we have the gift of grace that is greater than anything we could ever imagine. it’s huge. we can live in perfect peace and freedom because of the perfect grace given to us through our Father in heaven and His son Jesus.
and yet, we still live in a constant state of anxiety and judgement on ourselves. why would we live like this when we already have it all? it’s like a girl winning the lottery and yet still lives under a bridge because she doesn’t know how to cash her check.
wait… but it’s more than that. it’s like a girl winning the lottery, still lives under a bridge, doesn’t know how to cash her check because she doesn’t think she can or think she is physically able to.
as a daughter of Christ, i should be living in HIS freedom, with a life full of love and peace that surpasses all understanding, living each day to His glory. and yet there are so many days when i completely reject His grace because i don’t think i deserve it, or i can’t accept it because of my selfishness & pride. have you ever heard that you can’t accept another person’s forgiveness until you forgive yourself? it’s the same with grace.
you won’t be able to accept the grace God has for you today until you let go of all the pressures and judgements you’re putting on yourself today.
so be it.
ps. speaking of grace… i’ve LOVED this blog called Chatting at the Sky that is going through 31 days of grace in the month of October. it is definitely a “sweet find” 🙂 check it out!
