There are several meanings of the word GRACE, one of which is ‘unmerited Divine assistance given to humans’ (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). It is freely given and filled with numerous blessings. It cannot be earned, stolen, nor is it based on our worthiness. GRACE …. just is simply GRACE with no attachments, surrounding us, waiting for us to be aware of GRACE, experience it, and use it.
Grace can be in the near fall you almost took when you climbed on the ladder, or in the illness that everyone else caught but you did not, or in all the people who love and care for you, and of course in the many blessings that are in your life everyday. Some days, it might show up unexpectedly when a dear friend you have been thinking about calls just to say hello or a little one runs up to you with a tight hug wrapped around your legs.
Our response to GRACE is to live our days here on earth showing grace to others with a sense of gratitude, generosity and kind gentleness with those we come in contact with. Our heart and soul can be filled with as much GRACE as we can be aware of. There is no limit. But we must indeed return it to others in our world in all ways.
“Life is measured in love and positive contributions and moments of grace” ( Carly Fiorina, American business woman and author).
Write down your moments of GRACE each day for five days and then review at the end of that time. I am sure you will find “Amazing Grace”.
