Project Grace Day 32: Have You Seen Him?

2 Peter 1:16 KJV
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

I can’t imagine what it must be like to actually see and talk to Jesus firsthand. What would it feel like to talk to a person who casted demons out,  who calmed the stormy waves and the raging winds of the Sea of Galilee, and who gloriously came back to life after being hanged on the Cross? Peter said it best when he stated that they were “eyewitnesses of his majesty”. I’d give anything to be able to spend time with Jesus.

February the first – another month of hurdles and challenges for us.This time in my life, I am deeply hurt that one of my closest family members is diagnosed with Stage 3B Cervical Cancer. When I first heard the news, I was shocked and completely devastated. My aunt is one of those people in the family whom we could easily call whenever we needed assistance in anything. And then Cancer happened. It just eats away the person from the inside and try and try as you may, he or she will eventually die.

Sad as it may seem, I struggle to see Jesus’ majesty in this situation. It’s hard knowing that you aren’t as well off as most people are to be able to shell out a large sum of money for chemotherapy.I know that for every weakness we have God’s strength is made perfect. It really takes grace to be able to accept the things that are happening in our lives without blaming God for the bad experiences.

I humbly ask for your prayers. They will bring us much comfort. Thank you all so much.

Yours truly,

Iva
