It's All Grace

Amazing things can happen when you allow the Lord to work in your life.

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” Philippians 4:13.

Inside the house, the kitchen sink was full of dishes, and the laundry baskets were piled high with dirty clothes. The floors were full of crumbs, and the windows had enough fingerprints to fill the files of the FBI. Outside, the lawn looked like a herd of horses needed to chew it down, and the children’s toys were scattered from one end of the farm to the other. Company was scheduled to arrive for supper, and the meal was not yet prepared. I laughed to myself, wondering which of these tasks I would actually accomplish in addition to our homeschooling day.

Thinking about all the work made me tired and unable to even know where to start. Looking to God, I felt Him gently urge me to begin. I did, and somehow a miracle began. The day became supernatural, and I literally felt like angels were working with me to get every job accomplished. There were no interruptions, no accidents, and no fights. Nothing was lost, and nothing broke. I flew from one chore to the next, while keeping an enthusiastic smile and teaching my children their lessons. I couldn’t believe the amount of work I accomplished that day, and I’ve never had another one quite like it.

Sometimes the numerous issues in our spiritual walk also seem daunting. We wonder how a family member will ever be saved, why we keep falling into the same old sins, and if we can ever forgive other’s thoughtless remarks. Temptations and trials attempt to render us impotent. We become discouraged and give up in despair before we ever begin to live for the Lord. You don’t need to live under the weight of sin and pain. God sent His Son, Jesus, to deliver us from a defeated life. Jesus arose and left an empty grave as proof that we have access to the same mighty power that raised Him from the dead (Ephesians 1:19). All your burdens can be lifted by the miracle of His grace.

Is life too heavy to bear right now? Jesus says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28.

Give it ALL to HIM and watch HIM do it through you.

    Yes, I have been there too, and also experienced that peculiar grace of God. Also, I am now having the experience of satan throwing my “unmotherly” attitudes and actions at me, from long ago. I know its under the blood, but it is a struggle. Victory has been won, and will be mine, but for now I am in the battle to the end. Looking unto Jesus, Heb 12:2

      stand strong Gammy as HE nailed your sins onto that cross and put them UNDER the blood. Our sins have been blotted out – meaning it cannot be seen – they are far as the east is from the west…It is satan who accuses and causes blame and guilt. When we put our armor on, we STAND IN CHRIST. To stand in Christ, is to stand in VICTORY! As a believer, we have NOTHING to fear! Romans 8:31…If God be for us, then who can be against us!
