Grace

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. 2 Timothy 1:9 KJV

Grace and Hope

Think on it,
Life is more than the blink of an eye.
The you that believes you’re not worth much,
the you who feels disappointed when life doesn’t go your way,
you have a place in this world and in God’s plan.
This is true since the beginning of all time.
God’s love for you didn’t begin when you were born;
it began when the cosmos were formed.
Doubt cannot stand in the way of Grace,
Christ the gift of Heaven, rests in you.
Pass it on. Live well. Have faith.
You are the recipient of God’s grace.
This is true since the beginning of all time.

The spirit of wisdom

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him… Ephesians 1:17 KJV

Prayer

 

The spirit of wisdom and revelation,
does not come through judgment.
Listen instead of talk.
Empty your mind of

preconceptions
discontent
disappointment.

Be rid of all that,
see with wisdom.

Be enlightened.
Be encouraged.
Be keenly aware of God.

He is at work in the world
and in the lives of all.

God’s grace comes now,
not in some far off
after-we’re-dead time,

right now.
The power of God
present with us

in the Spirit of wisdom,
and revelation.

Lean not on your understanding

Grace beyond words

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12

Son LightAmong the chosen. How awesome is that? God in his glory, fully realized in every sense of the word, powerful beyond imagining, greater than anything human minds can conceive, creator and author of all of life, in all of the cosmos, God has chosen to love me. I am struck speechless at the idea of it, knowing full well I haven’t deserved this love and have at times forgotten that it is there, holding me up, protecting me in the storms of life, taking it as my due. God’s love for me is singular. It is based on his infinite love for his creation: me. The thing is that although it is singular to me, it is also singular to every person who calls upon his name. His choice. His love revealed in the form of a wee babe who grew to be a teacher, friend and redeemer. Amazing grace beyond words.
