because I forget to depend on Him.

And it’s not just
my studies, it’s more than that. It’s seeking sufficiency from Him in
advancing first and foremost the glory of His kingdom.

The song
below is very meaningful and I think besides being a reminder that
God’s grace is sufficient for us to meet our daily needs, it also
causes us to think of the reasons why we seek God’s grace. Not just to
meet the needs of self, but to glory God’s name in reaching out to
others.

Grace Alone

Every promise we can make
Every prayer and step of faith
Every difference we will make
Is only by His grace

Every mountain we will climb
Every ray of hope we shine
Every blessing left behind
Is only by His grace

Grace alone which God supplies
Strength unknown He will provide
Christ in us our cornerstone
We will go forth in grace alone

Every soul we long to reach
Every heart we hope to teach
Everywhere we share His peace
It’s only by His grace

Every loving word we say
Every tear we wipe away
Every sorrow turned to praise
It’s only by His grace

Search for Gail Lee 🙂 I couldn\’t find you either haha.

Search for Martyn Granville 😉

Haha ~ there are over 4000 results for Gail LeeU will have to refine it a bit dear, lol!!

Thanks Wes! I saw it before. But sometimes can\’t help wondering if that\’s only for a specific group of people who are meant to try and never give up and there are others not in the video who can\’t help failing still even after trying all their life. But then again God\’s grace is for everyone, and so is His purpose! That\’s the different thing that encourages me much more than any other success story.
