By Grace Alone

Posted by:

I love going to church for so many reasons. I always and I mean always discover things about myself that needed to be uncovered. It seems the World is not at peace with anyone. It is so disheartening to turn on the news or read in the paper the chaos that is inflicted upon another because they took too long in a checkout line up, or they didn’t use their blinker when they turned right. People are angry with the smallest of inconveniences. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger but it seems to me the little things that are killing us become our impatience and there is no strength for tolerance anymore!

In my life there has been so many things I have done that I cannot undo and in every selfish motive there is a cruelty that cloaks the wounded unnoticed drowning in a swimming pool of their own demanding agony. I’m not asking you to hide it away, and even when it’s impossible to figure out why God allows the pain to wrap its suffering around your soul, I hope you still see His Face in another.

I know I’m asking you to be patient with others and to please forgive me because some of us are not where we’re supposed to be yet. I hope it’s true that God can use broken things because I want to be re-claimed by His Grace that roars, I’m not broken beyond repair! You see my unworthiness but I hope He still sees, His Child!

This is my time and I’m going to live it sometimes broken, fallen and completely in need of every single second He spent on the Cross! Someday we will have to give an account when we stand before God, and I won’t even be able to lift my head up unless He steps in for me. I’ll be so glad to lay down every struggle, every mistake and every time my heart broke to see my Precious Children carry my choices. I am so grateful His Grace can cover me.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

When the secrets of your heart expose a mess where nothing seems black and white any more fitting neatly into the closet of your life and you weren’t strong enough to be everything they thought you should be, don’t dress in the attitudes of thrown away hand-me-downs! Instead put on God’s Grace not allowing your mistakes to become the wardrobe for your life because when Heaven bent down I seen myself in the Nail Prints of His Hands – Momma T
