Good morning!!! Love this quote....we are all so ‘BUSY’ these days...it’s become an artwork & sport al rolled into one....I’ve changed my perspective around all the things we juggle & getting things done & completed is so much more satisfying than being BUSY.....when you reflect on your days & weeks is it with accomplishment or exhaustion 🤔
grace is tricky. sometimes it’s hard to give, it’s hard to receive, it’s messy, and sometimes it’s even hard to show grace to ourselves. But through it all, we meet God. He is always extending endless amounts of grace to us. Even in the moments we slip. “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” -Genesis 6:8. I don’t know about you, but to me this screams compassion. It screams love. It completely changes things. Through God’s eyes, grace is not tricky. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s freely given. Sometimes within our own humanness I think we tend to think of grace as a “bargain.” “You show me yours, and I’ll show you mine.” But it doesn’t work like that. Grace should be freely given. When we don’t extend a heart of grace, we are then met with the Lord’s sorrow..He knows we can do better. We can love better. Grace is healing. Healing to the one who gives & receives it. Grace is a big deal. Now, it’s perfectly okay if you’re going through a season where grace is difficult. I’m not perfect and believe me i’ve been there too. But I want to encourage you,, be grace to other people. “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Whatever was on your heart as you read this, the situation, person, conversation, whatever it may be, maybe it’s time to meet it with grace. Maybe, like how Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, you will meet it with grace too.
