grace elation …

After struggling for 1 year to complete 4 real estate courses to enable me to take the California real estate brokers test, I sadly had only read one book and it had to be the driest, most boring Economics course ever. I just could not take the course test. It was like the words on the page would not stick in my head. I extended the courses another 6 months, the maximum extension. Somewhere a few months ago, still having not conquered Economics, I moved on to Appraisals. I also came desperately to the Throne of Grace and wrote out a formal petition based on some verses I found appropriate. Took the mercy, took the grace, coming back to that petition, plus a few others I had made about the same time, on a somewhat consistent basis, thanking the Lord that it was done. Appraisals took a couple of months as I kept reviewing and reviewing and reviewing the book. Time was running out … again! and I could not perceive the Grace kicking in … until I really began to LOOK at GRACE.

Finally I took the Appraisal test, and sensed an overcoming I had not perceived for a long time. Picked up the Office Administration book. It was like I breezed through the pages. Chapters began disappearing into … “that was easy”, and in 2 weeks I had completed the book and aced the test … at the literal midnight hour … absolutely last day, and almost last hour … last night. I hardly slept. There was a glow … almost euphoria, that engulfed me. It was like I was a soccer player who had scored the only goal, the winning goal, the last seconds of the game … but just me and God were celebrating. It was good! It is good! As I LOOKED at GRACE, it worked in me from the inside out. What a God! What OUTRAGEOUS GRACE!

2 CORINTHIANS 12:9   “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”   NLT

What else can I say but, “Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! In Jesus name, Thank You!”
