A few months ago I was introduced to an amazing resource that has encouraged me as a wife and as a Christian entrepreneur. I have been so impressed by their magazine, Bible study workbooks and blog, that I want to introduce you to them too! Click Read More below to get their Bible Study FREE!
Grace has been described as a sphere of constant forgiveness. Undeserved, unmerited favor. Being shown love, even when we are unlovable. Grace is one blessing after another that we don't deserve.
The life of Paul is an amazing example of God's Grace. After years of persecuting the followers of Christ, Paul (or Saul as he was called at the time), encountered Jesus on the road to Damascus and became God's chosen instrument to proclaim His name all over the world. (Acts 9)
Can you imagine your worst enemy having an encounter with you that causes them to completely change their tune and celebrate you instead?
I don't always display an attitude of gratitude. 'Always' is the key word here. I'm grateful when I receive something I've been wishing and praying for. I always remember to say "Thank You" when I receive great customer service at a restaurant or a store. I send thank you notes. texts and emails when people go out of their way to show kindness to me. But I still have room to grow in the gratitude department, because a true attitude of gratitude requires gratefulness even when I don't get what I want or wish for.
I seriously love that movie! When I tell people that, I get one of 3 reactions: I love it too! I haven't seen it! Or....I saw it, but I thought it was a bit cheesy in parts. But whatever your reaction, put that aside for a second because this is NOT a movie review. This IS my testimony of how a movie had a profound effect on my life.
I have a confession. I am a recovering shopaholic. I didn't used to be able to leave my house without a designer handbag on my arm. I know it sounds ridiculous and I'm truly embarrassed to admit it now, but for years it was part of my identity and I literally felt naked without one.
