What Grace Looks Like

Left on my own, I am nothing. But my Savior doesn’t leave me there. He meets me with grace.

grace poured out

When I am weary, He offers me rest. 

When I am crying, He catches each tear. 

When I am weak, He is my strength. 

When I am angry, He bades me give it to Him.

When I am thirsty, He offers me drink from His life-giving well. 

When I am hungry, He fills me with His own body.

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ: Though He was rich, for your sake He became poor, so that by His poverty you might become rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:9)

When I am hurting, He soothes my soul. 

When I feel unworthy, He calls me beloved. 

When I am blind, He sees for me.

When I can’t take another step, He carries me. 

When I am broken, He mends me.

When I don’t know the way, He guides me.

When I sin, He disciplines and redirects me so I might remain on the path of righteousness and abundant life. 

When I feel ugly, He renames me beautiful. 

When I fear, He delivers me.

When my days stretch dark before me, He provides the light. 

When I don’t know words to pray, He intercedes for me. 

When I know only sorrow, He offers me joy. 

When I am dead in my sins, He gives me everlasting life. 

The Lord breathes life into these bodies of dust and bids us an eternity with Him.

This is grace.

Reflection: What word(s) would you use to describe grace?

Linking with Lisa-Jo where a crowd writes uninhibited for 5 minutes (or a few more) on a given topic. It is a wonderful exercise in letting the words flow. Click the button (icon) to check out more posts or consider linking up yourself. Today’s word is my favorite: “Grace.”
