Grace is unconditional favor that floods your soul when you least expect it, favor that you didn’t earn and that you don’t need to earn. Realizing the power of grace has been the biggest factor that sped up my recovery this year in absolutely incredible ways. Recovery went from a stagnant, slowly moving pool, to a waterfall of lessons, grace, hardship, and victory!
Grace is truly a gift, a gift from God. It’s not something I’ve been good at showing myself in the past couple years. I had to realize God’s grace first, to look at God, and realize just what grace actually means for you and for me Do you ever just kind of stand back and look at life and think, ‘Wow, I’ve been given so much grace, I don’t even know how to express my gratefulness?’
2016 was a year of truly realizing God’s grace. I grew up singing, ‘Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me…’ But I’m not sure I can that I really knew what God’s grace to me was.
