It’s Ash Wednesday the traditional start of the fasting season called Lent. As I begin this 40 day journey I am given a starting word:
“Grace” I am reminded that I am called to understand at least three things about grace.
1. Grace cannot be earned. It can only be realized and received with thankfullness. Anyone who desires it can have it.
2. Grace is God doing for me what I cannot do for myself. That does not mean there’s is nothing for me to do. I must do what I can.
3.Grace doesn’t kick in until I stop struggling to do things I cannot do. Struggling in areas beyond my control is called pride.
I want God’s grace. So today I am taking this word to my prayer list and seeking to realize where and how I need to realize and receive the working of His grace.
Today’s question: what is one area in which you recognize the grace of God at work in your life?
