From the Front Porch: Grace
Grace fills our lives with good things;
Grace is a gift from above—
Grace fills our home with beauty;
Grace fills our hearts with love.
Because God is love, there is grace…and because there is grace there is hope…and because there is hope we can put a song into our day, faith into prayers, joy into our obedience, and love into our actions.
In our own strength we can only do so much, in our own wisdom we can only know so much, in our own love we can only give so much. Jesus Christ said that He came to give us life and He gives it to us in overwhelming generosity and abundance. He wants us to daily focus on His resources, not our limitations.
The heart of God will always move you on to new vistas of His goodness, new treasures of His grace, new understanding of His purposes, and to new discoveries of His love. He will do it with the beauty of His presence, with the affirmation of His promises, with the hand of His blessing, and with the endless assurance of His love.
-Paraphrase Ephesians 1:17,18
God’s blessings are endless, His grace is measureless, and His love is matchless.
