Drowning in Grace

Sinking: go down below the surface of something.
Grace: free unmerited favor.

"If grace is an ocean we're all sinking."

We are all going below the surface of unmerited favor - we are being over taken by Gods unmerited favor. Lord sink us - me - in you grace today.

Thankful Thursday - Veterans Day

Today I am thankful for...
...Veterans, that have sacrificed for my freedom.
... man and women that sacrifice today for my freedom.
... families that have and are sacrificing for my freedom.
... a day to remember what they have done and what they do.
... the country that I live in.
... a God that is in control of all.
... grace, and the fact that if it was an ocean we would all be drowning in it.

Wordless Wednesday - Not so Wordless

A Wordless Wednesday that is not so wordless. I was really hit with this this week...
In John chapter 4 Jesus goes to Galilee and an official with a sick son comes and finds him. The official asks Jesus to come heal his son, and this is Jesus's response. John 4:50 "Go...your son will live..." then in the same verse you see the officials response. "...The man took Jesus at his word and departed."

Okay "The man took Jesus at his word and departed." How often do I ask God to do something and do I really take Him and His word... not very often honestly... do I really believe that God is going to do what He said He is going to do and for that matter do I do what He is asking me to do? Do I have unbelief - yes! 

Lord forgive my unbelief. I want to just take you at your word and go. Lord give me the opportunity to take you at your word today and to depart with that word - in faith - that you will do it.

My Man Rocks

My man rocks because even though he got up at 4:30am to go to work after only about 6 hours of sleep he watched all 3 kids (and number 3 has not been the best mood today) while I went to Book Club and got a much needed break. Thank you babe I really needed that.
