31 Days of Gratitude: Grace

The past couple days have been filled with challenges and anxiety. God has been speaking to me and revealing some areas where I need to release to Him and trust.

Anxiety is very real, but it is based on fear and not faith. The reality is that the majority of our fears never ever happen. We spend so much time on terrifying what ifs.

Instead, what if we surrendered those fears and anxieties to God? What if we trusted Him with the most challenging, scary situations in our lives? What if we opened our eyes to the lessons in the challenges? Maybe even see some joy in the challenges?

What if we accepted His grace?

Grace is the free and undeserving favor He pours out onto us to intercede in our challenges, our struggles, our anguish, and heart cries.

God has been showing up time after time extending His grace in this situation I have been struggling with. His grace has nothing to do with my performance. Nothing. 

The painful lessons of growth that He is teaching me…fear, anxiety, performance, perfection are not of Him, nor what He desires for me.

Instead, I need to listen. To watch Him work. To have faith He’s got this. To wait on Him. To trust.

Embrace His grace.

Are you going through a challenging situation? Does life feel impossible? Are you focused on your mistakes, that you have messed up once again? Are you trying to fix something or someone but you just can’t seem to make it work? Are you trying to figure it all out?

You know what???

You don’t have to fix anything or figure it out.

Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5 NKJV

Like a free fall…let go and trust Him to extend grace and catch you. He shall bring it to pass.
