thoughts on grace

I’ve been thinking about grace a lot lately.  I guess you could say that I had a recent “aha” moment that started the wheels turning on the topic.


Over the past season, there’s been a lot of days where I have my rather long to do list and only manage to cross a few things off.  You would think that I could get a whole lot more done.  My mind would travel back to the beginning of 2009 when I was leading a DTS, maintaining my blog, being a wife and mother, photographing TTH projects in the communities, hosting people for dinner, and so on.  I was doing so much.  So imagine my surprise as I’ve felt like keeping my house clean and putting dinner on the table is about all I can do in one day.  It’s been frustrating.  Then, I felt that still small voice say, “You haven’t had the grace for all of that in this season.”  That was the “aha,” the moment when it all made sense.

We all go through different seasons in our lives.  I love how God gives us just what we need when we need it.  I think I’m beginning to see just how powerful grace is and how deep it is to understand.  It’s a short word with so much meaning.  And so I lean on the grace God is extending for this moment, this season in my life, knowing that His wisdom is far above my own.  How are you leaning on His grace in this moment?
