My prayer with my family this morning was to exemplify the grace of God in our walk.
So while I was pulling in to work, I had a whole unit on my face. Did not want to go in, did not want to be there. I heard the Spirit say to me, “Do not despise the gifts of God”. Listen, that message snatched me in my place so quick. My job is absolutely a blessing to my family, and I definitely do thank God for it. In some moments, on some days, it can be so easy to put gratefulness on the back burner. Glory be unto God who reminds us of who He is, and how He has blessed us.
As the day went on, a couple of situations happened that really caused me to battle within. A battle of remembering my morning prayer and wanting to walk in that. To be honest, I just wanted to snap at some people today hunny. But glory be unto the Spirit that keeps us in our place and walking in the righteousness of God. He reminded me to extend the same grace that He gives me daily. No matter what I feel or how upset people make me.
On days like this though, I am sometimes so hard on myself. I recognize the fact that Holy Spirit keeps me, but I get frustrated that its not easier for me to not even get to a place where I am bothered by the things going on around me. Although the Spirit always keeps me and relieves my mind, the fact that it happens, even if only for a second, is something I desire even more growth on.
Once I got home, I heard in Spirit…
‘I know that you are not perfect. I did not create you to be, but my grace is sufficient enough to cover your imperfections.’ 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
God will not only tell you what to do, or teach you how to live, but He will make you an example. We are all imperfect people, striving to be made perfect in Christ. Some of our journeys are a little more bumpier than others. As Christ shows us grace and mercy time after time, remember that those around you need to be shown the same. I pray that this word encourages and blesses someone on today! Amen!
