Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest on me." Remember, the world say's you can't, by the Word say's you can, Satan say's you're not going to make it, but Christ say's you will, family, friends, and fellow -workers may say there's no way, but the Holy Spirit say's "greater is he tat is in you, than he that is in the world." (Ijn4:4) What is grace, it's a sustaining grace that will help you through every storm, sorrow, and situation in life.

There is power in the blood, there is power in the Word and the Holy Spirit, there is power in prayer. What is grace, it's a vast supply!
