So let’s begin another new day by accepting God’s grace to begin again! While we’re at it, let’s stuff our souls and our hearts and our pockets with excess to lavishly spend on others throughout the days ahead.
It’s so daily isn’t it ~ This giving of grace? So all the time and so everywhere and on everyone? The wrong thing said, the rude remark, the uncaring soul, the friend that didn’t care ~ and the list goes on and on and on, and then we take a look at our inside selves to see just as much “uncalled for” behavior from ‘self’ and we know that we need grace as much as they! Remember for all the misbehaved offenses, that come there is an accuser of the brethren, a father of lies and the instigator, who messes things all up with chaos and confusion. He twists our arms and our minds into thinking it’s the person causing the grief and takes great delight when we hurt and pin the blame on others rather than himself. So, when the pain sears and rips through your heart like a knife, turn it over to God and allow His mercy to find you and strengthen you. Allow His grace to mellow you and empty your beautiful soul of bitterness, anger and grief only to fill it with more of Him and His care, His healing and His sweet, unconditional love. Find a solace there in His rest and a peace there in His protection. Ahh, now you can empty your pockets of all that redemptive grace that you’ve stored away just for this special moment. Lavishly spend it on that poor soul in need and let them go. Ah ~ that’s where your blessing hides ~ right there in your freedom from the entanglement of it all. So ~ sweet and beautiful soul ~ Let it go and begin another week of freedom, walking with A God who truly cares.
Matthew 6: 14 & 15
“For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
Ephesians 4: 32
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
