The Speed of Grace

Updated: Mar 16, 2021



As I turn the calendar to the year 2021, it occurs to me that I am approaching the 10th year I began my battle with cancer. I remember thinking, “I want to walk thru this situation with as much grace as I’ve seen other woman do.”


It was important to keep HOPE alive and to give GLORY to God with each step of my journey.



 

2 Corinthians 12:9

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.


 

Then the year 2020 came and played a major part in all of our lives. I wanted to stand on the mountain top and declare all the injustices that were happening in my life. Loss of parents, loss of a job, loss of friendships, the (near) loss of my marriage and loss of memory.

Confusing and unreal stressful situations became my every day battle ground.


It was during this time that I held fast to what I knew to be true . . . I had to readjust my attitude and protect my heart from bitterness to take root.


I again asked God to give me the grace

[to forgive and ask for forgiveness] to walk thru the valley.

I watched as God’s hands worked as the “Master Potter” against the hardness of this old clay pot. The fire continues to refine and polish my soul as I mature in faith. I have learned that feelings [emotions] are not truth. Emotions are fickle and they change without any notice at all.


Mature and learn the fruit of self-control by learning the Word of God.

Remember - Celebrate your progress and thank God for it!

Ephesians 4 Unity and Maturity in the Body of Christ 4 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.



The speed of God’s grace

can be seen in His patience with each one of us



 


How much time do we really have on this earth? How long will it take for you to come to the Saving Grace that is in Our Lord Jesus Christ?

2 Peter 3:9

9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.



Blessings to you my friend ~
