It's All Grace

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

Coal Miner’s Light

God’s grace is like a coal miners light.

Imagine placing a coal miners light on top of your head and turning it on.  If you look down, where does the light go?  It lights the path where you will walk or stand.  Wherever your looking, your body will soon follow.

It gives all the light you need to see only where you are going and where you are standing.

*Standing – is a postures that denotes perseverance; we stand firm and safe, upheld by the power of the enemy.  And those who have hope for the glory of God hereafter, have enough to rejoice in now!

The miners light only lights the way.  It does not give light behind you or even to the side of you.  We only need grace for where we are standing and HIS grace is tailor made for every situation in our lives.

Romans 5:2  “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Needing Repair?

What do you have that’s in the repair shop?  When a fractured leg is healed it must walk again.  When a damaged zipper is mended it must zip again.  When a sagging gate is fixed it must swing again.  AND when a broken heart is mended it must give again. Psalm 147:3

Living in this world and experiencing what life brings to our doorstep, many times we are marred by experiences, choices we’ve made or even choices others have made that have surely affected our lives.  Physical challenges ring our doorbell, while emotional trauma seems as though it snuck in through the back door, not realizing that it was US who left the back door open!

Although life brings with it “tailor made” trials to grow and stretch us, the Lord wants to use it into making us something beautiful.  Don’t quit or give up as if your legs have been cut off, the wind has been knocked out of you, etc., yet ask the Lord for the strength and grace to get up and keep going.
