It's hard to see faithfulness as the anthem when unfairness clouds our judgment accusations flood our hearing.

But God is always faithful. No matter what we feel.

He has a plan and He has a purpose in the wrestling and the messy middles we find ourselves walking through. He even has a plan for the unfair moments that are not of our own doing but still find ourselves wading in, because we are in the middle of the journey till we meet His perfection at our end.
We are still in the midst of the temporal chaos till we are completed in Christ. And everything is an opportunity to see His faithfulness hard at work.
God meets us in these moments and we have a chance to choose grace there. His Spirit draws from the deep places a melody of hope in the midst of what feels wrong, where we want to defend ourselves and rant against the confessions of one another so that our name is not ravaged by the world. And all those things seem futile when we understand the brevity of our existence here... but we don't always see it when our souls are weary and waiting.

Grace is a word we tend to throw around loosely, leave it to feel shallow because it is used so often. But grace is anything but common. God's grace flows from a depth we cannot define and the more we use it the more extraordinary it becomes.

Friends, the reality is... we are not called to be first or best or better than anyone. We are called to love unconditionally, to serve till we are empty, to encourage and uplift and to build up so that others can see Christ in us, not a perfected image of a white-washed tomb.
We are all called to be encouragers.
We are all meant to pour out grace lavishly from the blessings of love He has poured over us.
We are all meant to be equippers and prayers and leaders of mercy.
Because we are all running a race. And we all want to make it to that final destination to hear the same affirmation, "Well done faithful servant."
And in order to finish well, sometimes we need to help someone else cross the finish line first.
I'd love it if you joined me at the #GraceMoments Link Up today... to read her story and to see why it moved me so deep.

Sometimes a sentence can stop you... make you pause and consider the gravity of it. Paul starts many of the letters in the New Testament with a salutation of grace and a prayer for peace of God to those who read them. And I realized that maybe, perhaps, we need to consider the seeds we sow when we greet one another... do we sow grace in the hopes of reaping peace?

We ought to.

God etches grace in a map on our soul to lead us wherever we go, friends. We only have to look at the indicators He has given us to locate the direction we must travel.

Grace, Love, Truth, and Hope all point us to look surely in His direction. And my prayer for us all today, is that our wandering hearts would be bound to His and we would be lost completely in Him as we continue our journey.

When we focus on seeking God in the mundane moments, we can even find wonder in the chore of going to the grocery store with our adult children. Sometimes, the more we seek God, the more we realize we are on the wining side of grace.

When we are broken in Christ it makes more room for His grace to bloom in our hearts. What are those things that have caused your hearts to shatter on the journey? Where did you see God building you up in the broken spaces?

Sometimes the most important activity we can do for our souls is to silently, expectantly, and faithfully wait for God in the stillness and let His love fill us up.

This grace thing is the way we need to start and end our conversations. Paul's letters, all 12 of them, start and end with grace. Charis, the favor of God, pointing to His peace and love. There is something about grace.
