Awesome Grace

So you messed up again and this time really badly! God’s offer of grace still stands for that! Thing is, are you willing to accept it? Then just straight out accept it, but at the same time remember He’s not offering grace for a re-run but just for now! We can’t live with the idea that we can redo just because we’re covered by His grace. Yeah, I get it, that some things are just too difficult to give up and so we hang on to them but I also get that He understands our frailty. He really does! He knows the struggle of our weak and fleshly humanity and how easy it is to succumb to its pitfalls and fall into the traps so readily made available to us. Our weaknesses are just so relentlessly there all the time and If it happens again His grace will totally meet us right there once again for that time, just as it always does!


Let’s get it though, that His desire and His grace is sufficient to totally free us once and for all from whatever has us bound tightly. Accept His grace for that too! His grace totally exceeds the darkness of this wretched world and covers anything we could ever do. We have to want it to cover us though, so decide today to renew your heart and your mind with His help. Let’s change directions in our mind, heart and souls and be freed from the pitfalls that take us down!

“…But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” — Romans 5:20

Broken Shells

So when you’re washed up on shore in a heap of debris and broken shell, and when there’s nothing left but empty, you’re still sitting in God’s grace ‘cuz His grace runs on empty! He gives something for nothing all the time and when we’re so undeserving of even that next breath, He makes it happen just because He’s God and just because He’s all about you. His love is lavish and His mercy extensive and it’s all over you in that heap of brokenness. So, when there’s no where to go….where to from here? A good choice is right into His arms of protection! Ask Him to fix it and guide you in your next thought, your next choice and your next step and know that’s it’s all ok ~ it’s alright to be empty and broken ‘cuz that’s where we can be repaired and refilled and recycled for His glory. You ~ broken, beautiful soul, are right where He wants you. So begin today to reprogram with the One who made you. Oh there might be loss in the healing and restoring process but growing closer to God through it all is our greater fortune! Rest for now in His healing presence and trust Him to fix it…

Hosea 6:1 “Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.”

Neck Deep In Disobedience


So needy for grace today? So needy for just some assurance that it’s ok and it’s alright and nothing will touch you that isn’t God filtered and God ordered and God ordained? Yeah, we’ve all been there, and we know that sometimes God allows the bad to save us from the worst of stuff. Ponder Jonah the Prophet and his story of rebellion against a God, who had given specific orders. Think of the stench he was allowed to be swallowed up into in order to survive the wild storm on the sea ~ all because of his rebel spirit. Yeah, for sure, one would really wonder what the worst of the two evils really was? The belly of the fish threatening to digest or the wicked waves that threatened to pull him under for the last time? Ahhh, but His sovereign God knew and because he wanted his attention, He orchestrated it all and in Jonah’s disobedience he had to struggle with not only himself and his bad attitude, his precarious situation and his hardened heart but his neck-deep consequences of sheer rebellion. He kept getting in deeper! His ‘On The Run” caught up with him at God’s command and yet, in God’s mercy and grace, his pit of despair became his transport to safety. Oh, yeah, we may find ourselves in neck- deep in the thick of bad choices and we may find ourselves being swallowed by unpleasant surroundings, but we can always be sure, God has His eye on us and He cares, oh yes, he cares and even in the pit, He’s got you and He desires nothing more than your undivided attention. Jonah couldn’t escape or get away from God or disobey Him without consequence, but he never found himself beyond the reach of God’s grace. Nor do we, not even for a moment in our journey. So ~ On the brink of drowning Jonah prayed for help, for life, and for God’s presence to be renewed in his life and God heard! He rescued him and used him in spite of his hardened heart and his anger.
Know today, that God doesn’t need perfection but just a willingness to be obedient. He desires to snatch you from the jaws of death and pit of despair where you find yourself today. Let Him come to your rescue and be your salvation, and just as He managed Jonah’s situation let Him manage yours!

“I sank beneath the waves and waters closed over me. Seaweed wrapped itself around my head and I sank down to the very roots of the mountains. I was imprisoned in the earth, whose gates lock and shut forever. But you O Lord my God, snatched me from the jaws of death!”
Jonah 2: 5, 6
