Good morning, DearOne.
Counting blessings this morn. It keeps me from wallowing in the struggles. This is moving day for my youngest. He will return. Many times. But, from my experience with his brothers, I know all too well that this is a new place … an end to life as I’ve known it. My nature is to get stuck on the loss, and dismiss the joys that are coming. So, a focused, conscious effort has been in full force during the wee hours.
Choosing to turn the challenges of my life over to my Maker. Feeling the grace.
Feeling His presence.
Feeling His grace emerge from the shadows. Transforming. Kneading this heart. Grace is a power that transforms the moment. It comes to us in direct responswhen we call to Christ in prayer. It works on us at a deeper, individual level … so we see beyond the surface – what a situation seems to be, to a place where growth sprouts. Every place of growth then becomes another tool … a blessing from which we can help others heal. God’s grace is the most powerful pearl on the planet.
Always available to penetrate into every situation.
It doesn’t make the hurt go away, but it releases new understanding on a spiritual level. It heightens us. You know, if grace was a color and we could physically see it on our life and on our circumstances, we could not bear the weight of it.
‘Father, allow me to know Your grace so fully today that those souls with whom I brush by become filled with the blessing and experience the gift – the weight of Your grace.’
“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” John 1:16 ESV
From His fullness – notice grace upon grace in your moments.
