"My Grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
That’s such a beautiful passage, my power works best in weakness. His power works best when we are at our weakest. I don’t know about you my friend but this pandemic certainly has tested me in more areas than one. And I certainly have had many many many times of weakness, anger, depression, anxiety, uncertainty, frustration, fear. All of the feelings the devil loves to hand out. I think 2020 in general has just been plain frustrating, it’s hasn’t been normal, for anyone, anywhere and it is so sad. So many people have suffered so much loss and it hasn’t even begun yet. So let’s offer up grace to one another. Because we all know we are weak, we all fall short and we could all use a hand up sometimes.
You could be asking yourself, well what exactly is grace? Grace is the unmerited favor from God. Meaning, grace cannot be earned, it is not a prize for good behavior or being an outstanding Christian. Grace is a gift from God that he gives freely to everyone who believes, no matter how many times we mess up and fall short of his glory. It is by the grace of God that we are forgiven over and over and over again. So if God can continuously forgive us even in the midst of sin, why can we not forgive others and give them a little rectitude. I know, your not god, nor close to it, so it can be hard at times. These times are hard enough as it is, and to not give grace fully is not a good way to spread the love of Christ. So let’s offer grace and love to each other.
I implore you, today, offer grace to someone you deem is not worthy of it. Give them a helping hand, show them the love and grace of Christ, just as he has shown you. You will see how drastically your demeanor will change. And that just might be the change you need my friend.
On a silly side note, I apologize if my writing seems off, I am having serious mom brain! I am being very forgetful and it has been difficult to form comprehensive sentences at times. I often have to go back and reread what I have written several times. Between this pregnancy, severe nausea and vomiting, lack of sleep, homeschooling and traveling, my mind just isn’t where it needs to be when writing. I do enjoy it though, so much. I apologize if it seems off or scatterbrained, it won’t last forever (I pray). For now, go in peace, love and grace. I love you all dearly my faithful readers. May God bless you on this beautiful day!
Faith & Love,
