grace {and a giveaway}

grace.

it’s such a lovely word.

we love to sing of grace, to speak of it.

to experience it.

my husband taught a sunday school lesson on the necessity of the atonement yesterday. about the curse that was placed upon our fallen world because of the first man and woman.

the broken, empty world in need of such grace.

but grace is not just for our redemption. it’s for our everyday.

this grace that we love to sing of, to speak of, to experience- it’s ours. a free gift from the Father who loves us more than we can fathom.

Paul speaks of this grace in his letter to the Corinthian believers. he says:

 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them —yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   -1 Cor. 15:10, NIV

 

this grace that redeemed us- this grace that set us free? it’s the same grace that makes us who we are, today and every day. no matter how hard i try, no matter how much i work, i can’t beat grace. and that’s the most comforting part- i don’t have to. i don’t have to try harder. i don’t have to work more. because of grace.

it’s by the grace of God I am what I am.

that’s what this lovely redeemed jewelry set from {in}courage does- it’s a subtle reminder of that everyday grace. grace dangling from your ears, wrapped around your wrist, fastened to your keys.

and {in}courage has generously given me the opportunity to give away one of these sets. yep, a giveaway!

    I have recently been in a Bible Study for parents centered around the book Give Them Grace…Learned that because of the grace that has been shown to me I should also show grace to others. Also that a Godly life is not all about rules and regulations, but a true relationship with God that will allow us to show grace to those around us…

    I have recently been in a Bible Study centered around the book for parenting called Give Them Grace…Learned a lot of different things about parenting with grace, but the main idea is that because of the grace that has been shown to me I can show grace to others (my kids).

    I’m so thankful for God’s grace in my life! I experienced grace this past weekend when some people at church played with my wiggly toddler so I could participate in adult fellowship. The kindness they showed both to her and myself brought tears to my eyes! What a great giveaway. 🙂

    I experience God’s grace everyday! I need it to parent my kids the way He wants me too! Without Him and His grace, I couldn’t be the mom I am!

    I am so thankful for the grace that God has shown us by sending His Son to die for us. What a precious gift of Eternal Life we are all given if we only choose to accept.
