Morning guys….I hope you have had a great weekend and that you are gearing up for Monday! I’m still feeling a bit under the weather, but really wanted to share this with you this morning.
This morning I wanted to talk about grace. No, not the kind that you say before you eat a meal. No, not the kind that when you enter a room, you seem flawless. Grace.
I’m talking about the kind of grace that when He looks upon us, He sees this human being that He created and loves, no matter what. That’s grace. Unmerited favor. In the midst of a messy life, grace looks past that and sees beauty.
It’s not something that I can earn. Nor is there anyone really deserving. It’s given out of love.
A letter to Grace.
Hey, it’s me. Oh I’m alright, a little weary sometimes, but better than most. Can I talk to you for a minute? Where do I start?? Life just seems crazy doesn’t it. I feel busy all of the time and most days I can’t remember if I have even talk to You. This throws my balance off.
It’s been crazy at work, tense almost.
Friendships have come and gone.
Relationships have started and ended.
Dreams have been squashed.
Thoughts have come and gone.
Focus has been lost.
Getting older seems to be……um….difficult.
The world is dark.
What does it all mean?
And then it hits me. Am I supposed to love it here? Is it supposed to be easy? No and no.
Some of the things that I desire I may never see come to pass. Will I be a wife? Will I be a good help-mate? Will I be a mother? How have I affected people?
I long for a good, meaningful relationship and yet here I am, alone.
This is when Grace steps in. Grace that reminds me that I am loved and that I am wanted. Grace that says, “Brandi, I know your dreams. I know how crazy life is. I know that your focus gets off track. I know that you long for a strong man that will lead you. I know that you have been hurt. I know everything about you and love you to the ends of the earth.”
Grace that says no matter how messed up you think that you are, I think that you are worth dying for.
Grace that reminds me of how blessed I am, in spite of what I think that I don’t have.
I hope you have an amazing day!
