"He Giveth More Grace"

By Annie Johnson Flint

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.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision, 
Our God ever yearns His resources to share; 

Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing; 
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

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!


It is written by Paul in Corinthians, "My Grace is sufficient"

What this means is that whatever you are going through, God is with you,
God will guide you, comfort you and give you strength to endure.
He may not remove the hardship, but He will see you through.

Annie Johnson Flint knew hardship.

Born in the 1800's she was orphaned as a young child.
She was poor and grew up in a difficult world.

In her later years she became severely crippled by arthritis, 
but she still wrote poetry reflecting her love for Christ.

Her was so severe that she was unable to hold a pen - a crayon or stick of chalk
 was wedged between her fingers so she could write on a surface suspended over her bed.
