He Giveth More Grace


He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater;
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase.
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father's full giving is only begun.

His love has no limit;
His grace has no measure;
His pow'r has no boundary known unto men.
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!


From His fullness we have received . . . grace upon grace. John 1:16


Thank you so much for your sweet comments and emails. Your words of comfort and your prayer support mean more than words can say. God is good - we know this didn't catch Him by surprise - and we can feel His arms holding us close.

  2. I have been holding you and your daughter and her children up in prayer since I learned of your son-in-laws death. I pray that God will use the loving arms of his people to hold you up and show you His love and care. How are you all doing?

  9. I came over from Mimi's beautiful site and was saddened to hear your family's heartbreaking news. I have always loved that song, and it is so true! I have a private blog, unfortunately, but wanted to let you know how sorry I am.
