Got Grace? Grace covers so much pain in our lives!
With grace, you can…
Forgive more quickly, let go of expectations, stop disappointment in its tracks, get over an addiction, end neediness, stop desperation, say goodbye to dependency, heal anger, heal heartache, and so much more!
How can grace do all this?
Well, grace itself isn’t very strong, but God’s grace is P-O-W-E-R-F-U-L!!!
When we ask God to give us His grace, to turn us on and be a light for Him, then he can fill us with His grace! He awakens us with His Spirit, and we become more aware of His presence.
Grace becomes your super power!
Being awakened by the Spirit helps us to work smarter in our purpose and helps bring more people to God!
It doesn’t just happen with a flip of a switch though. We need to want it, desire it and ask God to fill us with the desire to have grace. Once we ask Him for this grace, He gives us plenty of opportunities to develop our grace skills.
Yep, it’s a skill, and we have to practice it.
So know that when you obediently pray for grace and pray help you give grace to others, you will get some interesting opportunities to work through…
The kids may wear you down a little faster. Hubby might get on your nerves. You may get tailgated more. You might have trouble with a client. You name it; God will allow you to work on grace skill building.
Working on your grace skill is exciting and hard work! God wants you to be stronger, wiser and better! So prepare yourself to grow in grace.
When we seek grace from God, we can receive grace from God. When we receive grace from God, we can share grace to others. This is beautiful, wonderful and amazing. God is so good!
Giving grace to others is not the only important thing to note here. You must also give grace to yourself.
You are human.
You will screw up, choose poorly, make mistakes and do the wrong thing. It happens. It’s nothing to beat yourself up over. Just take responsibility, ask forgiveness for your poor choice and move along.
Choose grace over worry. Choose grace over anger. Choose grace over sorrow.
God’s got this! Pray for grace!

“Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny. Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.” Psalm 73:23-26
