Offering Ourselves Grace

52 Weeks of Grace, Christian living Comments: 6

IMG_2844I 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.

Blessings,

V

    Our Church does a Valentine’s Dinner at an Assisted Living on Monday night. I am in charge of it. I have never done this before and am nervous for everything to go well.

      Isn’t it interesting how we volunteer for things and then WORRY? I hope it went well, Pat, and I imagine it did!

    I am so very thankful that God gives me His grace each and every moment. I need His grace in healing from this medical procedure. I am not very patient when it comes to pain and healing. I think God is telling me that I need to slow down and enjoy each moment that is pain free. 🙂

    I am thankful for God’s grace he give me to endure the pain I have every day. So thankful it is not worse than it is. I can still get around on my own because of God’s grace.
