My journey of faith has included many missteps and tumbles. When I glance in the rearview mirror of my life, I am at times tempted to spend too much time reviewing past mistakes or grievances. I believe this is a common tactic of the enemy of our souls. Dwelling on past regrets and shame can keep me, and you, from doing what God has designed us to do ‘today,’ and creates doubts that keep us from moving forward.
Mother Teresa said so wisely,
Where man has failed, God will find a way—
If we ask him.
This post is the sixth in a series I entitled, “Grace Speaks…” While this will be my final post in this series, I will undoubtably return to the topic of ‘Grace’ in the future. God’s grace is probably the most important aspect of who I am and who I desire to be:
One who embraces the undeserved but freely offered gift of God’s grace.
One who realizes God isn’t surprised or discouraged when I fall.
One willing to ask for and accept God’s forgiveness.
One willing to grasp the helping hand of Grace.
One willing to extend God’s grace to others.
May your days be filled with an abundant measure of God’s grace…
