Gratitude and humility are overwhelming me. Pouring down upon me much like the incessant rain that is falling outside my window.
I know that long before this earth existed I was on God’s mind. I was and remain an object of His focus. In Him and through Him, all the broken pieces of my life have been made whole and holy. I bow my head in humility for I know that I deserve none of it. While He has never taken His focus from me, my eyes have not held the same gaze. Yet, still, grace and mercy flow…
I know that I have been placed here and now, much like Esther, for such a time as this. I have been given opportunities to live the life of faith that I profess. In Him and through Him I am equipped for the task. He supplies all my needs, all my strength to accomplish the task He has set before me. I fall to my knees in humility knowing I deserve none of this. While He has the task prepared, I have chosen my own endeavors. Yet, still, grace and mercy flow…
I know that I have been loved completely and sacrificially. Loved to such a depth that I cannot fathom where the beginning differs from the ending. I fall to my face in humility knowing I deserve none of this. While He loves me beyond my comprehension, I fail to love beyond my own irritation. Yet, still, grace and mercy flow…
As the raindrop falls freely from the sky, so does this grace and mercy fall from Heaven.
I cannot stop it.
I don’t want to stop it.
Without it my existence would be unbearable.
With it my existence is given new life.
