From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another." John 1:16
Most of the time we refer to the gift of salvation as a gift of grace. But God’s grace also comes in tiny little packages marked "FREE GIFT" inside. Each day God presents gifts of His grace. Most of the time we take them for granted.
Take some time to appreciate some of these gifts:
freedom to be real quiet moments a friend who listens a sunrise the brilliant colors of spring knowing you’re loved a child’s hug
Start looking at each of these as little dreams come true. God’s dream for us unfolds in thousands of little ways through everyday graces He places in our lives.
Too often we are just too busy to notice. Or, we are so eager to have the big dream come true we forget to watch for little things that are the dream coming true. Most Christians can trust God for Heaven – Eternity with Him, but we can’t trust Him for everyday life. Start seeing and living differently…it will turn your life around!
Prayer: Thank You God for Your abounding grace, for the tremendous free gift of salvation and for the thousands of little graces You send my way each day.
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
