Grace Journey – day 8 – eyes to see

I’m reading a book right now called “Everything” by Mary DeMuth. Here’s a favorite quote thus far:

“The gospel isn’t a life management program. It shouldn’t merely be the crutch we fall on when life gets ugly. It should be the legs we walk on, the air we breathe.”

I wish I had more energy to write more tonight but after a busy weekend away, I’m beat. I took care of myself by immediately having a hot bath after the kids went to bed and then tucking myself in. It’s 9:00 and I’m in bed, ready to shut out the light.

I am thinking of God’s grace that is freely available to all of us. I am thinking about how amazing that good news was to me as a brand new believer 9 years ago. I am thinking about the grace journey I’ve been on, especially in the last year. This freedom in Christ permeates my whole life, and I continue to be so grateful. I am going to steep myself in God. He is the legs I walk on and the air I breathe.


Love, C
