Sunday Thoughts : “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me! I once was lost but now am found, I was blind, but now I see!” These beautiful words make me tear up every time I sing them with acknowledgment of the heavy & incredible truth they represent! ❤️🙌🏽 I don’t ever want to take the grace of God for granted but ya girl is human so, unfortunately I do sometimes. That got me thinking — whyyy is it so easy to take something for granted until I really need it? Or maybe, it’s not until I lose it?
When I’m sick, I tell myself I can’t wait until I’m healthy, but when I’m healthy, I rarely stop to think about how thankful I am for my health! The same goes with a great job or loving friends/family or a supportive partner— it’s so easy to take any or all of those for granted when things are going well! GAH! How fickle/self-focused can humans be!? In short, A LOT. This week, I challenge you to spend time in gratitude. Get lost in it. Write a list and then write another one. I sure am. I honestly didn’t write this because Thanksgiving is this week... that’s a genuine coincidence! 😊
Also, how cool is it that no matter what happens, the grace of God NEVER leaves us and never forsakes us? Truly, it is amazing grace. “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 #thehonestShruth
