I remember when I was growing up, my daddy would ask before a meal, “Who wants to offer grace?” Isn’t that a lovely phrase? Offering grace. Yeah, that has a nice ring to it. For the month of January I thought that we’d talk about different ways we can offer ourselves grace.
“What gives me the most hope every day is God’s grace; knowing that his grace is going to give me the strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God.” ~Rick Warren
Isn’t that an awesome quote? “HIS grace is going to give me strength.” Wow. That’s powerful stuff. So I don’t have to try to be strong. I don’t have to dig deep and find the strength somewhere in myself, because HIS grace is going to give me the strength I need.
WOW! So let’s share. What do you need HIS GRACE for today? Personally, I’m under this mountain of writing deadlines, which is awesome–as long as I don’t think about it too hard. If I think about it, I might freeze, like a deer caught in a car’s headlights. If I dwell on it, I might start feeling tired. But I don’t have to worry about all of that, because I can depend … you guessed it … on His grace.
