i want to grasp every moment with purpose, grace and hope
sometimes life grasps us and we find ourselves in unforeseen situations that can devastate and shake us to the core
sometimes the never ending pile of washing grasps us and overwhelms us
sometimes the pressure of performing and perfection grasps us and threatens to overshadow who we really are
this week two of my friend’s kids have been in hospital, one for an emergency and one for tests
this week i had another of my specialist appts to find out what i’m allergic too and what is causing my significant health issues
this week my parents had two major *things* going on
this week Jesus is with us, always
He never sleeps, He never averts His gaze from us, He never lets go
so i grasp tight onto His reality and His presence
i grasp on with hope and grace, living out hope and grace to those around me
aware that all of my life has purpose, the good days and the bad days, in the shine and the rain
and that His promise is that in all things He will work out for good
in everything, He is with me
life with either grasp me and control me
or i will grasp life and live it for the glory of God
More than needing schedules and productivity, this week will need a Saviour and prayer. God’s not asking me to produce– He’s asking me to pray. God’s not asking me to climb ladders — He’s asking me to kneel and let go. Right there at the mirror, right at the beginning, the week begins to unfurl in slow, in hope. And that’s what I whisper into the mirror: His grace will be more than just sufficient — His grace is guaranteed to actually save. Time, me, the week, all redeemed and miracles happen in mirrors and to people we know. When we know Christ, we always know how things are going to go — always for our good and always for His glory. @ A Holy Experience
in my weakness, i grasp
in my strength, i grasp
