But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
THROUGH ALL THE PAIN
AND THROUGH ALL THE TEARS...
THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOD'S
MOVING IN GOD'S GRACE
I know I am not what I ought to be... I know am not what I desire to be... I know I am not what I wish to be... and, I even know I am not even what I hope to be... However, by the
"Grace of God" I am moving in God's grace, towards what
He wants me to be!
We all want to plan our own lives, but life has a way of throwing us curve balls that change those very strategies we
worked so hard to attain! God has a plan and purpose for
each of our lives, we may try to achieve our own plans
but until we give our agenda and timing to God, we will
not have the JOY He intended for us to have!
GOD IS NEVER SURPRISED
God knows the very number of hairs on our heads (LUKE 12:7),
He knows and has called us by our names (ISAIAH 43:1), and
God has set His love upon us (PSALM 91:14) as we face each
day! When we realize that nothing will happen to us
aside from God's perfect will, we can face anything!
Our comfort comes from God in times of sadness, in times
of uncertainty, danger and even in our mourning the loss
of a loved one. We are not called to worry or fret
because God is never surprised by what we are going
OFF THE BEATEN PATH
When we walk away from God purposely or even unknowingly
and suddenly there are life changes, that don't fit into God's perfect design we must allow His Grace to move us back
into position that will align us with His will! I honestly
believe that God's will for me, will never take me to where
His grace will not protect or keep me secure in His presence!
The mystery of God's grace is just that; "there is no sickness too great for His healing... there is no despair too great for His joy... there is no hatred too great for His love and there is no sin too great for His forgiveness!" The Grace of God is greater than our cheap behaviors, unacceptable ugliness or bad news.
There is no Grace that is greater than God's love as long as "we strive to keep in step... as we determine to abide in Him daily!" Our job is to keep Moving Forward in
God's Everlasting Grace!
