We’re so needy aren’t we? So needy for that sweet grace that surrounds us and yet we’re so oblivious to! Take a deep breath ~ it’s there in the air! Oh it might be polluted air because of man’s hand in it all but even in that messed up and un-pure air there is grace ‘cuz without it, taking that life-giving breath wouldn’t happen! Yet we’re so unaware of it aren’t we? Why would we think about it? Doesn’t it just go hand in hand with life itself ~ so daily ~ so always there? Yes, and we in our busy schedules don’t think about the mechanics of it all or how it works, we just live our life and take it so for granted! God’s grace is like that ~ so always there for our undeserving selves. It’s continually lavished on us moment by moment and yet we pull the wool over our spiritual eyes and fail to see it clearly for what it is. Full – out Grace somehow gets drowned out by the noise of our complaining, critical spirits. It’s always there for us, yet our appreciation for it gets left in the dust of our busy lives and in the pressure of our deadlines!
Ah ~ yes, beautiful soul ~ today, just take time to breath in the sweet grace of God’s beautiful surroundings, where the blessings lie hidden for the soul eyes of the faithful and those who walk in obedience, hearing the voice of God in their journey. It might well be a rough journey for you now but ~ if you just took a breath, grace is there for you and it’s in not just in the air but in all the little things of your world. Take time out to ponder it, appreciate it and be thankful for it. Soak in God’s grace today! Saturate your day with it and find joy in the moment ~ yes ~ even in this moment!
“For in Him we live and move and have our being.
“There is nothing but God’s grace. We walk upon it; we breathe it; we live and die by it; it makes the nails and axles of the universe.” — Robert Louis Stevenson
