Grace is a way of life.

Ouch! I saw this sign yesterday and I have to say it was like someone reached right out of it and pierced my heart!

I love God's grace. I love the saying, "God's Riches at Christ's Expense!" I love that God has lavished His grace on me!  I love that I can not earn it. I love His grace.

We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved. Acts 15:11

Grace, grace God's grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;

Grace, grace,God's grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 

I have a problem sharing that grace, that beautiful, undeserved grace on others. Like a spoiled child that has been given everything, yet refuses to share her belongings. 

This morning I had a conversation with God. It went like this;
Lord, I pray for _______. I know that you created this person, but I just don't like them. Could you just change them into this type of person.

"Jann, I created them exactly the way that I wanted. When you choose not to lavish my grace on someone you are saying that I made a mistake in creating them."

"Who are you, my friend, to talk back to God? A clay pot does not ask the man who made it, Why did you make me like this? After all, the man who makes the pots has the right to use the clay as he wishes, and to make two pots from the same lump of clay, one for special occasions and the other for ordinary use. Romans 9:20-21 (GNT)

As God lovingly, rebuked my selfishness and ungratefulness. It was as if He 
reached right out of these verses and pierced my heart!
His Grace and love is for everyone, not just who we think is deserving

Father, Your grace is amazing! I acknowledge my ungrateful heart. 
Thank you for teaching me that your grace is for everyone! 
You are stretching and growing me and it hurts a little. 
Thank you for piercing my heart. Jann
