Today’s post is going to be a little rogue…you see the wonderful ladies over at Five Minute Friday who have given me the word prompts for this month long series won’t be releasing this Friday’s word until later tonight (Thursday). The hitch is that I am going to be in the car when the word is released because we are heading out to visit Isaac for the first time at college!
So I was trying to decide what I was going to do. My access to WIFI over the next 2 days will be limited so I thought for this post I would pick my own word. (Rule breaker I know!!) But for some extra fun I enlisted the help of my kids. I explained why I needed a word and asked them to each give me one and then we would vote on which word to use.
Karlena said Purple – which if you have been following along, I just wrote about.
Gabriel said Land – that one could be pretty challenging don’t you think?!
Elijah said Grace – well actually he said God’s Amazing Grace, which yes is 3 words, but they are pretty good ones so he gets a pass this time! 😉
We voted and they unanimously chose Grace.
I seem to be needing a lot of grace here recently.
Some days are better than others, but let’s be honest, I am a hot mess most days.
I feel more aware than ever how incredible this unconditional love that God has for me is.
Us a fallen people, rebellious and ungrateful…yet with grace and mercy and filled with love, God sent His Son as a sacrifice for us all so that we could spend eternity with Him.
I seriously don’t think that I will ever tire of writing and re-writing those truths.
I want them to sink in deep into my soul.
I want to live my days filled with joy because of all that God has done for me.
I am desperate to grasp tightly to this grace gift and spend my life filled with a gratitude at all He is to me.
Yes my Elijah had it right…God’s Amazing Grace. How amazing it is indeed.
If I am spending my days seeking God, I am fully aware of this grace that He has poured out on me. And I walk forward filled with a gratefulness that changes my entire perspective.
What a gift this grace is, what a gift.
