Grace – I think about it constantly. It’s in my prayers every day. I read about it again just this morning in a perfectly timed email. Can we truly ever get to the bottom of it’s well? Can we define it’s meaning or understand it’s how? Sometimes I don’t realize it’s happening… then all of a sudden I see, “Oh Wow! This is a God-thing, He’s all in it and it’s so good!”
It’s not like I’m ever unaware that God walks ahead of me, orders the day and guides my path. But I’m human. I get caught up in the mundane, next thing, details of life. Stuff just happens. And then all of a sudden in-the-midst there’s a revelation that God knows my name. He’s actively doing something in my midst! Is it like that for anyone else? I talk to Him all day long, believe He hears me, then am completely blown over when I see Him miraculously moving mountains.
Just recently our family was asked if we could babysit a 9 month old… every Saturday. Add something new – really? Turns out this chubby little ray of sunshine pops in once a week and makes my mom smile! He makes us all laugh. He comes connected to a 4 year old brother and a young single mom who was in need of a better job. We recently discovered she just happens to be a CNA, previously working with elderly dementia patients. She is beginning to work with me in an hourly manner. 2 is better then 1.
Our big family has become a connection she needed. Her pre-schooler comes sometimes to play with my dad. They seem to relate with puzzles and ball rolling. Give and receive. God’s just doing His thing… slick and sneaky in the best possible way. He comes in the side door and if you let Him, steals your heart and proves again, with Me all things are possible. Grace every time.
“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and His rule. You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you. You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.” Matthew 5:3-5 The Message
