Google gives you possibilities. God’s Word gives you certainties.
I saw this posted by K-Love Radio on Facebook a few days ago. It reminded me of the way our three year-old daughter prays before we eat. It started one day when my mother asked her to “Say grace” before our dinner. I wondered if she knew what my mother meant, as my husband and I don’t usually use those words. We simply ask the children to pray. She did not ask what my mother meant. She just bowed her head, closed her eyes and prayed, “Heavenly Fader, thank you for your grace. Thank you for our food. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
“Thank you for your grace.”
I thought about those words over and over again. Jesus told us to pray to the father to “give us our daily bread” but often I think we miss the very fact that he is our daily bread. His spirit, his grace, is what we need for the day. Yes Lord, give us our daily bread. Give us grace for today.
Why is it that it often takes a person to die for others to consider what they said while they lived? Don’t wait. Consider your loved ones words today.
Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?”
But the temple he had spoken of was his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
God is not calling you to do the impossible. He is calling you to do the possible. Commit to do the possible and trust God to do the impossible.
My oldest son to me:
“You could be the president of the League of Awesome! Twice removed.”
… A Blurb of NO grace.
All I need to desire is Jesus. Pursuing Him is the only pursuit for perfection I need.
Striving for perfection? Falling short?
The only true way you can aim for perfection is to aim for Christ. Aim to reveal the love of Christ to others. And when you fall short (and we all fall short), aim to reveal His humble heart. Desire perfection by desiring Christ.
You will find that even your imperfections become part of His perfect plan.
