Recently, I got a couple of days to myself.
To this I am very grateful!
But I didn’t leave home in the most dignified way…as I was so perplexed in getting myself ready. In the rushing around…I hollered.
I do what I do because God has called me to do it. He equips me in the most profoundest ways, but I tried to do it all by myself this time. I wasn’t paying special attention to the quiet promptings of the Holy Spirit.
As I was quietly settled on my plane with my music and book in hand…God spoke.
He spoke to me through a song I had just downloaded…
“Your Grace finds me.”
I had been battling these feelings of guilt all morning along with justification like a tennis match inside my head.
That is exactly what the enemy wanted me to do. He wanted me to justify why I hollered…why I was short with those I love. I am good at justifying….how abut you? At the same time feeling guilt over the whole incident.
The Holy Spirit spoke gently once I sat still for two minutes.
He said, “Yes, you over-reacted. Yes, all they wanted was a hug, but I give grace. And the best part, Mama, you can start over”.
“I’m breathing in your grace – I’m breathing out your Praise! Forever…forever.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
I have got to be able to receive the Grace that God gives, but in the next breath be able to Praise the Almighty God for the ability to see my faults and know that He covers them with His wings.
That is the humbling place I sit a lot in recent days.
I am in much need of grace that only comes from my heavenly Father. Hopefully, I will come to the well of Jesus this week and allow Him to fill me with Grace, but also wisdom and love for those moments when I don’t.
His Grace finds me when I allow it to.
How about you? Do you see His grace? Does it find you? Are you breathing out His Praise in the midst of it all?
