As I immersed myself in God’s word, I realized that giving someone grace was not just a nice thing to do, it was a direct reflection of God. God gives us grace without expecting anything in return. It cannot be earned or taken away. God grants us grace because He loves us even when we are not following His will. How was this possible? Unbelievable right? Grace in itself is an amazing example of the goodness of God. I reflected on how God has granted me grace and I felt compelled to challenge myself to stop complaining about what someone once did and focus on who they are in the present. Too often we do not allow people to change and grow. We judge them by their past actions but expect others to see past who we once were. Whether it is a damaged friendship or a misunderstanding with a stranger, it can be difficult to allow God to shine through you. Forgiveness, grace and sharing in the sincere apology is not for the recipient but for you. Don’t get me wrong, this is a difficult task but I promise it is worth it.
With the losses that I have suffered in the last three years (Mackenzie Grace & Madison Grace), I have learned that petty drama and meaningless arguments simply aren’t worth my time. I would rather spread positive vibes instead of negative energy. I challenge each of you to give someone grace by letting go of whatever anger or frustration you may have towards that individual. By God’s grace we are saved!
