I’m on a mission.
A mission that the Lord has laid upon my heart pretty strongly.
I am going to share something I am deeply thankful for out loud on the blog for a while, friends.
The Word tells us to be thankful in all things. And lately, the Lord is asking me to find my thankful “rhythm” in each and every day.
Today, I am most grateful for grace.
Receiving of grace is not new for me by any means.
But I saw more grace today than I have seen in an entire day in a very long while.
Grace from people – God seeping through them.
Grace from people filled with the love of Jesus.
Grace from people who are still flawed, still sinners in need of a Savior, like me…..but who understand how much of a manifestation of Jesus and His love that grace actually is.
You know, it’s never too late. When we mess something up, but don’t see it until it seems like the moment has passed, we can always do our best to turn it around.
I saw that kind of grace today too. It’s in the heart. The heart that is filled with Him and His grace.
I saw grace through laughter today.
I saw grace through tears.
I saw grace through prayers, hands, work, voice, singing, and typing on a computer.
I saw grace in sharing about shortcomings, and things we all are thinking about, praying about, and wondering about.
I saw grace through mistakes.
But grace doesn’t go wrong.
I saw grace in the eyes of the children of Jesus today.
And I even got to see Him give some grace to me that I could share with others.
Even me….the recipient of far more grace than I ever show or give.
Even me….the one who knows how much room there still is for grace to flow out of her towards others.
Even me. And there’s grace in that.
I am thankful for grace today. Grace given, and grace received.
There’s even grace in that all by itself…..
Grace in the gift of gratitude.
Grace layered upon grace.
It’s not impossible.
It’s a divine mission.
Because it’s from HIM. The One through whom all things are possible.
The One who turns our “missions” into reality.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
