Grace. Unmerited Favor. Goodwill. These are just a few of the words that describe what grace is. It's a word seen less and less of these days. With the growth of social media, everyone has an opinion or point of view, but often they are not shared with grace.
Where has the goodwill toward our fellow man or woman gone? There is something to be said for treating one another with grace. I am not naïve enough to believe that showing grace is an easy thing to do.
Thankfully for those who belong to Jesus, we have been indwelt by the Holy Spirit, whose divine power is available to us. He will give us the courage, wisdom, and strength to show grace.
I know I have experienced God's power in dealing with those I'd prefer not to show them grace.
There have also been moments when my grace has been in short supply. Moments that I'm not proud of, I admit.
That's when I lean into the arms of the God who loves me so.
My God continues to show me grace every day. I don't deserve His grace, but I thank Him daily for His grace and unconditional love.
So, I am pleading with you today. Let's live each day with love and show a little grace to someone.
The Furnace of Affliction
As painful as those trying seasons in my life were, I feel I have learned and grown from the experiences. I no longer practice those habitual sins, taking advantage of God’s undeserved grace.
