This year of Grace looks nothing like I thought it would. I thought I’d be shoulder deep in God teaching me to have grace, to extend compassion. And He has, but what amazes me is that in these last six months, is He has shown me more His grace for me.
It is something that continues to blow me away.
In His showing and overwhelming me with His grace for me, I’m learning how to show grace to others. It’s still not easy. Honestly, it may never be. I believe that if it were easy He’d have nothing left to teach me, and there is a chance I’d take grace for granted.
That is something I never want to do.
As I look back over these six months I see the threads of grace that bind each moment together.
I’m realizing that this grace learning won’t be finished when the clock strikes 2012. He is just barely scratching the surface of how deep grace goes.
