I am not what I ought to be... I am not what I desire to be... I am not what I wish to be... and, 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 lives, but life has a way of throwing us curve balls that change those very strategies, unless we give our agendas and timing to Him! Knowing that nothing will happen to me aside from God's will is comforting, even when it may cause alarm because of the unknown.
When our way of doing something suddenly changes to what God's perfect design is, it may intimidate or perturb non-Christians, but for Christians it must keep us at a steady pace of moving in His grace! I truly believe that God's will for me, will never take me to where His grace will not protect or keep me perfectly secure in His presence.
The mystery of God's grace is 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 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... while we are Moving Forward in God's Everlasting Grace!
