The Awesomeness Of Grace

I have had moments in my life that I question the existence of an Almighty supernatural being. Those are the times I literally take matters into my hands and blame the consequences of my wrongs on myself. My self-righteous self could commit a sin at those times and blame whatever misfortune I encounter on the sin I committed.

Then, I used to tell myself that the universe operates under a rule, one gets as much as one gives, nothing less, nothing more. Grace didn't make any sense to me, hard work was everything. Good thing I got saved. Salvation, sweet salvation.

Get this, I wasn’t a bad person but there is just this huge difference when you compare the life you were living before discovering the awesomeness of grace and when you thought you were capable of vindicating yourself of every fault. I can’t explain enough how pleasurable it is to understand that the works of my hand don’t necessarily justify the end.

My toddler is so active that I find it hard to keep up or keep an eye on her at all times. She moves round the house in a flash and throws major tantrums should she be made to sit in a place. I try my best to make the house safe by taping every sharp edge, removing small metal and plastic objects that are easy to swallow and putting sharp things where she can’t reach. Amazingly, I overlook some unknowingly and there are times I have caught her just on the brink of swallowing some dangerous objects but I get to see her just before she harms herself.

This always makes me remember who is manning this boat called life. Our human strength is so limited but we will fare better if we understand just how much God wants to be involved in our lives and day to day activities. We however term some of these things little mercies forgetting all the complications we could have faced were we left on our own or were we to rely on our human strength.

Give him a chance dearie, there is only so much you can do on your own. Tap into his goodness and enjoy a grace filled life.

 Have a beautiful week.
