Thank goodness for Grace

So… we as humans don’t always make wise decisions in our words, actions, thoughts, etc…  We all fall or struggle at some point and give into temptation.  We all have weaknesses.  But thankfully when we are weak, HE is strong.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

How humbling it is for me to think how much I do not deserve God’s grace or love, yet he gives it to me anyway.  He looks at me, as His creation, and says I am very good.

Something whispered to my heart this week is that sometimes I need to accept God’s grace.  There is nothing a can do, and nothing that I fail to do that can change God’s love for me.  It is a learning process, a journey, that I am on with Him.  It isn’t a sprint, a 5k, or even a half marathon.  I am on this journey while here on Earth.  It will not be complete until I am in heaven.  I have so much to learn, so much to experience, and so many people to reach by God using me, so until then I serve, I pray, I learn.

My prayer is that I love those around me well, I have honored God and man by my very life, and that my words are kind. There are days it is harder to do than others.

So, until I am called home, I pray, I serve, and I love.
