Ever had a moment where you were suddenly so very aware of how much you really have changed and grown?
That’s what I love about journaling. You have your written story you can look back on. Tonight, I was searching through a notebook I have written Scripture in. During a difficult time in my life, this book was my lifeline. It reminded me I was not alone. Not once. Not ever.
As I made my way through the book copying down favorite verses for a scripture box, I came across this:
How amazing is this? Coincidence that I should stumble upon this as I write 31 days on grace? I don’t think so.
Almost two years ago I wrote this. It was shortly after I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and was fighting the exhaustion. I was working a stressful job with only a few weeks left before I would embark on a new chapter in my life with a different organization.
Despite the challenges I faced, I knew to cling to His grace. It is still what steadies me and pulls me through the difficult moments.
Since the almost two years that I penned those simple yet profound words in my Scripture journal which were really lessons for my soul, I can recall countless moments of grace.
Tonight, I worked on a scripture box filled with words of His promises of love, mercy, peace, hope, and grace. Tomorrow, I will take it to work to sit on my desk. As a visual person, it will be my tangible reminder He is always with me. In moments where I need steadied, I will have His words at my fingertips to remind me that I am exactly where He needs me.
…for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go… Joshua 1:9
