grace enough

i was reading 2 corinthians, and chapter 12 verse 9 reminded me that God's grace is sufficient because His power is made perfect in my weakness. each time i fail at life (and it seems that i've been doing that a lot lately) i hide in shame, as though i have failed a God whose grace isn't enough. i keep waiting for the time when He says, "that's it, you've had your last chance. i am tired of fixing you, and i am running out of get-out-of jail-free cards to give you. you're on your own now." 

but instead, each time that i fall because i cannot do it on my own, i learn more of God's grace. i am only now learning what this verse means. the weaker i am, and the more i fail, the more God comes to my rescue, takes me in His ever-loving arms, and fixes me. i have freedom to mess up. if i didn't it wouldn't be love. this i have always known. but i am learning something new about the character of God today. i am learning the layers of this verse. the more i am in need of grace, the more i learn of the wonders of my gracious God. and i stand speechless.
