Forever Grace

January 9, 2012

There are times in life when you’re going to feel like a little rabbit surrounded by hungry wolves. When pride takes over the hearts of those around you leaving you as open prey. It’s not pretty and it leaves you scarred. Grace seemingly a passing fad. That feeling of being alone is heavy and a burden to carry.

Stand up.

Allow grace to drip like honey from your lips. Put pride to death and wear Jesus for all to see.

We all have times in our lives when we are breathtakingly beautiful and when we are disgustingly ugly. Remember that the next time somebody wrongs you.

We all are in deep need of grace. And these are the opportunities given to us to show grace to others. When we desire it is the same time we should be showing it.

There are times when I can tell you why somebody is showing grace. Maybe from guilt? From somebody telling them to? Because they are planning on using that as ammo during the next conflict? And then there’s God’s grace. There are no answers to why He excuses our sinful actions except that he loves us. That’s it. Plain and simple. He. Loves. Us.

Why is it so difficult for us to do the same? We love our family and our friends but all it takes is one misstep and they fall out of our graces.

Take note today if there is someone who needs your grace. Someone who needs to know that they are worthwhile. And then allow your words and your actions to point them back to the one who has dressed us in such angelic undeserved grace. When put into that perspective we need not seek anyone’s grace but God’s. He is our all.
