On social media November always seems to bring out the Thankfulness posts. I love reading these. Spending a month of noting things we are thankful for seems to prepare our hearts and fill them with some sense of gratitude as we enter the consumerized Christmas season.
So (a day late) last night I started thinking about the things I am thankful for. Grace was the first thing that came to mind. Without God’s awesome grace I am nothing and I have none of the other things that I can be thankful for- family, friends, provision, etc. Because He loved me so much, he extended grace to me. No blog I write or tasks I do can earn me that grace. He simply gives it just because I am his darling.
So will you join me in being thankful for grace this month? I will post where I’ve seen God’s grace in my life daily and I would love for you to comment or even post on your social media with the same.
Because of my sin, I deserve to be removed from God. But because he picked me and He loves me, I am saved. He created me and saved me so that I could forever glorify Him.
Ephesians 2:8-9- For by grace you have been saved through faith. This is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works; so that no one may boast.
