is often a blessing in disguise. Or sometimes it is simply Grace being poured out in plain sight.
Often without warning, without a big fanfare it just happens — Grace appears — and maybe even brings a little smile to our face. Sometimes it even speaks loud and clear to us.
Do you ever feel small, insignificant, troubled, dismayed, scared, weak or just too troubled to go on? Yeah? Maybe the better question is: “Have you ever NOT felt that way?”
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” ~2 Cor 12:9-10
Often times what we need is right in front of us — and
sometimes every.single.time we just need to open our eyes to it. Grace most often appears when we feel at our weakest, when we feel lost and when we feel hopeless.
Grace is sufficient. Grace gives us strength in the midst of our weakness.
Grace is always there. It is ours for the taking.
And sometimes, just sometimes…Grace appears when we least expect it, in the most unlikely places.
May His Grace cover all those flaws we so easily see in ourselves so that His beauty can shine through each one of us.
BTW…the picture at the top is what appeared when I lifted off the wooden letters I had spray painted for my kitchen. My son thought it was so cool looking he immediately took a picture and said, “there is GRACE when you least expect it!” He then proceeded to tell me I needed to make it my Facebook cover picture. You never know what you’ll find underneath it all!
