All, My Thoughts

My Thoughts: Grace

Picture

You ever notice a theme in your life? Hear a certain word over and over? Wonder if God is trying to tell you something?

​That’s what I’m beginning to think. In January and February, I wrote a rough draft of a novel which is book two in a series I’m doing. The theme: grace.

​Then I read a book with the same theme. And then I went to church with the same theme. I can’t tell if God is asking me to be more graceful, to continue writing about grace, or if He simply wants me to share what I’ve learned. So I’ll do all three.

​I’ve been in a situation where I’m ashamed of my actions. When I realized the beauty of Christ’s gifts, salvation and freedom from my sins. I was humbled. I sought to live a life in gratitude of this gift. I began to treat others differently because of that abundance of grace He gave me.

​Yet, there are times when I’m impatient. Where I’m rude. Where grace is no where to be found. It’s not an attitude I want to maintain. It’s not something I want to develop into a trait. So I repent and pray.

​When I write a story, I want to show others an aspect of God they’ve yet to see or experience. There is so much to Him that we can’t all experience it at once. But the thing I want people to see the most is the grace in which He deals with us. His love is so overwhelming that it has to come from His grace. It abounds and there is no limit.

​I pray that wherever you are in your faith journey, that You have seen the beauty of grace. That you will use it whenever you encounter another human being. That you would bless others with it as God has blessed you with it.

I pray that grace never leaves your hearts. And I would appreciate it if you would pray the same for me.

Blessings to you and yours,
​Toni

  1. Toni, I think where I fail in the area of grace is that I look to man for it instead of dwelling on and drinking in the grace of God. When we expect grace from man and don’t get it, it’s too easy to be discouraged. But God’s grace runs deep in our soul – carries us through our trials and confusion. Thanks for sharing! Grace to you.

    1. So true, Jan! We should also remember it’s our duty as daughters of our Heavenly Father to show grace as a reflection of His grace. Blessings to you.
